Carrying Handle

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 

Is it possible (or advisable) to add a carrying handle to an 8” dob tube? It’s a [removed word] to cart about! Has anyone tried this? Any tips???

Cheers 👍🏻

I usually fit a carry hande to a dob. WDS Ltd ia good source of handles. I also fit a small handle near the focuser to make it easier to move the scope.
