Truss telescopes may look alike from a distance, but the beautiful golden blonde Baltic Birch complimented by the black accents always stands out among Truss Newtonians. The closer you look, the more obvious the superior workmanship, finish and performance becomes. Sky and Telescope magazine called the TeleKit a 'heirloom Dobsonian' in their June 1998 review.

A Lycra light shroud and transport system are standard. Only the highest quality stainless steel hardware is used.Quantum finished TeleKit sizes of 24 to 32 inches are considered custom since they are made to order. Custom delivery times can be 3-5 months. Regular delivery times can vary from 4 weeks to 4 months depending on the size of the telescope and stock on hand. Each Quantum has a customer file that is started when the order is placed. This will take about five minutes.
