Custom LOMO 95mm (3.75 inch) clear aperture f/12.5 Maksutov-Cassegrain with micrometer focusing, 1.25-inch format mirror star diagonal, removable metal dew cap, screw-on metal dust cover. Accepts standard threaded SCT accessories. Excellent optics, baffling, and overall mechanical quality. This rugged OTA rides on a modified Celestron CG-5 mount with dual-axis stepper motor drives and a polar telescopic sight - the same mounting that is used to support 6-inch f/8 refractors! The mounting has been carefully disassembled, cleaned, and re-lubricated for superb performance, with custom large knurled control knobs added. The original flimsy Chinese aluminum tripod has been replaced with an ultra-stable TAL wooden tripod that collapses to a height of 31 inches and extends to a height of 60 inches. The entire instrument is steady as a rock, yet breaks down easily into three lightweight subassemblies for transport. The current replacement cost of this “poor man’s Questar” exceeds $1,000. In superb condition throughout, this instrument is priced for a quick sale at $550.00 FOB Ohio – less than the cost of the replacement mount and tripod alone! Contact Tom Dobbins by phone at 740-622-0755 (work) or 740-392-8592 (home).
