recently placed this ad but decided to go ahead and try to finish my scope. Alas, I just don't think it was meant to be. Here is a list of what I'm selling:
20" BVC mirror blank pre-generated to f/5 and groung through 12 micron.
18" ceramic tile on plaster grinding tool.
custom welded 18 point mirror cell.
25, 12, and 5 micron Micro-Grit abrasives (about 3 lbs each).
8 split block pole sockets.
8 not-yet-cut 1.25' aluminum truss poles (about 8 ft each).
Secondary cage with spider and secondary mirror(shown below).
Secondary mirror dew heater.
upper truss tube clamps (from Obsession.
2" JMI DX-2 focuser.
To make this a complete scope you would need to finish grinding and polishing the mirror, get it coated, and build the mirror and rocker boxes. I'm asking for $1100 for the above, but I am flexible on the price.
E-mail me if you would like more info/pictures. This would be a great kit for an astonomy club!!!
