This is Professor Plum, my homemade 8" f/7 dob. The mirror (plate glass) was ground by me at the Chabot Telescope Makers Workshop a few years ago. It tested a hair below 1/8 wave. It includes a Novak mirror cell, a Protostar 4 vane spider and 1.32" Protostar secondary, and JSL 2" focuser w/ 1.25" insert. The tube is sonotube with many coats of spray paint. The base is made of Oak plywood and 2 coats of stain and 2 coats of varathane. Ebony star on teflon in both axis. A telrad is included. I hate to part with this, but I just bought a 10" dob and don't really have room to store both.

$300 and you must pick it up in the Oakland/Bay Area.
