I built this scope for a club member who backed out on me. I need to recoup my costs.

Birch plywood construction. Easy truss set-up. Mirror cell collimates from the eyepiece. Includes JMI focuser, Telrad, 26 mm PL eyepiece, and 8x50 finder. Mount is ready for encoders (encoders not included). Exquisite f/4.9 Swayze mirror with Spectrum coating, 3.1 diagonal.

The scope weighs 114 lb. total. Some approximate dimensions and weights:

Mirror box = 19"x19"x12", 58 lb with 14.5" radius altitude bearings attached (bearings are easily removed for transport).
Rocker box = 22"x22"x16.5", 38 lb.
Upper cage = 21.5" diameter x 15.5" tall, 9 lb.
Stout ground table legs have a 15" radius.
55" truss tubes add 9 lb.
Assembled tube is 80" long.
Eyepiece is 79" up at zenith.
For scale, my wife is 64" tall (wife not included).

Asking $2700 or make offer. I will meet/deliver within 300 miles of Bakersfield, CA. I will not ship this scope.
