REVIEW - THE SCOPE BUGGY TELESCOPE DOLLY
Every once in a while you see an idea that is so good, you wonder why nobody came up with it long before. So it is with the Scope Buggy.
The Scope Buggy lets you move your telescope around with ease. The tires are around 10" in diameter and will tackle your average yard without difficulty. A rod on the front wheel is used to pull and steer. The unit is nicely made with good welding and a nice black finish.
The tires provide a natural dampener and we found that the scope was quite steady at powers up to 660x!
We noted on a web site that famed astronomer David Levy has one of these. A guy who's discovered 22 comets probably uses equipment that works! - GW
