Heavily used Meade 12.5" dob; this unit has many modifications:

Primary cell replaced with aluminum unit from University Optics
Inside of sonotube lined with black felt
2" Orion focuser
Turret base screws replaced with longer hardened sheet rock screws
Extra brackets added to inside of turret base for rigidity
Nylon altitude bearings replaced with Easy Sliders
Azimuth bearings replaced w/Easy Sliders and blank CD's at center bolt
Sonotube painted flat black

At one time this unit had a Dob Driver, but that has been removed. Unit was purchased from Meade in 12/1999 and has given many hours of fun. The picutres of Jupiter and Saturn posted on the Scopetronix website under "digital imaging tutorial" were taken with this dob. Smaller copies of the pics can be seen on the Tech2000 website; they make the Dob-Driver.

Due to the size of the sonotube, I will not ship this unit; it would have to go by truck. It must be picked up in the Atlanta, GA area, or I will drive within a reasonable distance to meet a serious buyer.


Thanks for looking!
