Small scope needs a good home, perhaps as a finder on a large dob?
Too many scopes, too little time so this beauty must go to raise funds for a large mirror. Very nice 4.25” f/4.65 OTA. The OTA is 25.75 inches long and weighs 4.5 pounds. Previous mirror owner says the mirror was made by Mike Spooner. I can't verify that but it does perform well. The primary mirror cell is a modified Coulter. The spider is from a Coulter kit from the early '80s. The secondary mirror is of unknown lineage but is certainly okay for low power RFT use. I haven't had the magnification up too high on this OTA since I used it hand held while seated.
The tube is beautiful oak veneer (hours of hand sanding with wet/dry sand paper!) over a metal base. There is one extra hole in the tube. The focuser is a 1.25” delrin helical unit from MoonLite. Detailed pics available via e-mail if anyone is interested.
Asking $160.00USD and I'll pay for packing and USPS ground shipping.
Prefer money order. PayPal accepted. Personal check is okay but must clear before shipping.
Thanks for looking!
