Okay, this scope's exterior is "cosmetically challenged"--but it has a heart of gold:
--R. F. Royce re-figured mirror. Excellent, as is his reputation. . .
--Protostar Quartz diagonal (1.83)
--Protostar holder and three-vane spider.
--Protostar flocking paper opposite focuser.
--JMI NGF-1 1-1/4, 2" low-profile focuser.
--Heavy Dob base replaced with plywood rocker and ground board--lighter, easier to transport.
--Nifty Celestron altitude bearings and adjustable balance retained.
--Need eyepieces? I can throw in a couple of Plossls, too!
Price: $500. Local Bay Area sale only (for now).
