This is a rare 6" f4.8 Newtonian Dobsonian reflector hand-made and signed by the late & well-respected Phoenix astronomer & scope builder, Pierre Schwaar. Sadly, after making nearly 250 of his unique telescopes, Schwaar passed away. Unlike other reflectors, Schwaars are so tightly made, they are known for never needing mirror adjustments. Also features a unique rotating tube that allows the user to place the eyepiece wherever they like. This little scope provides spectacular wide field views and does very well on the planets too. It is a perfect quick look scope, first scope for that budding astronomer, or quality second scope for the seasoned amateur. I am including a Telrad finder, Celestron Ultima Barlow, 26mm and 7.5mm Celestron Plossls and a new copy of Sky Atlas 2000 for a truly complete package! This is truly a rare & special piece of work. Schwaar was one of the last old-fashioned telescope makers and his talent & skill will be missed. I am asking $550 for this great instrument and the accessories. Check or Money Order accepted. Buyer to pay shipping and insurance or I can deliver within 2hrs. of Waynesboro, PA. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
