Machinist-built custom 8" Dobsonian Reflector telescope for sale.

I have made this telescope myself and it represents countless hours in the machine shop.

Every component, except optics, are precision-machined anodized aluminum. Mirror holder assembly is very rigid and remains in perfect alignment. Telescope body is made from 10" x .125 aluminum pipe.It is a very solid scope and will last for many, many years.

This scope must be seen to be appreciated.

Primary mirror is a 8" Orion f/6 parabolic Pyrex mirror of the highest reflectivity offered by Orion. Secondary mirror is of the same grade. 2" Eyepiece holder also holds 1.25" eyepieces with an included machined adapter. All optics are in mint condition.

Included eyepieces:

Sirius #08739 6.3mm Plossl
Sirius #08726 12.5mm Plossl
Sirius #08490 50mm Plossl (Awesome wide view)

Base is painted wood with a ball-bearing turntable.

For more photos, please contact me and I will send you an email containing links to 8 more angles, including closeups.

First $1000.00 takes all.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this telescope. Thanks
