In very good shape, with handmade (and quite strong) wooden
rocker box. Several upgrades.
Cooling fans below mirror
Tension adjustment system for bearings (a la Orion)
- not perfect, but very helpful
Views are quite good, though I can't speak to actual optical quality
- that is, I have not performed optical tests on it
Why sell? Well, I purchased it in December and it's just too large
for my uses. I mean, it *is* a beast.
Pick up near Pittsburgh, PA. It is not shippable.
$1050. I'll throw in a large RA finderscope for another $50.
