Orion Optics 150 f/11 Dob on eBay


Recommended Posts

you are right John. they don't offer this currently as far as I know.

I can say this is a truly superb planetary scope. other objects are still good but I prefer my 12" for them.

the base is tall and spindly and not as sturdy as other models and has a very long tube (60") so it is naturally top heavy.

see my thread for some of the mods I made, most of which I consider essential, especially the reduction of the toppling risk by adding some weight at the bottom. I hope this helps people considering buying this.

ps it's also a comparatively rare scope. Barry or John at OOUK said that in terms of numbers of this scope ordered and sold it was a collector's item!

If I didn't have the SkyWatcher 150PL f/8 now fiited with an OO 1/12PV mirror I'd definately be bidding on it.

PS

Just got to get the dob base for thr 150PL finished now. :)
