    Thanks Stu that be great actually I found mounting it better than I remember and I was considerly younger but also the Mount helps an added expense but had to be done but means letting one of the other scopes go to keep the bank manger happy just tried out the focusser it’s amazing now I have two scopes with motor focus lazy me

  13. This is a Tough decision I recently got this wonderful Custom made 16’’ inch Dobsonion after longing for a quality one, then along came a scope I owned many years ago For sale and had to let go due to financial reasons. I know I would probably never get another opertunity to own this rare scope again so I purchased it And i do need a new mount to mount it and need to fund it some how so up for For sale is this fantastic Dob don’t be put off it really is quite portable and managble in sections far easy than a Flex -tube from Skywatcher it will go through standards doorways no problem 16’’ inch F4.5 Custom made Truss Tube Dobsonion it glides when pushed and those little nudges are really smooth it comes complete with feather touch sips focuser which has the Televue paracore 2 built in Theese cost over £1100 imported from the USA now OO custom spider heated 1 1/10th secondary mirror , scope cover , light shroud , the views are stunning and the build quality is up there with the best it holds Collimation very well all night even and takes minutes to assemble and colimate and will fit in the back of most family cars for transport the mirror has some surface dust but has not been cleaned and does not affect the views at all . im looking for offers around £2k that’s around half it’s build cost . Viewing most welcome also help with delivery Possable
