I have a 12.5" reflector mounted on a motorized GEM. It also is fitted with Orion Sky-Wizard II DCS. It has "manual" goto. It has a "Jerry" mirror that is absolutely awesome. I have put it beside 18" mirrors and had it perform just as well or better. At this time the mirror would do an even better job if it were recoated. This is the type of telescope that needs to be in an observatory seeing as it weighs about 400 lbs. The counter-balance weights are 150 lbs. by themselves. It cannot be shipped and would need to be used at a location of about 42 degrees..+/- 3 Degrees. Reason for selling: I moved and my new subdivision will not allow an observatory. I have $4600 invested but will let it go for $3000 or any reasonable offer. If I can't get a reasonable offer I will take the mirror and Sky-wizard and use them to make an ultra light dob.
Thanks for looking,
