I have totally rebuilt this Dob. The optics are excellent however the primary could use a cleaning. Galaxies take on some detail (dust lanes in M51) and Globulars are excellent. Very light primary (Pyrex), Nova Optical 2.6" secondary (1/10th wave). 1.25" JMI NGF Mini 2 Crayford focuser. Novak secondary holder. University Optics primary cell. Telrad and 60mm RA finder. You could either use this scope as is, or build the optics into a truss design or what ever.
I also have a set of Meade 4000 series plossls for sale if interested. Still new in sealed plastic w/ bolt cases. Full set minus 26mm.
I'm looking for a bigger mirror. If you wanna trade all towards a 16-20" scope plus maybe some cash, let me know.
I may also be interested in optics alone.
Looking for a local pickup. Too large to ship. If interested in purchasing everything minus the tube and rocker box, to make your own design, I would sell everything (mirrors, focuser, finders, cell's and spider) for a good offer.
You can also make me an offer for the eyepieces (as a set).
