OK...I can't justify having both of these scopes so I have decided to sell one of them:
1. Cave Astrola, 12.5" f7, $1650,made into a Tectron dob, JSL focuser, Telrad, new Astrosystems spider, Secondary holder and secondary (Original comes with it too), wheelbarrow handles, 9 point cell. This scope gives wonderful images!! The fiberglass tube is OK, however, there are some holes drilled to move the cell up in the tube for binoviewing and for a new focuser. $1650
2. 8" F12 D&G refractor, $2800, coated lens, exceptional effort by Barry Greiner at D&G. I'm making a dobfractor mount for this and I have an old Starliner 1 3/4" shaft GEM I was going to put this on. I will sell the mount with the scope for an additional $550. NOTE: The mount is not included in the $2800 price, that is the OTA only. There is also a nice 8x50 finder on it.
Like I said, I am only selling one of these and It doesn't matter to me which one goes as they are both excellent telescopes. I can deliver within a reasonable drive of Oklahoma City. Call or email for additional info.405-329-0161
