Older style Discovery dob with 1.25" focuser, OTA dust cover, and moveable bearings to balance OTA in base. Has 8" f/6 plate glass mirror. I replaced the Discovery secondary with a Meade Research Grade 1/10 wave 1.52" secondary and I have a Japanese 6x30 finderscope with 0.965" eyepiece (much nicer optical quality but a little grungy on the finish) on it. The tube has a few small tears in the outer covering where a Telrad was previously mounted (not included), otherwise the optics are excellent and the mechanics are excellent. Movements are smooth and laminated base is very solid - also has handles on both sides for easier lifting. Total weight is about 40 pounds.

New is $449 + shipping, sale pending. Please feel free to e-mail with questions.
