Quote:A while back I bought a nice 6in f12 lens in its cell and I am looking for a tube to mount this objective. I contacted Gary at D&G and after 1.5 years I cannot get a clear answer from him when the tube will be available for delivery ... Are there any other telescope tube suppiers I could be looking at ? -

Quote:It's a little bit unclear to me whether the OP wants a bare tube or a finished OTA minus the lens that he already has.Parallax could provide an OTA.JimC
Quote:No worries Mike, I think that is what D & G do too.I make my own thin plywood tubes because it is hard to get aluminium tubing here.

Gloss white or gloss metallic black enamel is available at additional cost of $130.Shipping to my destination will cost $140 ...So its about $1,300 for a complete OTA - I supply the Objective the Cell and the focuser..
