I have my eye on it, but the 827 miles to Connecticut is bugging me.

A case could be made that it is the little brother of the AP f/6 105 Traveler - equipped with a Unitron Super Focuser....

That is a great deal and the seller is a great guy! If I hadn't taken the "no more" oath, it would be making it's way to me as we speak (or type) ;) .

http://www.ebay.com/...=item2c9ad9ec53

I would need a well heeled back just to lift the OTA. Not a bad deal really, if that 2.5" Obseravtory Cave mount can't handle that long tube.

Ok.  I'm starting a collection to own it.  I've got about $1.37 left.  Who else is in?  We need some big donors.

 

I never heard of this telescope before.  Where did it come from?  Obviously built around the Clark objective.

Such a shame. Says ships to US, may not ship to New Zealand.

Oh, and the money thing. :step:

Isn't 24K for a 12.5 inch refractor a bargain basement price regardless of the mount?

If I am not mistaken this telescope was brought to Stellafane and setup on breezy hill around 1998 or so.

Though the Lundin pier and OTA look the same the "motor" looks different - maybe upgraded with something a little more recent.

 

I remember it was late afternoon and we watched as the owner attached the objective/cell  to the OTA ...

When we came back to visit later that same night we had some amazing views, but its the beautiful images of Uranus  that I remember the most.

 

I should have some (film) pictures - I will post when I find them.

 

Excellent Observatory instrument.

Regarding the Criterion mount:

 

Ken is a CNCT member. He didn't "do this" to the mount!

But it does look like it would make a nice restoration.

Oh man, if only that thing were close enough for a weekend drive....   Although I don't particularly want a GEM for my visual scope for my observatory, I'd install this in a heartbeat (using one of my Byers drives).  I'd move the RA drive to the Dec axis.  Interestingly, it appears to be the same drive that Cave uses.
