Age, cataracts, and summer smoke in Southern Oregon have led me to offer my main observatory scope for sale.  It was purchased new in 1998 and has spent the majority of it's life in a covered outdoor observatory building.

 

All the equipment works properly including the scope hand paddle which allows alignment with a single observation when pier mounted.

 

The items included are listed below and recent pictures are attached.

 

I very much wish to sell this as a complete system to someone who will use and appreciate it.

 

Local pickup is by far the best option.  I can deliver the equipment locally however shipment and packaging must be arranged totally by the buyer.

 

My observatory is located near Grants Pass, Oregon.
