This is a Sky Designs Truss Dob with a 14.25" f/4.63 mirror. Very solid truss design with teflon on both axes, smooth steady motions, 2" helical focuser, telrad and homemade light shroud. Primary is center dotted and the coating has flaked off on less than maybe 5% of the surface - imperceptible to me visually and I would not recoat at this time.

Very nice deep sky views and I'm amazed at how well it does on planetary/lunar by virtue of aperture. Overall mirror box, mirror, truss tubes and upper cage weighs 60 pounds, rocker box and base weigh 25 pounds. Selling because I have a large classical cass that can double in newt mode and this one just doesn't get the use it should.

I'm asking $1200 plus shipping - less than half of a new Discovery 15" truss dob. Please feel free to e-mail with questions.
