This is a used 8” inch f/6 Newtonian reflector optical tube. The focuser and mirror mount are from Meade, and the 8” mirror and elliptical secondary are from Coulter. The 8 “ mirror is clean, but has a small discoloration about the size of a fingernail, which does not affect performance.

The telescope is in good condition but has some minor wear and oxidation. The optical tube is fiberglass with black flocking on the interior. There are brackets for a finder scope, but no finder.

There are two attachment rings, each with a machine screw and knurled knob for attaching the tube to an equatorial, alt-azumith, or dobsonian mount. The rings are hinged, so it is easy clamp/unclamp them to remove the tube from the rings and mount.

Because of the bulk and weight, I strongly recommend that the tube be picked up in the Los Angeles area.
