Farpoint Astronomical Research introduces upgrade kits for Zhumell 10- and 12-inch Dobsonian telescopes ($119.99). The kit includes a snap-on light shield that prevents stray light from entering the front of the telescope, while 3 machined primary-mirror-cell collimation knobs with tension springs eliminate the need for tools in the field. A magnetic bag weight allows you to effortlessly re-balance the telescope when switching eyepieces. And two lifting straps make placing your OTA on its rocker base easier to lift.
