Free for pickup only. A 10" f/4.5 reflector with rings (no dovetail).  The mirror & diagonal could use a fresh aluminizing, but it works OK as is.  Has a Crayford style focuser of unknown origin.  The mirror is a Meade, possibly from a Starfinder.  Tube is solid aluminum.  I don't have a suitable mount any longer and it's just too big for my taste.  I was told that John Crilly used this scope for astrophotography some years back.  It was free to me, so I'm passing it on.  I live in southwestern NH.

This is such a cool bit of kit. Thanks again, Charlie! I'm hatching plans to get her cleaned up and back under the stars where she belongs - just a little polish, no paint, love that metallic retro look.

p.s. love to get a look at that collection of yours, classic scopes are really neat.

edit: taken

 

I have a Japanese Meade 8x50 straight through finder in white that I dropped.  One of the crosshair wires is derpy but the glass and everything else is good.  If one of you guys likes finders with derpy wires, or would like to fix the wire, you can have it for the price of shipping.

Aw man that hurts! This is my best fixed finder, Japan and a perfect non-astigmatic objective.

That will make someone happy.
