I purchased a Meade 16" Dob Starfinder for the optics, which I am putting into a custom Dob design. I am putting the rest of the scope up for sale. This would be perfect for someone who already owns a Meade Starfinder and would like to set up their scope at two locations and only have to drag the mirror around instead of the whole thing.
What I am offering is the tube+spider (still in its original box and bag), the bottom mirror board (but not the mirror cell), the Dob base (never assembled, still in its shipping container as I received it), and the focuser. I am keeping the primary mirror in its cell, the secondary mirror on its mount, the finder scope, and the eyepiece.
Should you want it I can also make the secondary available at a later date once I purchase a smaller one more suited to my custom design.
I'd like to get about $200 for these parts but the best offer takes it. I can ship to you by UPS or you can pick it up if you live nearby (I am on Long Island). Feel free to call with any questions (631-471-8845).
PLEASE NOTE: My mirror is f4.4, with a focal length of 70.8 inches. The center of the focuser hole is 6.0 inches below the top edge of the tube. If your mirror has a substantially different focal length you may have problems bringing it to focus in my tube. Be sure to check the position of your focuser and/or the focal length of your mirror (it is marked on the back).
