Here's everything you need to build your own 10" f/6
newtonian or dobsonian optical tube. 10" f/6 mirror
and cell came out of a late 70s Parks scope. Has been
modified with springs for the mirror cell to dampen
vibration and make collimation easier. Cell is skel
etonized for fast cool down. Secondary of proper size
in holder with traditional four vein spider in good
shape. Also a 3" computer fan for cooling the primary
and both 2" and 1.25" rack and pinion focusers. Mirror
coatings are in great shape. Secondary has a few very
fine scratches but gives nice images. The original
fiberglass tube had deteriorated over time and had a
few cracks etc. I just never got around to rebuilding
the scope. These optics were condsidered to be world
class in their day and are still considered so by
many today. These parts are being offered for less
than the cost of a new set of cheapo chineese mirror,
plywood cell, diagonal and holder from a source like
Orion. $650 plus shipping. I have good packing boxes
and materials for these parts but need to ship the
mirror separately for its safety, so it would come in
two boxes. Payment by MO or credit cards through
PayPal (+3%).
