I just decided to build a recreation of the famed Questar cutaway scope shown here.

I'm looking for a beater scope with bad drive, heavy damage, non functional, disaster. The one you've had in your closets "for parts".

Maybe the whole thing, or just parts. For example:
  • Moon map or blank dew shield with catastrophic damage only one one side (which can be cut away).
  • OTA with nasty dent on only one side (I have this but it has dents all over on the moon map, and it's a Duplex and I prefer a Standard.)
  • Dented base housing (no matter how pitted).
  • Damaged forks.
  • Nonfunctional motor.
  • Bent discs.
  • Spare knobs.
I have a spare optics set, in additional to the battered Duplex OTA with good control box. Ideal would be a complete mount/drive with some fatal flaw that renders it worthless to you.

I gladly accept donations, and will pay shipping. I will also express public gratitude to contributors as the project proceeds.

Maybe let me know what you can contribute and I'll see how things go before I have anyone ship anything. I'm definitely not looking to spend $500 on a beater drive or OTA. I'm looking for donations, or my paying your shipping, or a few bucks for you to be worth your trouble. Thanks for considering helping!
