This telescope was built by Tom Clark of Tectron Telescopes (builder of several hundred large Dobs) around 12 years ago and used as our star party telescope, so it has been lightly used since new. ( We have a larger scope in our observatory.)

The scope only weigh 150 pounds and quickly sets up, and folds to an amazing 31 x 31 x 25 h. Truss tubes are 73”. The photo shows it sitting in our small Honda Fit tow car. Included are a Telrad and Sky Commander.

Large casters are quick on and off, so scope is easy to roll in and out.Excellent optics by Steve Dodd of Nova Optical. All coatings are in good condition and has a 3.5” diagonal for high contrast images.

Truss tubes, spider, clamp blocks, 18 point mirror cell, and very low-profile 2” focuser are all Tectron.
Come try it out at The New Mexico Astronomy Village in SW NM. If you have an RV we have full hook-ups for visiting astronomers.
