Hi all,

I'm selling my old newt because it doesn't get used anymore. Its a very good condition 10 inch f5.2 with a 2.6 inch secondary in a 62" long X 12 7/8" outer diameter fiberglass tube. Tube wall is 1/4" thick. The focuser is 18" back from the front of the tube. Secondary is Protostar quartz QLS mirror, I bought new in Dec.,2007. I lined the tube with Protostar flocking in 2008. Nice 50mm finder scope with 90 deg. diagonal and cross hair reticle. The tube has a few scratches and a few spots of surface crazing, but looks nice and is structurally sound. Tube is mounted on a Meade DS-16 equatorial mount with RA electric clock drive. I added, poor mans, rotating rings made using teflon, vinyl tubing and stainless steel strap clamps. All hardware was replaced with stainless steel. One Meade 32mm plossl eyepiece is included. This scope was custom made using Meade and maybe Cave components. It may have been made by the astronomy department as the University of Texas at Dallas because there is a sticker on the scope reading "property of the University of Texas at Dallas" followed by a serial number More pics available if interested. But seeing it in person is best.

Would like to sell locally. Shipping would be quite expensive.
