1993 Thomas A. Dobbins Maksutov-Cassegrain: Russian optics, U.S. fabrication
Nexstar 5/8 drivebase, including original manual and black aluminum 12" mounting bar. Works well. (Tripod and Tak dovetail plate & bar in photo not included.) $400 + shipping + insurance.
Reasons for selling: bought new (to me) APO refractor (this scope is virtually identical in optical quality, but does not go as low in magnification as the short FL refractor), and it is too long to go on Nexstar drive base (sigh!).
Complete system -- We can discuss....
Thanks for looking -- Michael
