For three years now I have been collecting the parts I need to build a 17.5" truss style dob. Due to another job transfer and the associated changes in living arrangements, I need to let it all go. Here goes,
-Coulter primary (refigured by Swayze last fall. Steve says 1/8 to 1/10 wave or so,"beautiful!" Coated by L&L, 92% aluminized)
-Astrosystems 3.1" 96% secondary
-Astrosystems spider with heated diagonal holder.
-Moonlight 2" single rate Crayford focuser.
-Sky Commander DSC with encoders and hardware
-Completed secondary cage. Baltic Birch/Kydex with Obsession upper truss clamps
-Aircraft grade 1.25" aluminum truss (probably pick-up or deliver only)
-Welded/painted 18 point mirror cell with bars and triangles.
-Obsession cast aluminum altitude bearings.
-2 fans with 2 sealed gell cell batteries and charging/switch panel.
-Astrosystems alt/az teflon bearing kits with pre-drilled az bolt.
-Maple lower truss blocks roughed out (not drilled or routed).
-High density pipe insulation for trusses.
-Most of a roll of Ebony star, more than enough to finish it.
This is pretty much all one would need to build a very nice dob, less a few nuts and bolts. If we can arrange pick-up and/or delivery I even have a full sheet of 3/4" baltic birch and partial sheets of 1/2" and 1/4" that I'll throw in. I don't want to think about what I spent on all this over the years but I'm asking $2000, paypal plus 3%, cashiers check, etc.
I can deliver within a few hundred miles of the DC area.
Thanks' for looking.
