Visits Since March 1999
with a large scope and a higher latitude, we have a beautiful Dual-axis
Aluminum Platform. It is used but in excellent (almost new) condition.
It was built for use with both a 25" Obsession and a 30"
Obsession. So it can easily carry either of those two scopes or
something similar. Comes with a corded hand control that gives you
a two-speed slew in both RA and DEC. A cordless hand control is
an option, along with a built-in battery and a Polar Alignment Tool.
This Platform was designed for a nominal latitude of 45 degrees,
but will work perfectly a couple degrees on either side of that.
Original price new was $4250. It is available now for $2600, plus
|Wooden Dual-axis Platform
for an 18" to 20" dob. Would fit either size Obsession
really well. Built for a latitude of 46 degrees. Will work well
from 43 to 49 degrees. In great shape. Very solid build and pretty
heavy (45lbs). A big handle makes it easy to carry like a suitcase.
Comes with a corded hand control. Options would be a cordless hand
control, built-in battery and Polar Alignment Tool. Priced to sell
at $1500 plus crating/shipping.
|Aluminum Dual-axis Platform
for a 15-18" dob. Will also fit something like a 12" Orion
dob. Latitude is fairly low at 24.4 degrees. Could be used from
27 degrees down to about 21 degrees. So southern Florida (Miami
area or in the Keys) or southern Texas would be a good fit. In like
new condition. Comes with a corded hand control. Options would be
a cordless hand control, built-in battery and Polar Alignment Tool.
New price would be $2625. This Platform is priced at $1800 plus
