15" Obsession telescope for sale. #656. Purchased new in 2002. Torus mirror. Recoated in 2006 by Torus/OMI. Feathertouch 2" focuser. Counterweight kit. JMI altitude and azimuth encoders. Obsession light shroud. Argo Navis circa 2002. 2" Catseye collimator.

I Prefer not to ship; I'd rather you come pick it up in Roswell, GA. I'd also be willing to drive a bit to meet you somewhere to hand it off.

The telescope is in very good condition. The mirror is pristine. There are a couple minor scratches on the wood, but they could be easily touched up.

Priced to sell at $1500. It hasn't gotten any use in the last 10 years, and I'd just like to see it go to a good home.

I also have a 27 mm TeleVue Panoptic that is the prefect wide-angle eyepiece for this telescope. I could throw that in for an extra $150 if you're interested (once again, priced to sell).

Here are a bunch of pictures showing more detail:

I forgot to include pictures of the removable wheelbarrow handles, but they are included.

You can see the scratches in the base in the first several pictures. They are not deep.

The hacked-up, but functional Telrad is included if you want it. It is zip-tied to the upper tube assembly -- no adhesive tape is used.

I added doll-house wiring tape along the spider to some heat wire in the secondary to serve as a dew-heater. You can see this in the pictures.

In the pictures near the end, you can see the shroud (in its bag), the 2" Catseye collimator, and the Argo Navis.

I also included a few pictures of the 27 mm Panoptic if you're interested.


  • Condition Very good
