Due to that I sold my house recently and now live in an upstairs apartment, I am selling my beloved 16" Truss Dob that is built by Night Sky Scopes. I don't have the storage space and it is too large and heavy to get into my upstairs apartment, so I need to get something more portable. Here are the specs on the scope:

-16" F4.5 Meade Primary mirror that is excellent and gives VERY sharp views!
-1828mm focal length
-3.1" Secondary mirror with Endurobright coatings
-JMI DX-1, 2" dual speed Crayford focuser (very smooth!) with 1.25" adapter
-Brand New Sky Commander DSC's and encoders (very accurate!)
-Telrad finder
-Astrosystems 4 vane ultra-thin spider
-Secondary mirror and dew heater built into mirror holder
-Full electrical package w/ 7ah gel cell battery and can be upgraded to 14ah if adding a second battery.
-Battery charger
-Awesome Night Sky scopes primary mirror cell (very stable)
-2 extra large coolings fans for quick cooling of the primary
-Light shroud
-Beautifully finished all-Oak construction
-Wheelbarrow handles and wheels
-Ramps for easily getting it into or out of your vehicle
-And more...

I wish I could keep this wonderful scope, but being that I don't have the space to store it anymore... its got to go so I can get something more portable. This scope is truly like brand new. It has only been used about 6 or 7 times. This similar setup if ordered from Night Sky Scopes right now would cost about $4600 and a 6 month wait. I'm looking to get around $3250.00 or best offer for this beautiful scope. I would prefer a local sale in the NJ/NY/PA area, as I don't want to ship this scope and risk it getting damaged (We've all heard the horror stories with UPS!). Any interested folks, please make sure to email me. Thank you for your time and have a great day!

Clear skies,
Tony Rousos
