"Mark worked tirelessly with me on my mount project. I had many ideas for customization and changes that I wanted to make and he worked with me on every single aspect of it. He would not rest until I was satisfied and his attention to detail and commitment to his customers is truly amazing. Thank you again for everything you did, Mark. I am truly grateful and very happy with my mount."

8" Dobsonian: Collapsible mount, tube fitting small bearings, 8" mirror cell. Ordered as a kit.

Marcelo Ianini in Rio Di Janeiro built this with our collapsible mount kit. The completed mount folds flat to 5" height. This Brazilian beauty is the telescope version of The Girl From Ipanema!

AstroGoods has shipped to customers in Australia, Asia, Europe, and North and South America.
Above: Our standard 6 point flotation cell for 8", 10" and 12" mirrors. All cells are designed optimized to your mirror's specifications for top performance.

Below: Altitude bearing and support for mounting on a mirror box. We offer a wide range of custom altitude bearings for many design solutions.
Adding Stiffness To Height

Would you like your heavy newtonian or SCT variant tube assembly on a solid Dob mount? This mount, rings and bearings combination were for a very long focal length newtonian. The internal stiffeners were custom designed to fit the tube's diameter in order to assure stiffeness on a tall mount. We add other stiffeners both internal and extetnal depending on the tube assembly length and weight to solve for rigidity.
