Hello, I am offering for your consideration a Meade 10" SCT optical tube assembly with some serious modifications for astrophotography. It is a fl 2500mm f10. The modifications include: The mounting of the primary mirror in a cell that is movable and colliminatable from the rear of the scope with three push/pull sets of screws (like a Newt), once locked down the mirror is solid as a rock and will not move; also attached to the rear of the scope is a VanSlyke Monster focuser (zero immage shift) so you can hang a long/heavy camera train in very solid fashion; on top of the scope is a G5 rail system to hold your guide scope; the bottom is fitted with a Losmandy dovetail rail; the interior of the scope has been fully baffled with five laser cut, metal baffels that progressivly follow the light path; the secondary mirror has Bob's Knobs installed for quick collimination after moving the primary. Also included with the optical tube is a metal dew shield with a set of matching baffle rings (not yet installed), a flexable dewshield (for insulation), and several slider tubes and adapters. I Also have a Meade f6.3 reducer, and a military shipping case (also included) that has not had foam fit inside for the scope yet. I am asking $1200 for everything plus shipping. If you can pick it up within around a 50 mile radius or so of Indianapolis I will take $1100. Thanks for looking.
