Meade DS-16 16” f/4.5 equatorial reflector on the large Starfinder German Equatorial Mount. OTA has an all metal 2” focuser with 1.25” adapter, telrad, Meade 70mm finderscope w/1.25” focuser, OTA cap, and rotating rings. Optics are dusty but fine. Sonotube has some scratches but only cosmetic stuff – mechanically it is excellent. Mount has AC powered RA drive, DC powered Dec tangent arm w/motor, JMI Mototrak V that can handle both drives and a motofocus, DSCs w/Magellan computer, rolling casters w/leveling handscrews and lots of weights. Some rust on the back end of the RA shaft is cosmetic and there is paint flaking off of the pebble finish on the eq head. In very good condition and very solid.
Get into big aperture on the cheap! Asking only $1500 + shipping. I will favor a sale to someone who is willing to pick up – it must weigh around 250 pounds if you add everything up. I will also consider selling the optics for $750 + shipping and the mount for $750 + shipping if I get concurrent offers. Please feel free to e-mail with questions.
