Skywatcher Dob baseboard


Recommended Posts

I was wondering that.

Dobserver how well does it behave on rough surfaces? I have a local dark site, but I'm thinking a dob might not work well on a rough/unevent/non flat surface,



You need to get alll 3 feet firmly on the ground so it will not wobble. You could replace the standard feet with something bit larger / taller for rugged terrain.

If the scope is tilted too much it will swing around under it's own weight as the bearings (deliberately) don't provide much friction.
