Black Diamond 10" F4.7 Newtonian OTA - Price Reduction !

SW Black Diamond 10" F4.7 F/L-1200mm OTA

With 4 Tube Rings & a long long 800mm Home-made Alu 15mm thick Dovetail bar designed for a Losmandy Saddle. Also includes the 2" 28mm stock eyepiece.
I can also offer the ota with the original 2 ring arrangement and vixen style bar. see pricings below.

Note 1) I have 'hollowed' out the tube-ring mountings for the dovetail-bar (see pic # 4) This gives much improved stability, these SW ring-set bases are 'slightly convex' and can/will flex at this point ! Hollowing this joint out gives two points of contact on each ring securing a firm and solid connection between them and dovetail bars. .

Note 2) Also made a home-made Alu bracket custom fitted to the focuser for mounting the Orion ACCU motor-focuser - belt-drive, further details on request ?

Quite a chunky & very rigid combo, weight = 16 kilo with Finder included, and has been driven comfortably by my Neq6p mount.
Very clean unit inside & out, no scratches, dents or the like anywhere. The scope is 6 yr old and the optics are still fantastic for visual and imaging.

I have collected some very nice images with the deepsky cameras on this scope which I will add at a later date.

Asking $500 - now $450, with the four ring set and home-made losmandy fit bar 'OR' $400 - now $350 with the original two rings and vixen bar.

Prefer pick-up SE QLD at this stage as I will need to source some boxing/packaging etc, please anticipate shipping costs if you request shipping ?
