Quick Overview

This KIT is designed for those who already own a computerized equatorial mount such as N-EQ6 SynScan and want to buy all the products that allow you to create their own SPIDER230 amateur radio telescope.

By combining the technologies of radio astronomy to the astronomy ones, you can install our 2.3 meters parabolic antenna in the same way of a normal optical tube: now you can discover the world of amateur radio astronomy in a simple way and without the need to have radio knowledge (or be a radio amateur).

Availability: 2015 model available from April


SPIDER230 is a modular amateur radio telescope, designed to bring the world of radio astronomy also to amateur astronomers who observe the sky with optical telescopes. Thanks to the particular design, it is possible to use our WEB230 2.3 meters diameter parabolic antenna just as if it were a normal optical tube: if you already have a computerized mount with at least 25 kg of load capacity and Losmandy plate (such as the N-EQ6 SynScan), now you can also have a real amateur radio telescope complete and easy to use!

This kit includes all the instruments needed to build the SPIDER230 radio telescope using your computerized equatorial mount EQ6 type.


A complete and functional instrument:

- WEB230 parabolic dish with support device for equatorial mounts

Alignment optical finder system on mount counterweight shaft

50mm finder, 8 magnifications, with glass solar filter

RAL10PL receiver thermal stabilized and with waterproof box

- Ku-band feed-horn

- High gain and stability Ku-band 4106C LNB

- RadioUniverse control and RUviz processing software

- User and installation manual (english and italian)


NOTE: in order to use our WEB230 parabolic antenna on an equatorial mount, it is necessary that the mount is installed on a column or on a tripod with very low legs. Otherwise (for example using the tripod provided with EQ6 type mounts), the antenna would touch the tripod legs during the radio telescope movements. We therefore recommend our C82 column (which also offers greater stability compared to a classic tripod). For more information click here.

Fast and secure shipping with UPS 

Do you want to buy the telescope but you can not visit us in our laboratory in Pordenone or you do not have available a transport car large enough to contain it? No problem! We designed this KIT to be easily removable and can be divided into 4 sturdy boxes: in this way we can ship it via UPS. Each carton box is composed of a thick outer carton and several internal carton boxes which divide various internal components. The instruments are well protected for a prompt and secure shipment.

All the elements that make up the instrument are pre-installed then you have just to follow the instructions to install it in a short time and get started right away!
