Planetary and deep sky views are both fabulous with this instrument. The components are:
14" f/5 pegasus mirror (2" thick) with specs from Jon Hall: worst case strehl .992, worst case PV error 1/17. (He gives the average PV error as 1/136, and the strehl as .999!)
2.6" secondary with holder and 3-vane spider. The spider is homebuilt, very lightweight and sturdy with minimal diffraction--the secondary is easy to collimate.
The mirror and the secondary need re-coating, although they are still serviceable: Clausing will recoat (in beral) the primary for $90, and the secondary for $25, plus shipping. I could also ship the mirrors to Clausing and have him ship them to you.
The 2" focuser is a homemade crayford, very usable at 300X.
9-point free-floating cell is based on a 1/4" triangular aluminum plate, center drilled for ventilation; it holds collimation very well.
I will ship the above components, along with the altitude bearings, but I will not ship the entire scope, nor the rocker box. This is because the optical tube does not dissassemble. It consists of 6 1" OD heavy-walled aluminum tubes held by aluminum rings at the bottom and a plywood ring at the secondary. If you want the whole thing, you'll have to come to the SF bay area, or within say a 100 mile radius of Petaluma. The OTA weighs about 75 lbs., and the rocker base about 30 lbs.
A sacrifice at $1280 plus shipping. Consider that a new 12.5" mirror from Pegasus is $1250, while a 14.5" is $1500.
I'm selling this great scope because I built a 16" ultralight with Swayze optics.
