This is one of the older/ very good condition; Meade Newts with a nice criterion mount and single axis drive. The focuser is a metal/ smooth 1.25 rack and pinion.The Tube does not look like cheasy cardbord like the new ones....nice and smooth gelcoat. At F6 you don't have collimation problems, and the 8" size is still manageable given the F6 focal length. It has a Pyrex mirror in a sturdy cell that cools down better than a plate glass mirror. The rig is quite portable given its capability, and can handel the higher powers better than a Dob as it is on a sturdy Criterion GEM mount. Mars with a 7mm orthos looked pretty good,but also at higher powers.... as well as the usual D.S.O. stuff. I will sell the Tube without mount, but not the mount alone. "Asking" $625 for both; $325 for O.T.A and nice rings.(plus shipping)...... Mike
