Hello, I have a Meade 10" SCT that has been modified/upgraded for serious astro-photography. Modifications include: The primary mirror is mounted in a cell that is movable and colliminatable via three push-pull screw systems in the rear of the scope (rock solid lock-up); a VanSlyke monster focuser is attached to the rear for positive/solid zero image shift focusing for the heaviest of camera trains; the scope interior has been fitted with five laser-cut metal baffles that follow the progressive light path, for superior contrast (I have a matching set of baffles to install in a Meade aluminium dew shield included with the deal); there is a G5 rail system on the top of the scope for your guide scope; Losmandy dovetail system on the bottom; Bob's knobs on the secondary for quick allignment after movement. I have a hard military shipping case to go with it that I have not fit foam in yet. I have various sliding tubes/adapters that will go along with it. I have the Meade dew shield w/ loose baffles. I also have a foam dew shield for insulation. And I have a "What in the world" focus front for quick collimination after movement of the primary. Maybe a few other trinkets... I would like $1100 for the OTA. PLEASE NOTE: I really need a local sale, due to poor health. Or, if someone could arange the packing/shipping that would work also. I might be able to get help from my family, however, that will result in a delayed shippment (I don't know when as they don't live that close to me). I also have a CI-700 mount I will list under mmounts. Thanks for looking, Tim
