"Mark worked tirelessly with me on my mount project. I had many ideas for customization and changes that I wanted to make and he worked with me on every single aspect of it. He would not rest until I was satisfied and his attention to detail and commitment to his customers is truly amazing. Thank you again for everything you did, Mark. I am truly grateful and very happy with my mount."

8" Dobsonian: Collapsible mount, tube fitting small bearings, 8" mirror cell. Ordered as a kit.

Marcelo Ianini in Rio Di Janeiro built this with our collapsible mount kit. Collapsible mounts fold flat to 5" height. This Brazilian beauty is the telescope version of The Girl From Ipanema!

AstroGoods has shipped to customers in Australia, Asia, Europe, and North and South America.
Above: Our standard 6 point flotation cell for 8", 10" and 12" mirrors. All cells are designed optimized to your mirror's specifications for top performance.

Below: Altitude bearing and support for mounting on a mirror box. We offer a wide range of custom altitude bearings for many design solutions.
Attention To Stiffening Long Or Heavy Telescopes

This mount is designed for a very long focal length newtonian. Internal stiffeners were custom designed to fit the tube's diameter. We add other stiffeners both internal and extetnal depending on the tube assembly length and weight to solve for rigidity.

The MN66 Mak-Newtonian is a heavy telescope and required significant additional stiffeners. In order to stabilize it sufficiently a back brace and outboard butresses were added to the internal stiffeners.
