Lightweight Sandwich Mirrors

Customer Feedback

Star testing showed even images that were very nearly the same inside and outside of focus. Using my EZ tester (ronchi eyepiece) showed nice straight lines and no hint of TDE.

-Dave Chadsey

I just tentatively assembled my 10" F4.7 1/17 PV wavefront mirror in my observatory and watched Jupiter and the moon last night. Although the air condition was terrible due to middle of rainy season, optical performance was exactly as I expected! The surface of Jupiter was amazing. Contrast of color was deep and details were very sharp...

-Kazuki Yamane

"We tested it at the LMDSS over the weekend. It worked perfectly, nice sharp stars. We are very pleased with the result."

Chris Rudge, President, Astronomical Society of Victoria, A Century of Amateur Astronomy 1922 to 2022

Hubble Optics Around World

Hubble Optic's 1-meter-diameter parabolic mirror reflecting NASA technicians Alex Schaeffer (left) and Eric Norris (right) is in one of Goddard’s high-bay facilities. Read more here.

Hubble Optics UL24 and PCO Edge4.2 Gold sCMOS camera, used by NASA's New Horizons team, captured the MU69 occultation. Read more here.

"The telescope (Hubble UL24) performed quite well again in Argentina for the MU69 campaign there. Conditions were fairly poor with quite high winds which are typical of the area. The 24" (UL24) handled the winds fairly well with the exception of some extremely strong gusts that hit the telescope directly. The combination of the 24" (UL24) and PCO camera is excellent for occultation work. This setup easily outperforms any other portable occultation setups I know of. It is no worse, or easier, to setup than a 14" Meade or Celestron telescope, and packs in most pickup trucks or SUV's"

Hubble Optics 40" f/3.3 sandwich mirror is in action at the Leon Mow Dark Sky Site near Heathcote, Melbourne

“It’s been 6 months now since we had first light on what is Australia’s largest privately owned telescope. Situated at the ASV’s Leon Mow Dark-Sky Site in a roll off roof observatory, 2 hours north of Melbourne, the views continue to get better and better since we have learned to manage temperature of the interior of the observatory prior to using the telescope. There are a lot of objects which have been transformed for me with this aperture, but the stand-out one to date has to be glimpsing the globular cluster in NGC253 which forms a loose triangle with the two bright 9th magnitude stars south of the galaxy core. Thanks Hubble Optics for the chance to experience the views that I and the ASV have seen and will see in the future".

Hubble Optics 40" f/3.3 sandwich mirror was in operation on September 3, 2023

The totally eclipsed Moon captured with UL16 from the cruise ship, the Holland America Noordam, berthed at Brisbane, Australia on November 8, 2022. "I took several pictures with my Nikon D3300 focused at infinity, held up to the 38mm eyepiece installed on my UL16 (afocal photography). It's sharp enough that my daughter just ordered a 23" x 23" glass print of this image for me as a Christmas present! This one picture made the hassle of transporting my UL16 to the Southern Hemisphere worthwhile!" -David Anschutz

A spectacular vision of cosmic creation, this image showcases the Orion Nebula's vibrant heart, where stars are birthed in a celestial dance. Captured through a meticulous stitch of three full-size frames with the Hubble Optics HNA18 hyperbolic optics, the precision of the full-frame sensor astounds, retaining the stellar clarity to the very edges of the frame. Jonathan Rogers marvels, 'Still amazed using a full-frame sensor, stars are still sharp out to the corners.' A testament to the beauty and wonder of the universe, taken in Jan 2024 by Jonathan Rogers.
