Arrow GSO BT252 f/4 Carbon Truss Newtonian

I like big telescopes. I also have a spine that's been crushed in 3 vertebrae. These two things don't tend to work together.


I'm putting my newest scope for sale because I can't lift it into place without help. (It's not that heavy, just awkward for me)


Asking price $1990. I have added a kendrick secondary dew heater, which is included.
  • f/4 10 Newtonian Astrograph
  • 1016mm Focal Length
  • Carbon Fiber Serrurier Truss Tube Design
  • 2 Dual-Speed Linear Crayford Focuser with 1.25 adapter.
  • D-style Dovetails Bars on Top and Bottom
  • 3 Cooling Fans for faster cooling of the Primary Mirror



Bought new from bintel 6 months ago for $2500

Stock photo attached for now. I will upload some actual photos ASAP.

It's seen 7 nights use, mainly due to being too big for me to move with a broken neck. Storage has been indoors, usage has been in a permanent observatory.

Some pics of the actual scope. I forgot to mention I have put high strength Velcro in various places as that's how I mount all of my electronics. It's easy to remove if required.

Also attached is the only photo I took with it, as I have not bought a robo-focuser yet.
