Type 2 is our bare bones structure for customers
looking for a basic ready to use telescope.
These are manual push-to telescopes.
Some would say that push-to scopes are for the purest and the challenges of hunting down and finding faint fuzzies is half the journey.
With that said...these scopes are not available with goto tracking systems.
ALL OPTION 2 telescopes are custom built to order. Please call for pricing and restrictions
Everything listed in Option 1
Sizes smaller than 22" come with a Moonlite dual rate focuser. Sizes 22" and up come with a Feathertouch focuser. Add $230.00 for Feathertouch focuser
