For about three years now I have been collecting all of the components for a 17.5" truss dob. Due to ANOTHER job transfer and changes in living arrangements I feel that I need to part with this project. So here goes,

-17.5" Coulter primary (Corning pyrex) refigured by Swayze last fall. Steve says,"1/8 to 1/10 wave, beautiful". Coated by L&L 92% aluminized.
-Astrosystems 3.1" secondary 96% enhanced
-Astrosystems spider with heated secondary holder.
-Moonlight single rate Crayford focuser.
-Completed secondary cage, Baltic birch/Kydex/polished aluminum with Obsession upper truss clamps.
-Aircraft grade 1.25" aluminum truss poles(probably pick-up/delivery only).
-Welded/painted 18 point mirror cell with bars and triangles.
-Split bolts and kevlar sling material.
-2 fans with 2 sealed gell cell batteries and switch/charge panel.
-Roughed out lower truss blocks (rock maple cut but not drilled or routed).
-Obsession cast aluminum altitude bearings.
-Sky Commander DSC with encoders.
-Astrosystems teflon bearing kits for alt/az with drilled pivot bolt for az encoder.
-High density foam pipe insulation for truss poles.
-Kydex and Ebony Star, more than enough to finsh.

This is just about all one would need to build a very nice dob, less some nuts and bolts. If we can arrange pick-up and or delivery I even have a full sheet of 3/4" Baltic birch and partial sheets of 1/2" and 1/4" i'll throw in. I don't want to think about what I've spent on all this stuff over the years so I'm asking $2000. Paypal plus 3%, cashiers check, etc. Shipping all this stuff is almost out of the question but I might think about it. I can deliver within a few hundred miles of the DC area. Thanks' for looking.
