This amazing telescope was hand made by Vic Minard with the altitude berrings machined out of a solid piece of aluminum by Tom Clark.  The berrings actually "wrap" the rocker box on three sides making it the most stable dobsonian I have used, even thought the tube is long @ F6.2.  This was made in 1985 and has a few bumps and bruses which we can discuss.  It has a Sky Commander which is not working but the wiring is in place.  With good seeing, the stars are the littlest pinpoints I have ever seen and of course an amazing planetary scope.  Make an offer!
