Nice, portable, sturdy, fine performer. Pyrex primary started life as Meade f/6, then was re-ground and figured to 1/20th wave f/5 by Ed Beck in 1996. Recent Beral coating in 2002. Protostar 1.52" secondary. JMI 1.25" Reverse Crayford focuser (very smooth). Red-dot finder. Mirror cell is the one Meade used to have on their Dobs, but this one has been ventilated for faster cooling. Tube also has 4 holes strategically cut to eliminate tube currents, with fabric covers (velcro) for each hole (pic shows covers off 2 of the holes). Azimuth bearing has been changed to Ebony Star. Base, tube and spider are Meade. Various holes in tube have been filled and repainted, or covered, so finish isn't flawless, but is pretty decent - albeit custom ;). I'm selling this to finance a larger scope I'm building. $350. I'd rather not ship this, but will drive reasonable distance from Lansing, Michigan to meet buyer.
