Vintage Starliner 10" f/8.3 Optical Tube Assembly. Exceptional performance having provided me with some of the best planetary views I have seen. This scope in the past was used by a well know eyepiece maker to test his eyepieces. All original componants except I recently placed a ProtoStar 1.83" quartz secodary mirror and a Astrosystems secondary mount and spider. The new spider vanes have a smaller profile than the original spider. Original spider and secondary mirror provided as well. 8x50mm finder, 1.25" focuser. Tube is made of fiberglass.The scope weighs about 45lbs and is over 80" in length. Original Starliner tube rings. Not many of these around. $1250 and would need to be picked up or I could meet you within 100miles of Hartford, CT. If you can tell me how I could ship it I would be willing to do so. In view of the size UPS, FEDEX, and Post Office are not possible. Although I would like the funds to put towards another project I would entertain some possble trades or partial trades. For size comparison there is a robust 80mm f/12 refractor in the photo. Photo does not show rings.
