Clearance item, this has been my personal premier telescope for the last 7 years. I have moved on to a larger system and am clearing this unit at under cost - it is available for pickup from our Bentleigh telescope showroom only, plus payment for this system is only available in cash on pick up - with thanks.
About the Astronomy Alive 368mm Hand-Crafted Newtonian Reflector Telescope...
ULTRA ADVANCED LEVEL TELESCOPE - Exceptional capability premium quality telescope for the most demanding Advanced users. Highest possible performance for those that wish to achieve much more. Increased performance on the moon, planets, stars, double stars, star clusters, globular star clusters, nebulae & galaxies. Ability to resolve celestial objects that other systems simply are incapable of achieving unless you purchase exotic quality & capability systems such as Officina Stellare.
Pickup only available, I am not prepared to ship this unit due to size and weight.
Are you looking for a Custom Engineered Research Grade reflector telescope that's a cut above? Do you want a Newtonian reflector telescope which performs like the finest apochromatic refractor when it comes to resolution on fine details? Is a reflector telescope which digs out the best in colour correction and brilliance on deep sky objects what you really want? Then you really need to take a closer look at the Astronomy Alive 14.5" Hand-Crafted Newtonian Reflector Telescope...
The Astronomy Alive 368mm Custom Newtonian Reflector Telescope isn't a mass produced set of optics. It's a hand-crafted telescope built to your specifications and done so with all the quality and expertise that you demand. Meticulously designed by global leading master telescope makers and assembled by Australian Master Craftsmen, this telescope will perform above and beyond your expectations. At its heart is a 368mm full thickness parabolic mirror by Galaxy optics USA. This diffraction limited design is based on a focal length of 1680mm f/4.5.
Plus Quartz Glass Ultra Exotica capability zero expansion glass Secondary mirror - coated using the Electron Beam Deposition (EBD) process coating enabling a 99% reflectivity, which is not available commercially on anything less than exotica level telescopes costing 5 times this unit or even much more !!
From there the primary mirror becomes part of a single optic coating process where they receive an enhanced aluminum coating and a silicone dioxide overcoat. This unique process gives the coatings an estimated 20 years of life. We only use one focuser with these systems - the gorgeous Astro Systems Phase 4 Kevlar ulytra smooth Crayford unit.
The Astronomy Alive 14.5" Hand-Crafted Newtonian Reflector Telescope represents the finest optics that you will find anywhere. These telescopes are made by people who care... they care about quality of the product they make and they care about your astronomy experience. Each telescope is made just for you and its strong, robust construction means you'll have a telescope that you'll be proud to pass down to your children and grandchildren.
Let the stars sparkle in your eyes...
Astronomy Alive 368mm Custom Newtonian Reflector Telescope Features...
* Mirrors are crafted from the finest custom hand crafted by Galaxy Optics USA, diffraction limited and made to specification.
* Full range of accessory options available
What will you be able to see with the Astronomy Alive 14.5" Custom Reflector Telescope? Be prepared to fall in love with the night. This telescope will light up galaxies, nebula and star clusters will explode like fireworks in the eyepiece. But that's not all. This well-tuned telescope will reveal fantastic detail on the tallest mountains on the Moon, along with deep craters and vast grey seas. You'll love the views of Jupiter as you watch its moons - Callisto, Ganymede, Io and Europa - shuttle around the banded planet. Saturn will reveal divisions in its ring system and you'll see it's moons of Titan, Tethys, Rhea & Dione. Need more? This telescope will do something that commercial gear at this price range simply doesn't achieve, and that's resolve the most difficult Deep Space object in the entire night sky - the fabulous Horsehead Nebula - IN THE EYEPIECE !!
Then follow the phases of Venus and Mercury and revel in the details you'll see on Mars during opposition. This telescope can also reveal the pale orbs of Neptune and Uranus, too!
