After much work and testing, I've decided to sell my C14 Edge HD. This scope has a new primary that is in pristine condition with its matching corrector plate. The OTA was completely repainted. Although not perfect it still looks good. The baffle tube was greased used a low outgas lubricant from Dupont. The OTA was flocked using FlockBoard purchased from ProtoStar. One of the other changes made was replacing the RTV 732 silicone between the mirror and mirror mount with specially designed and correctly spaced gaskets that make removing the mirror much easier. ( A big shout to the ATM'ers on this site for their help and guidance).

Optically, everything has been aligned and centered. I have tested the scope visually with various power eyepieces and the results have been great. With my 17mm T4 Nagler you can clearly see the cloud band detail in Jupiter. When I tested with the Hyperstar at F/2 during an EAA session the results were excellent(See attached photo of M13)

All that being said this is a modified scope and for that reason, I will price it accordingly. However, I would not be selling it if there was a problem. The only negative thing I can say is that the front cover has a few scratches on it.

The photo of M13 was taken with the HyperStar at F/2 using an Atik Infinity Camera during an EAA Session
