I have a Juno 15 (really 14.5) with tracking table and DSC for $4000. A 14.5" Starmaster without the tracking and DSC is $4600! A Starmaster with tracking and DSC is $7400! You save $3400. The only difference in the DSC is mine does not have Go To, and Starmaster does, but this is minor, especially to save $3400! This scope was the brainchild of Jupiter Telescope Co., who wanted to give the amateur the perfect telescope to drive Celestron and Meade out of business. He was ahead of his time and paid the usual price. It has a gorgeous blue finish; hand-made optics by a famous, eccentric mirror maker; a tracking table; and a DSC by Sky Comm with built-in encoders (not Go To). He wanted to design the best built, most convenient scope possible, and did. He hated the overpriced refractors and SCs, so he created this work of art (it is, too). It does not squeak and does not have the hundred mechanical flaws that mass-produced scopes have. I have put a few dents in it. I also have Nagler Type II and wide-field eyepieces and other comfort items for sale. For instance, included with the scope will be a cover that goes from the top to the ground; I also have a hand made truss light-blocker; by the way, it is a truss!
Folks, I have gotten five hits in thirty minutes; excuse my inexperience, I realize now I have to have a picture, which will take a few days. I don't know how to load the picture up onto the site once I get them made, I may have to email it to you via scanning (you can tell I am a computer genius) if I can't figure it out. This is not a $1300 Dob made in someone's basement. It is luxury and quality. Terms are easy. Payment can be check with a waiting period, cashier's check or money order; shipping is negotiable.
