I built this scope about 9 months ago as a project for a member of our club who ended up buying someting else. I need to recoup my costs. Birch plywood construction. Easy truss set-up, cell collimates from the eyepiece. Includes JMI focuser, Telrad, 26 mm PL, and 8x50 finder. Mount is ready for encoders (encoders not included). Exquisite Swayze mirror with Spectrum coating, 3.1 diagonal.
The scope weighs 114 lb. total. Some approximate dimensions & weights:
Mirror box = 19"x19"x12", 58 lb. with 14.5" radius altitude bearings attached.
Rocker box = 22"x22"x16.5", 38 lb.
Upper cage = 21.5" diam. x 15.5" tall
Stout ground table legs have a 15" radius.
55" truss tubes add 9 lb.
Assembled tube is 80" long.
Eyepiece is 79" up at zenith.
Asking $3000. I will meet/deliver within 300 miles of Bakersfield, CA. I cannot ship this scope.
Thanks for looking,
