Most of us move our telescopes from the house to the yard, or the car to an observing site, in pieces, whether some of the components are in a case or not.  However, some people prefer to keep their telescope assembled to save set-up and break-down time, especially if most of their observations are done on their own patio, lawn, or driveway.  In these instances, telescope wheeley bars or hand carts can be a real help!  

The hand carts we offer are reminicent of a wagon (a wagon with a hole in it!) and operate similarly.  These telescope carts are made for large Dobsonians, where the base is a large, bulky square and can fit easily into the opening between the wheels.  Sit your big Dob securely in the frame with the OTA pointing up, grab the handle, and away you go.

Wheeley Bars, made by JMI, are made for telescopes with tripods.  Each tripod foot sits in its own holder, and then the whole telescope can be wheeled out the door and on to the patio or driveway with ease.  The wheels lock into place to keep the whole thing from rolling.  When you're finished observing for the night, simply unlock the wheels and roll that puppy back into your garage or house, and you will soon be in bed catching some z's.
