I've been asked to help "dispose of" a 16" Boller & Chivens cassegrain for Berea College in Kentucky. The college will pay for placement of the instrument and it's 14' Ash Dome onto a suitable truck or trailer. I used this telescope when I was a student there 40 years ago and it is professional grade all the way. A few years ago the scope was upgraded by DFM for remote use. Recent users report that it works fine. Current condition is dirty with bird droppings outside, clean inside the optical tube. Probably needs coatings. Telescope will be destroyed when the building is demolished this spring if no new owner is identified by May, 2021.
Is anyone interested? I can email you pictures I took of it yesterday.
Does anyone know where I can get manufacturer's documentation? B&C is long out of business and it's former parent company, Perkin-Elmer, has nothing to offer.
