Financial considerations and limited time to observe at dark sky sites pressure me to sell my beloved 12.5 homemade truss dob. It has a 12.5" f5 Parks primary and a Discovery 2.14" secondary. Together they provide wonderful views. Lightweight and very portable for a 12.5" scope. Setup and takedown very quick--faster than a regular truss design.

I am asking $1000, and I will drive up to 200 miles from the Dallas-Ft Worth metro area to meet the buyer for delivery. Will ship at buyer's expense--two boxes one for mirror+mount and one for rest of scope. Asking less than what components cost.

This is an unusual truss dob. Details of this scope are discussed in an article I wrote for Cloudynights under "Misadventures In Dob Building" January 2004. My loss will be someone's gain.

Thanks for looking,
Daniel Gillis
