16" f/4.5 truss Dobson

Recommended Posts

This is the second 16" truss Dobson I've build. This time not for myself, but for a friend of mine. The design is almost equal to my own 16", only the secondary cage is a little bit shorter and lighter. Is has the "Mauro di Lio" primary cooling, it has front side collimation knobs and a secondary dew heater.

The transport dimensions of the scope are approx. 21x21x21 inches, The total weight around 60 lbs. including the 25 lbs GSO primary.
