HOW I FIXED MY HEAVY 12" DOB TO MOVE IT EASIER

It was TOOOOOO  heavy for me to move my 12 inch dob around, I came up with the idea of putting handles and wheels on it!  Works great so I have to share how I pumped up the functionality of the scope.

When you say it is my telescope making noises what did you mean?

NiteSkyGirl said...

Oh .. great question Shaun!

It makes an echo noise in the tube, I always get asked if the wheel was being squished, or for a better word, flattened. The noise happens because it is echoing in the tube.

I want to thank you for sharing. Especially how you mentioned getting a guy who knows how to drill into a telescope tube.
And the fact of going to an astronomy club for help.

THANK YOU! You are very resourceful.
