Too heavy, need a 5” shaft mount, can’t get it balanced, too heavy to carry out , won’t fit in the Vette, don’t like the focuser, need to modify it with hacksaw, sledgehammer, mig welder, jackhammer, grenade! Just messing with you chief. Is  it the one in GA?

I think he’s turning a new leaf. I think will keep it indefinitely. If it’s the one in GA it’s a one of a kind optics...

Nothing will be changed on the scope or parted out.  Nice little 6" that needs only paint.
