Nice classic with a unique way to use a porro.

That would work! :)

Oh man that is tempting. Someone please save the optics!! Who needs another big Dob?!

Not another dob!  

 

A springfield mount would be perfect for those optics:

This is a Edmund 'Space Challenger VI' I know of only one other in existence.

Made I think for just one year 1976 it was a photo equatorial with the Edmund

Extra Heavy Duty mounting, Deluxe finder, a 2 inch focuser, and clock drive.

The Edmund (UPCO) mirrors were 1/8 wave at this time, I have a six inch from this

time period and it's astounding.

Someone should go save this instrument, for your own enjoyment and preserve

it for the future of mankind.

If it was a lot closer, I might think about it.  It's the price of an 80mm Tasco.

It will be for sale soon.  I was so tempted to have them drop it off at a pack and ship place, but I really am running out of space.  Not for more scopes, but to able to move aroundcrazy.gif
