A Premium, Ultra Light, Ultra Compact and Ultra Portable Design: About half the weight of the traditional Dobsonian telescopes with a rigid 8-truss and foldable ALT bearings structure. It can be taken apart and assembled in just a few minutes, so you can easily move it around, take it to your favorite dark place, actually anywhere in the world.

Ultra Light and Ultra Strong: The Hubble ULF features an ultra light all metal structure. All parts are fabricated from steel and aluminum. The ULF has been designed with 3D CAD and optimized with FEA software to provide the optimal performance and stability.

Two in One Telescope: Hubble ULF is not only a complete Dobsonian telescope, but with the optional 2-stage Truss Tubes and Dovetail Mounting Adaptor, also can be used with an equatorial mount. The 6-point (ULF12, ULF14, and ULF16)/18-point (ULF18 and ULF20) mirror cell supports both Sling and Clips/Screws lateral support system. Of course, you can also RTV the mirror to the cell. The mirror cell features 3 sets of Brass & Stainless Steel push-pull screws for collimation.

Modular Design: The Hubble UL14F is delivered in several pre-assembled modules. The entire systems can be assembled easily and quickly, as little as a few minutes.

It is not only ideal for customers who already have 12-20 inch Hubble sandwich mirrors, but also a great way to upgrade your existing heavy weight traditional Dobsonians, such as Orion XT12/14, Meade 14"/16" Light bridge, Celestron 12"/14" StarHopper, and etc.
