I bought this OTA from Gary Russell about 3 years ago. He understood that someone at Meade had the Schmidt Cassegrain-type 8" mirror (which accounts for the light weight) figured as an f4.8 parabola. Fiberglass tube (with a few small holes from other accessories which could easily be filled). Great 1x finder. JMI NGF-3 2" focuser. Optional counterweight system included. Central hole in primary and extra secondary holder for conversion to classic cassegrain (cassegrain secondary not included). Primary and secondary coatings in very good condition. Mount is a very low mileage Meade 6600/8800 equatorial on wood tripod with 2-year old (NOS) RA motor drive and battery pack. Very good images. Tracks well. Very lightweight. OTA weighs 10 pounds. OTA only for $325. Houston Texas area. Email any questions. Thanks for looking. Shipping UPS at cost to continental U.S.
