OK, it's just TOO big for me! I traded for this fine 'scope about 6 months ago and find that it's too hard to handle for me...

The 'scope is an older 16" Meade DS-16 on their superb equatorial mount. The previous owner told me that the mirror had been re-figured by Swayze, but I can't confirm that - except for the fact that it seems to have a superb figure. 'Scope comes with digital setting circles (Magellan system), dual axis control, hand controller, Telrad, one eyepiece, and tools. Make no mistake, this is HUGE and heavy and would best be placed in a permanent location.

I'd like a 'scope of comparable value (roughly $2,600) and would have to arrange pickup here in the northern West Virginia panhandle (Wheeling, about 60 miles west of Pittsburgh). I'd particularly like a truss-Dob in the 12.5 - 14" range, but am open to all offers...

Pictures available on request.
