Not built strong enough for my Skywatcher 12" Collapsible Go-To Dobsonian

The horizontal metal bar opposite the handle bar and holding the two front wheels and two leveling bolts bowed noticeably due to the weight of the telescope. As a result, the two vertical reinforcing boards on the sides of the base hit one of the leveling bolts in azimuth rotation. I had to remove the bolt and take two inches off its length to solve the problem. I'm certain that this would not happen if the scope was not Go-To. There is a significant difference in weight compared to my Apertura 12" Dob. On the positive side, the Wheeley Bar made moving the telescope a breeze moving it from my garage to the side of the house. Just be careful to stabilize the scope with your other hand as you move it.

Foreign order

Good service. Would recommend and use again.

Better than a hand dolly

Nice mover for a heavy dob but overpriced for what it is. A handy person could make something similar for a lot less money.



JMI Wheeley Bars - Meade 10/12 Inch Lightbridge and other Dobsonians


JMI Wheeley Bars - Meade 10/12 Inch Lightbridge create an easy way to move mounted telescopes to and from observing locations. This is a customized model with four large 10″ all-terrain pneumatic wheels and a tow handle, consisting of a sturdy base with locking wheels and leveling bolts. Easily move, lock and level the complete telescope assembly from location to location without the need to disconnect and reconnect all the electrical and computer cabling during transport.

Standard Wheeley Bars are designed to be used on hard flat surfaces only. The optional large-wheel upgrade, with great care in maneuvering and ideal conditions, can be used on grass, dirt and gravel surfaces. Wheeley Bars are generally designed to be used with the tripod legs almost fully retracted to reduce the overall width.

Compatible with:

    • Meade LightBridge 10″ / 12" (Due to variations in foot placement on the 10" LightBridge, one or more of the feet on the base of the scope may need to be moved in order for this scope to fit)

    • Adaptable to other Dobsonians with maximum 26″ Diameter Ground Board and maximum weight of 100 pounds. Again, sometimes ground board feet must be moved.

    • Apertura AD12
    • Orion SkyQuest XT12 / XX12 (Some modification is neeeded to make the Go-To scopes fit due to placement of four nuts on the azimuth bolt mounting plate (bottom of scope/ground board).

    • Zhumell 10″ / 12″
    • Sky-Watcher 12″


Note: The heavier the telescope mounted on the Wheeley Bars, the more careful one must be in moving the complete system by pulling or pushing below the center of gravity. JMI is not responsible for incorrect loading or operation.
