OK let me try this again. This has been a great scope for a long time but I need to sell this to help pay for my current telescope-building project. I have more pictures for anybody who's interested, of whatever aspect of this you want to check out closer and I'll answer any questions about the particulars, I've had this a long time and know it pretty well. Primary has a couple of light scuffs that could probably be cured with a re-coating, and there is a slight turned edge (though I thought it was perfect for years before I knew how to star test). Deep-sky is great, have hunted very faint Abell clusters and excellent detail can be seen on Jupiter by masking the edge (you can go off-axis to 5-6" unobstructed too with nice results but somewhat lower resolution), nice circular black transit shadows, little white ovals within the cloud belts, etc. This scope is very portable for its size and probably the biggest thing aperture-wise you can get and still be able to easily get around & in and out of a regular car. May be interested in partial trades involving a portable maksutov-cassegrain (3.5-5" or thereabouts) or even a small SCT. If you want to trade off a vehicle that can transport the 7'4"-long scope I'm building now I'd like to hear from you. Otherwise will sell for $1350 straight-sale to someone reasonably local, I can meet you within say 250 miles of Twin Cities metro or so. Otherwise I'll sell the optics for $850+shipping to whoever wants them.
