10" RC Optical Systems f/9 Ritchey-Chretien with complete TCC system and software, ready for imaging.

I bought this scope used from the original owner in 2004 (the scope was manufactured in 2002) and have used it occasionally for imaging.  I purchased the TCC system new in 2004 and have all of the cables and software.  I also have all documentation (mirror specs, tube specs, manuals, etc.).  This scope has great optics, and is ideal for imaging.

Optical Specs:

- 10" f/9 by Star Instruments
- RMS: 0.0342 wave
- Peak-Valley: 0.198 wave

Tube Specs:

- Carbon fiber tube with gloss black finish
- Astro-Physics 2.7 inch focuser
- Servo secondary adjustment
- Fixed instrument adapter
- Complete TCC system (controller, primary and secondary temp sensors, secondary dew resistor, secondary servo)
- Center dotted secondary (for use with Takahashi collimating scope)
- Top and bottom dovetail plates
OTA weight (including dovetail plates and Fixed Instrument Adapter) is 35 lbs

I'm also including a Takahashi collimating scope and an assortment of Astro-Physics 2.7" diameter extension tubes.

I'm in Oregon and would prefer a relatively local buyer to avoid shipping, but am willing to work with you in terms of driving or shipping if needed.
