In the next few weeks, I'm going to be looking for a dob in the 14" to 20" range. My primary concerns are:
The mirror should have a good figure and be excellent for high power planetary viewing.
I don't care who made it, it can be amateur or professional as long as the overall finish is nice.
I would be nice not to have to use anything more than a three step ladder to reach the eyepiece.
I prefer not to spend more than $2,000 but I can spend as much as $2,500 for the right scope.
I can drive up to 10 hours from Louisville KY to pickup or meet. Other than the scope, I only need a finder scope. Eyepieces, drives, DSC's, and other stuff are not needed.
Please e-mail me if you have something to sell.
