Telescope Support Systems was founded by a pair of guys who live and breathe astrophotography. Between us we have over 40 years of experience. While we currently shoot with CCD's and DSLR's, a peek in our storage lockers will reveal film and film cameras, hypering tanks, cold cameras and a slew of "stuff" to aid in astrophotography. Over the years we have both come to realize that eliminating differential flexure is one of the hardest things to get right (after getting proper focus).
Having access to state of the art CNC machining equipment made it an easy decision to start designing our own support equipment. This let us see what works and what does not. Over the last few years we have developed a system of tube rings and supports that are designed to be robust, lightweight and work extremely well. This is what we offer to you, our fellow astrophotographers.
Telescope Support Systems manufactures a complete line of astrophotography products. All of our support equipment is made from solid 6061-T651 aircraft aluminum and manufactured on "state of the art" CNC machining centers. All components are then anodized black for looks and protection. Fasteners and springs are made from stainless steel for corrosion resistance.
Telescope Support Systems is dedicated to providing high quality products to the astrophotography community at competitive prices. Success will be measured by our customer's choosing us because of their belief in our ability to meet or exceed their expectations of quality, service, and expertise.
