Another project that I had hoped to get to…..

I have a 17.5” Coulter Odyssey II for sale. At least it is mostly one. Original tube repainted and the original rocker box but with a new material on the base board and side bearings. The new material used (some sort of vinyl or plastic) doesn’t work to well and will have to be re-done. The focuser is a JMI NGF 2” which is damaged but still works. That also will have to be rebuilt by JMI or replaced. The secondary mirror is the original 4.25” ma and is as mounted by Coulter. The primary mirror is mounted in a sling on 18 points that is fitted to the original round backboard that Coulter used. The mirror is refigured by Galaxy with the following caveat. When it was refigured, it was found to have a severely turned edge. The time and money involved to correct this flaw seemed prohibitive and so the mirror is now masked. The diameter of the full mirror is somewhat more than 17.75” and when it is masked the clear aperture is somewhat less than 17.25”. The coatings are good and the optical performance of the scope is excellent.

$1500.00 OBO. Local pickup only. I will consider parting it out.

Thanks for looking,
