This is the end of a dream. Recent diagnosis of issues with 3 discs in my back necessitate this sale. This mirror and secondary came out of a working DOB. I was working on rebuilding an older DOB structure and got as far as re-making the rocker box out of baltic birch when I got the news about my back. Those parts are also available for purchase by the buyer, and will be listed separately, but buyer will need to cover shipping (wont be cheap) or pick them up. Although the scope is fully functional, I wanted to re-do it all in baltic birch.

I know everyone will ask for numbers on the mirror, but I have none. All I have to go on is that thru this scope I have resolved globs to their core, seen the veil - I mean REALLY seen the veil - seen structure in the dumbell, etc.
The mirror is pyrex and approx 1.75-2" thick. Focal length is between 4.6-4.8. Coatings on both mirrors look good. Some coating is coming off of a small part at the very far edge of the seondary and the primary has about a nickel sized smudge - tried my best to get a pic of it.

Primary will ship in custom wooden box as shown. Secondary will be well packaged too. Primary weighs around 75 lbs.

All items sold as-is, where-is.

Price is 3200.00 . Will also consider reasonable offers.

Shipping will run around 65.00 -100.00 in the CONUS. Will ship elsewhere at buyer's expense.

I accept paypal (pls add 3%) , wire transfers. Will also accept checks form CN memebrs with longstanding accounts and good ratings. Please understand that nothing will ship until the check clears both my bank and the buyer's bank.
Clear,Dark Skies to all !
