I am the second owner of this 16” Dobsonian scope. See photo below. It was made by a skilled craftsman and machinist in Charleston, SC. It needs some TLC, but as it sits, it is a great light bucket that works just fine. The 16” mirror sits on a nine point cell and was recoated two years ago by Howard Clausing in Skokie Illinois but now has a few spots on it. The 4.25” secondary appears to be perfect. Two of the eight truss blocks on the mirror box have cracks in the wood and one of the truss poles has cracked (from repeated set-up ad take-down) on the end where it connects to the secondary cage. Both items could be replaced by a skilled tinkerer. I can send anyone interested more photos. It has a Rigel finder, wheel barrow handles, and 2” to 1.25 “ adapter. A nice project and potentially great deal for the right person. Please call or write if you have any questions. Thanks for reading...clear skies!
