See also my ad in the reflector section. The components are:

14" f/5 pegasus mirror (2" thick) with specs from Jon Hall: worst case strehl .992, worst case PV error 1/17. (He gives the average PV error as 1/136, and the strehl as .999!)

2.6" secondary with holder and 3-vane spider. The spider is homebuilt, very lightweight and sturdy with minimal diffraction--the secondary is easy to collimate.

The mirror and the secondary need re-coating, although they are still serviceable: Clausing will recoat (in beral) the primary for $90, and the secondary for $25, plus shipping. I could also ship the mirrors to Clausing and have him ship them to you.

The 2" focuser is a homemade crayford, very usable at 300X.

9-point free-floating cell is based on a 1/4" triangular aluminum plate, center drilled for ventilation; it holds collimation very well.

altitude bearings.

red-dot finder.

Planetary and deep sky views are both fabulous with this instrument.

A sacrifice at $1280 plus shipping. Consider that a new 12.5" mirror from Pegasus is $1250, while a 14.5" is $1500.

I'm selling this great scope because I built a 16" ultralight with Swayze optics.

Thanks, George
