If not, this may help:

A Royce 8" F/8 mirror is the heart of this great little scope which was assembled by the original owner to provide high level planetary performance:

-Gloss white powder-coated aluminum tube, lined with Protostar Flocked Paper (no dents or dings)

-8" f/8 R.F. Royce primary with one year old Beral Coating

-1.52" Protostar Quartz secondary

-Protostar 3-Vane Spider ( I compared the images of Jupiter and Saturn to my old Coast Instrument 8" w/ a four vane spider and the difference-less noticible diffraction- is quite obvious)

-University Optics Open Aluminum mirror cell into which the mirror has been mounted with silicone

-Dual readout digital thermometer that tracks the outside temp. and temp. of the mirror, letting you know when the primary has reached thermal equilibrium. This feature actually drives me nuts.

-JMI RCF 2" focuser with Motofocus & hand controller (batteries included!)

-Telerad Mount (may include Telerad as well!)

$750 (plus shipping costs) takes the tube assembly (a brand new 8" f/8 Royce mirror is $695 alone!).

Or if you prefer:

8" F/8 Royce mirror in UO adjustable aluminum cell $ 575 (list $728 [$695 + $33] plus the attendant waiting period)

JMI RCF 2" Focuser with Motofocus- $125 m(list $209)

Protostar 3-vane spider with quartz 1.52" secondary - $100 ( purchase with primary mirror and cell for $75) (list $198)

9" aluminum tube just over 6' in length- $80 plus shipping
