I have one project too many at the moment and just do not see myself getting to this one anytime soon. Out of nostalgia for a 10" Cave I had over twenty years ago I picked up the following: A Cave 10" F/5 described as a Model "C" Delux which included the original fiberglas tube (W/Cave nameplate), 2" focuser w/1.25 adapter, 8x50 finder and rings, original mirror mount (missing one of the three clips) and mirror (MIRROR INSCRIPTION; Cave Astrola - M-794110 - F5 -50 1/8"F.L. - Dec -26-1979)

I then purchased another 10" F/5 Cave mirror with matching 2.14" Cave diagonal w/Novak diagonal holder and a University Optics aluminum mirror cell. This mirror has a FL of 50.17 and is inscribed on the side ("March 1976") and has the original coating sticker on back.

To complete the project one needs a Novak spider and an equatorial or DOB mount. One could then sell the "spare" mirror.

All of the above shipped in CONUS for $950 (which is what I have into it at this point).
