I ran this ad a month or so ago as a for sale and had some interest. I will do a trade on something interesting of equal value. This was made in 1943 for the Latvian ambassador. It is an excellent condition and has been restored with new powder coat paint job and fresh Spectrum coatings on the mirrors. Heavily machined and beautiful rings and focuser. It is an F16 Cass or an F4 Newtonian. It is a very well designed and built instrument, and has excellent optics done by J. Freydman, a French optician working in Geneva during WW2. It has a 3" finder and rings, also beautifully done. The picture makes the rings look tarnished but they are a bright polished metal. Call or email for more info...405-329-0161. $2850 + shipping. Reason for selling is I have a C14 and no mount for this Cassegrain so it just sits unused...It really needs to be pointed at Mars!!
