14.5" Dobson/Newtonian Truss design, manufactured by Juno Telescopes in Florida with a Richard Fagan full thickness mirror. The full thickness mirror holds the collimation and figure extremely well. A Tectron 2" focuser is included. The primary mirror comes in its own wooden box that transfers nicely to the rocker box's bottom. The azimuth bearing is Teflon on laminated plastic with the center pivot bushings are of brass and low friction nylon. The rocker box is 21 1/2" by 21 1/2" by 20" high. The truss tubes are tubular aluminum which store in their own round plastic tube. The altitude trunion is a full circular 14" diameter wood with laminated plastic bearing surface on Teflon. The rocker also has two opposing large 1/2" diameter nylon screws to act as the friction brake for the weight of large eyepieces. The secondary cage is of wood and the spider is 4 vane. The secondary mirror is 3" in diameter on its minor axis. A detailed clear laminated manual is included. I am asking $1900 for this nice scope plus shipping or if you pick it up I will discount $200.
Also, the 4000 step encoders with their mounts set up on this scope. I am asking $95 for these.
The Sky Commander module then connects into these encoders. The Sky Commander is $190.
