I suppose it is a long shot, but I am looking for a good deal on a 8-inch, 9.25-inch, or 10-inch OTA. I need good optics, but I am looking for a used scope and am not concerned with appearance. My main need is for the OTA, as I intend to mount it as an alternate scope on my LXD-55 mount. The ten inch scope gives good views, but it is fairly short focal length and doesn't barlow well. So I need a longer focal length scope and I have been missing my C-8. Having said that, I would possibly be interested in a complete set up with the fork, wedge, and tripod, so I can have an alternate setup for it when I am using the LXD OTA, but to be honest, a CG5/GP/GPDX dovetail has more value for me. I definitely need a visual back, but the other accessories are just nice to have. I don't need the fastar compatible tube, but wouldn't reject one either. I will be honest and let you know that my budget is $300 to $500 with the emphasis on the $300 side.

SO if you have an orphan SCT that needs a new home with lots of use, let me know. I do have a C102 and an ST-80 along with some other odds and ends that might be possible partial trades, but lets talk about that later in person.

Thanks for reading this,

Paul McCarl
