I have a 16"f7 i am well known in the solar system imaging section. I want to get into dso work the only issue is my scope is susceptible to the slightest breeze and i an getting tire of going up a 10foot lader to get to the focus so I intend to try a 16" f5 thinking the 32" shorter tube may be a help.I can sell the whole 16"f7 as a dob for 2000 dollars but then i have to build a whole new tube not a big deal i will sell the 16f7 pegasus optics mirror for 1000 it has some surface marks its 1.58 thick so it needs an 18 point cell has one hip off the side o the mirror. i got the test report from this mirror but unfortunately lost it . I had to move 3 times to find a place i could use my scope. here is a pic of the truss tube on my mount and some images i got from it.
so just to be clear i just want to try going with a shorter 16 inch fl or i will also entertain the purchase of a 12" f 5 or 6 mirror and secondary spider

Last entry What I would like to accomplish is to be able to find a buyer for my mirror and a seller for a 16 f5 then its a mater of getting my mirror shipped and getting the new mirror so i just have a week of down time. this mirror would be a lot happier in a bobsonian not on a gem with a high powered cam plugged into it
