30 inch F/5 Obsession. Delivered by Dave in April of ’93. I’ve traveled a lot with this scope and done dozens of public star parties with it, so it has some battle scars but it is in good shape.
The primary optic was delivered by Yuri Petrunin (now of TEC) in about 1990 or ‘91 and is Sital, 1-to-8 thickness ratio with 19 holes core drilled for weight relief. It is mounted on 18 points. Outstanding figure – best mirror over 25” I’ve ever seen. AND it is desperately in need of a new coating. Secondary flat is 4.25” ma.
Comes with wheel barrow handles, JMI NGF focuser, light shroud, Telrad, NGC-Max, a set of thread on counter weights for the UTA (this mirror is heavy) and a full scope cover made of a Gortex clone material.
I prefer a local pickup in the central mountains of Colorado but can deliver for the cost of expenses. Upon replying by email with your offer or questions, your message will likely be bounced by my Spam filters with instructions for resubmitting. Sorry.
This is your chance to own one of the best 30” mirrors anywhere. Current value of the optics is $15,000.00 +. Obsession no longer offers 30” scopes but if they did, this package with these optics would probably be about $20,000.00. I will consider offers at $12,000 and above. Thanks for checking my ad.
