It's time for me to downsize, so I am looking for a new caretaker for this scope. I am only the second owner, having bought it locally from a friend. Lots of memories with this one, but time to pass it on.

The optics are excellent. Jupiter rocks in this scope. The tube has always been stored sealed with the included end caps. No need to recoat the mirror! The tube exterior though could use a new coat of paint, as a bit has peeled. The previous owner added the 2-inch focuser, I have added a Telrad. The motor drive on the pedestal equatorial mount is still in working order. If one does not care for equatorially mounted reflectors, someone handy could easily turn this into a dob and enjoy outstanding views.

Local pickup only in Kennesaw, Georgia, or possibly a short drive, as the scope is too bulky for me to mess with shipping.

Asking $300. Glass solar filter is also available for small extra charge. Photos on request.

Interested? Let's talk!



  • Condition Good, with excellent optics
  • Location Kennesaw (ATL), Georgia
