Very good condition 10" Dob with outstanding optics. Includes everything shown. Base, OTA, 6 x 30 finder, spring tensioners, and a junk 8mm Plossl that I use as a dust cap for the focuser. The main tube dust cap is also included and the manual as well as the alignment tool (small EP with tiny hole and foil inside for precise Newtonian alignments) that goes in the focuser.

The optics are superb IMHO and I am only selling this due to back problems with advancing age. I just don't use this anymore as I can't lift is as easily as I could. I am selling this and a Skywatcher 120ED refractor to fund a downgraded Skywatcher 100 ED that I can use with an EQ-2 mount, the whole system will be much lighter than either of these, and I can get out under the stars way more often.

The Saturn photo was taken with this OTA mounted on a Meade LDX-55 mount (not included). If you'd also like the rings for that I can include them for $45 additional, then you have what I had - a convertible OTA suitable for either a Dob or German EQ with drive. Only the Dob mount is included, not the LXD-55. Pickup only and feel free to come by and test it yourself. It will not disappoint. Even the Chinese accidentally make a superb optic now and then, this is one of them. Sorry, the price is firm, I don't like haggling so I priced this at the lowest I can bear to sell it at.
