8" F/8 reflector. This scope has superb optics - main mirror is full thickness pyrex which was reputed to have been made by Cave around 30 years ago. The scope is a bit of a frankenstein but looks good and works well. Very good overall condition. Blue Sono-tube, low diffraction curved spider,quality 1.3" secondary, 2" RCF focuser with Borg helical adapter for precise focus control, Telrad, Starfinder EQ mount with Magellan II hand controller. Recently on a night of 8 out of 10 seeing, Saturn held detail very well right on through 650x ! and star images on either side of focus were almost indistinguishable. Available to front range Colorado only - I can't ship but will deliver within 100 miles. $600
