Well were should I start. Hmmm how about “I have just received my brand new 16” F4.5 Dob. From Night Sky Scope”. I have looked through a lot of other dobs in the past few years and always have had gripes about each one of them. So when I used Jim Nadeau’s 12.5” F4.5 Dob., if you don’t know he is the owner of Night Sky Scope Dobs, it was at our local observing site. I was a little optimistic about how great this scope was supposed to be, since all of the others I have used were good but not to my liking, well I guess I do not have to say much else on that since I own one now.

If you hate when your using high power looking a planets or for dim fuzzies and you try to nudge the scope and zoom its off looking 10 degrees past the object. With a Night Sky Scope Dob that never happens. Also, if you hate to set up your dob in the dark because you have so many pieces to put together, then the Night Sky Scope Dob is for you. If you would like collimation to be a breeze and hold all night guess what scope to buy, and now with the use of the Eq. platform, very high magnification planetary observing and photography is easily in your grasp.

I have to say that it is a joy working with Jim, he will even help you pick the best mirror if you need help doing so, and the wait time to receive the scope is far better than the other dob makers. And last but not least the price is unbelievable for all that you receive with the scope.
