This is a Meade made pyrex mirror that came from a Starfinder Equatorial Telescope. It is about 10 years old. The coatings are still in good condition. There are no significant scratches, however, there are hairline scratches from cleanings over the years but they would not affect the image at the eyepiece.

This past summer I had it at a star party next to a newer discovery dob 10" and the images from my scope was just as bright as his on DSOs - so the coatings couldn't be too bad.

I've never done any critical star testing but images are stunning when the atmosphere is good. Images from this mirror of the Shoemaker-Levy impact craters on Jupiter are still vivid in my memory.

Price is $200 including shipping in CONUS.

It will be properly packed and shipped.

I can take paypal, money order, or check.

The picture below was taken with a halogen light shining at a low angle to the mirror to accentuate any imperfections.
