This is a very nice 1997 vintage Meade OTA in Excellent condition with special coatings. Optics have not been cleaned and planetary resolution is very satisfactory with minimal image shift. Shorten your exposure times with the optimal F6.3 focal ratio. With a telecompressor, you can get F4. This scope has seen very little use. I am selling mainly to close out my 1999 business inventory list. Please be prompt as I need to sell before the end of the year. CA buyers will have to pay sales tax of 7.75%, but this is counterbalanced by the option of picking up the scope at my home in the San Bernardino area, eliminating any shipping cost. Local sales are strongly preferred due to the danger inherent in shipping such an instrument.
Asking price for the combination of the 10" SCT OTA, attached Losmandy plate, Telrad, and 2" Meade mirror diagonal is $900. Will haggle, so make me an offer. Please telephone me at 909-425-5300 and leave a message including your name and number so that I can reply. My work phone is 909-580-0059 which is worth a try during business hours.
