For Sale,



Meade Magellan I Digital Setting Circles for 6" to 16" Meade Starfinder
Dobs. Included are 4000-step encoders for the Starfinder mount (alt-az),
Magellan computer, installation and owners guides, a fresh 9V battery,
original box, and mounting hardware.

I was able to locate Uranus and Neptune at 220x for the first time with
this system. The key to proper alignment is defocusing a star at high
power. This out-of-focus disc is easy to center against the field stop of
the eyepiece. Each time the unit is aligned it gives a number (about
90-110) which indicates the merit of alignment. With this method I can
get the perfect value of 100 consistently. This precise alignment can put
the object of interest in my 12mm Nagler (0.8 deg field) every time, and
even in my Pentax 5.2mm XL (0.3 deg). Also helpful in navagating the
Virgo-Coma galaxy cluster.

I am building a new Dob mount and tube for my mirror and decided to sell
the encoders and computer as a set, since the encoders are designed for
the Starfinder mounts.

Magellan I is $295.00 new, I'm offering it for $195 plus shipping.
Cashiers check or MO preferred, however, personal check is OK.
