I'm selling my Astrosystems 18 inch F4.5 Telekit with Steve Dodds Nova Optical primary. This scope is in mint condition because I very rarely got to use it in my light polluted neigborhood, and the primary mirror is very clean and free of dew stains. I thought about getting a dual axis equatorial platform to do astrophotography but it's too finicky and time consuming for my lifestyle so I'm moving towards a smaller rig. The primary mirror gives fantastic images and reveals its diffraction limited figure on Jupiter on very steady nights when detail inside the great red spot pops out. The protective weather shroud is included. This is great scope and very well assembled and finished. The wood finishing is still in excellent condition. I do a lot of craft projects and take great pride in making things beautiful. Due to the size of this I would prefer local pickup but I am open to shipping if necessary.
