Like new condition! I puchased this from the original owner who lives a few miles from me a couple of weeks ago. He's owned it for 3 years and had never fully assembled it, so it is in perfect condition. This is the EL (Easy and Light) series which has the truss poles fixed to the aecondary cage, allowing quick assembly along with the ability to hold collimation longer. To assemble, you place the secondary assembly on the mirror box and adjust 4 hand screws. Takes less than a minute. Includes:
-10" Zambuto primary w/ .987 Strehl
-Secondary Nylon cover from Pacific Design (I just purchased and never used)
-Full Scope Cover from Pacific Desing (just purchased/unused)
-2" JMI crayford focuser
-Black Lycra shroud
-Oak covers for mirror box and secondary assembly
-Nylon cover for upper tube assembly
-CZ optical report on mirror
Includes hardware to mount DSCs, but does not include DSCs or encoders.
Why am I selling? Simple. The first night I got this out, I pointed the scope at M51 (the Whirlpool) and could see spiral structure from my suburban skies that I've never seen through a 10" before. The next day I ordered a Starmaster 12.5 ELT. I am now a believer in Carl Zambuto's fine mirrors!
