<SOLD>
Local SF Bay Area sale only!

Please see pic below.

Most of the guts came from a Parks 10" scope: Full-thickness primary, Novak cell and secondary holder/spider. I put these in an aluminum tube (1/16" thick). The tube is lined with 1/8" cork, flocked with Protostar paper opposite the focuser, and baffled. Other niceties:

--Aluminum tube sanded to #220 and waxed.
--JMI 2"/1-1/4" focuser.
--Removable (four bolts)alt bearings: Losmandy dovetail enables this OTA (45lbs) to be used for imaging on a G11 mount--back focus holes already drilled!
--Parks dust covers.
--11-ply 3/4" thick Apple Ply used throughout.
--Teflon, Ebony Star, stainless steel fittings used throughout.
--Parallax Tube rings and Losmandy Dovetail.
--Encoders would be easy to install.
--Front of AL tube is rolled (stronger!).

Only: $750. Bay Area only, please!
<SOLD>
