For Sale: 4.5 inch homemade dob. Made by my son in a Telescope making class offered by our club, the Astronomical Society fo Kansas City. The class provided the components for each scope. My son did a good job, used the scope twice and put it in the closet. Has a 1.25 inch rack and pinion focuser. It has a Daisy red dot finder. The scope and all the eyepieces are in excellent shape and would make a great first scope, or travel scope. I don't know what the F ratio is. Included is the following:
An Orion eyepiece case, Large.
A Meade MA25mm 1.25" eyepiece.
A Celestron 17mm Plossl-1 1.25" eyepiece.
A Meade MA9mm 1.25" eyepiece.
An Orion 2x Barlow 1.25".
The whole setup can be had for $175, picked up in the Kansas City area. For an extra $25, I'll meet you anywhere within 150 miles of Kansas City.
