For sale is a used Parks 16-inch fiberglass tube.  The tube is 61.25 inches long and has a hole 17 inches from the short end where a Novack 2-inch focuser had previously been mounted.  There are bolt mounting holes (4) for the removed spider and (8) for the removed mirror cell.  The tube is in great shape and has been stored in bubble wrap.  It has a smooth white gel coat finish and a rough black flocked interior finish.  The hole can easily be covered, filled or reused depending on your needs.  I have remounted my 14-inch mirror into a truss-style open tube. The tube thickness is about 3mm and it weighs about 22 pounds.  Equivalent new tubes sell for about $500 or more,
