Excellent condition 12.5-inch Cave Astrola, circa mid-70s. I don't
remember the inscription on the mirror but I believe it showed a
date of '76 and a focal length around 67 inches, making this roughly
an f/5.5 scope. Mirror needs recoating. Fibreglass tube in great condition, rotating rings, 2-inch rack and pinion focuser, adjustable counterweight on the tube (to accomodate the heavy 2-inch eyepieces we all love to use with scopes like this!). RtAsc clock drive and slow-motion dec drive with hand control. Original Cave Astrola german equatorial mount on pedastal with castors. This is not something I would want to ship, but I am willing (for $50) to drive up to 200 miles to deliver or meet someone. Shipping to west coast estimated to be about $400. e-Mail me for pictures. I'm selling because we moved recently and I have no observatory at new home for the four scopes that moved with me. I'm asking $1,500.
