Last sale fell through, so, I've made some upgrades and reduced the price. 8" F5 Royce primary and Antares, 1/15 wave secondary provide images that are pin sharp and contrasty. The faster focal ratio gives larger fields of view, yet the mirror will easily handle magnifications of 50x per inch or more, seeing conditions permitting.

The scope is made predominately from walnut and birch hardwood and nicely finished with three coats of polyurethane varnish. The insides of the tube rings are lined with leather and loosening the toggle clamps lets the OTA rotate for eyepiece position and slide up and down for balance. The OTA is lined with premium black velvet at the top and is fully baffled with 8 baffles below the focuser.

The two inch crayford style focuser is all ballbearing and the two inch knobs provide fine focus control. A nylon screw provides braking action with heavier eyepieces. 1.25" adapter is included.

A beautiful telescope you can enjoy looking at on cloudy nights as much as you enjoy looking through when the skies are clear. Price is $1400 and I'll pay shipping.
