Am selling my two year custom built dob. Heavy duty over size base and sliding tube ring construction. OTA is thin wall pvc, no spiral seams as with sonotube. The tube exterior is several coats of Krylon speckle paint. I built the mirror cell, spider and diag holder. I did purchase a plastic focuser which works quite well. This was my first mirror project, I used a stnd Pyrex blank, and had someone do the figuring for me. Optics are 1/10 wave and I have the documentation.

Az berings are formica and teflon, alt bearings are stainless rims with teflon also. Telrad not included but I will include a good 40mm plossl eyepiece.

My price is $375(US). Pickup would be great, I live near Wabash IN or I would drive up to 70 miles to meet. I will also ship UPS with buyer paying shipping cost. I'm selling to finance a new project.

Thanks for looking,
