New Moon Telescopes will be at NEAF again this year, so I thought it a great opportunity to save on shipping for some customers if you decided to just pick up a scope there. The ad specifies the Hybrid in particular, however, I would be happy to deliver either a classic or Hybrid to NEAF for pick up. Order must be placed before the end of December to have it delivered in time.
About the Hybrid:
No cheap plywoods-only solid woods are used for the rocker and mirror box. Draw-bored mortise and tenon joints connect the rocker, while box joints are used for the mirror box. The images show some cherry, walnut, and maple. Currently we have maple, white oak, ash and a small amount of cherry left.
Solid aluminum upper ring, powder-coated black.
Our Sky and Tel "Hot-Product" aluminum crescent bearings, also powder-coated black.
One-piece collapsible truss system.
Dual speed Moonlite focuser with Feathertouch upgrade available.
Dual boundary layer fan system with optional fan underneath cell.
18-point flotation cells on any scope larger than 12.5", and 9-point flotation on 12.5" and below.
Steel sling edge support connected to linear bearings that adjust for collimation.
Telrad or Rigel finder.
Astrosystems Spider with secondary holder (thumb screw collimation-no tools).
The Hybrid is made to be extremely rigid, but its compact nature results in a significant weight savings as well.
We can use any optician you choose, and have built the Hybrid in the following sizes:
8", 12", 12.5", 14", 15", 16" 18", 20" and 22". Faster focal ratios work better with this design. 12.5" and under, F5 is the slowest. 14"-16" must be F4.5 or faster. 20"-22" must be F4 or faster.
Prices start at $2998.00
