HI I am in search of a Meade 10" SCT OTA OR a Celestron 9.25" OTA in good shape. I have an 8" Compustar GOTO scope complete and working with minor cosmetic issues to trade. Either tube can have cosmetic issues. But like the 8" tube the optics must be in good shape. If interested respond with any questions. I don't need an Lx200, forks, a wedge or a tripod. Just a tube with or without finder. Losmandy dove tail plate would be nice but not required. Or if you have anything else that matches the value. Or sell outright for $900 + shipping. This is a Compustar from the late 80's A great goto mount with an 8" OTA. The tube is the original with Starbright coatings and has very good optics. The tripod is the heavy duty tripod with the beefier wedge for added stability. Comes with all the Compustar cables and electronics. It comes with a 1/4" visual back, a 25mm ep. Hard case for the fork mount and tube. As well as a desert storm cover(used)and manuals. It is also capable of linking with "The Sky" software version 4 or 5 for remote access with user supplied computer or laptop. This is alot of fun. Just point and click across the universe. A special made cable is included for this as well. This is a great setup for a small observatory and or groups/organizations. It has some minor wear from normal use. There is one leg clamp missing. There is a compustar fan page on the internet that is also a usersgroup. A lot of information is available through this site. I have had this mount and scope for several years and have enjoyed it immensly. See Pic. I am open to reasonable offers. More views are available if interested. I will split the tube from the mount. I like the tube and don't mind keeping it. The mount alone with electronics
and tripod $650, All reasonable offers considered. All I want is a TUBE! You get a cool toy! I get a CRUMMY ole' TUBE!
Thanx for looking
