Hello...I purchased this scope minus the optics from a fellow Astromarter and local astronomy club member who moved the mirrors into a truss setup. In Jan. '03, I purchased new optics from Discovery (have paperwork)and have been more than pleased with its performance. Views of Saturn and Mars have been outstanding. I've finished construction of a new observatory and just recently purchased a 12" LX200 for permanent housing. Reluctantly, the dob must be sold to pay for its expense. The PDHQ is in excellent condition so the price is $1075 and includes the following:

2" JMI DX3 focuser w/1.25 adapter
Telrad w/base
Teflon bearings
Primary mirror stray light blocker
Upgraded baseboard and feet
Flocked tube
Tube extension stray light blocker
Push/pull handle
Secondary prewired for dew heater

This scope has proved to be an outstanding performer. The optics have not been touched since installation. I am reluctant to box it up for shipping, so I'm looking for a buyer to meet within a 2 hour drive from Philadelphia...Thanks...John
