I am selling my Tinsley Labs 8" Cassegrain OTA with Tinsley Equatorial head. Model no. CA, Serial No, 8007. Judging by the serial number I believe this to be a very early instrument in there production, quite possibly the 7th one produced. I purchased this from a well known Amateur Astronomer and had every intention of building a mount and restoring it but have to many projects. The telescope is in good shape for its age, the photos show the cosmetics, the mirror looks pretty good it does need cleaning and has a small scratched area near the center (see photo's). The motor is in tact but needs a power source, the right ascension clamp is pot metal and has broken but the assembly can still be secured. The only eyepiece that came with it is a K 25mm 1 1/4" however I can't guarantee that it is original Tinsley. The new owner will have to supply there own 1 1/4" eyepiece with cross hair reticle. PLEASE NOTE: My price includes care full packing and shipment via UPS Ground continental USA. I will absorb the PayPal charges also.
