This is an 8”, f-65. reflector on a sturdy, pier type, equatorial mount that has a 110 volt, AC, polar axis drive. It has a Meade 30mm finder, a rack and pinion eyepiece holder, and a 25 mm Kelner eyepiece. Also included is a camera mount that fits my Nikon.

I built most of this scope myself, including grinding the parabolic mirror to within ¼ wave. I have enjoyed using the scope since the late 1960s to observe from my patio. The trees have now grown too much to allow continued observing, thus I have bought a smaller and more portable scope.

In 1996 the mirror and diagonal were stripped and coated by QSP Optical. The mirror now has a few scratches from cleaning; however they do not appear to affect the performance. The Double-Double in Lyra is easily split and star defraction patterns are circular inside and outside of focus.

Although this scope is easily disassembled, it is still too heavy to ship. The buyer will have to pick it up, or make arrangements with a shipper. I will deliver the scope within a 50 mile radius of Kansas City for up to $25.00.

Please email me with and offers or questions. I have a number of pictures I can send. I could not get them added to this sale notice.
