Selling my 'classic' 17.5" dobsonian

Reluctant sale but I'm moving to a city apartment and need to free up space...

Built in 2002, timber has had a few knocks, but it still provides great views. Probably requires someone who is familiar with dobs or prepared to learn and tinker...

- The 17.5" f4.5 Coulter mirror was re-figured by Steve Swayze http://www.swayzeoptical.com/ (mirror is not pristine but not bad given the years)
- 9 point mirror cell with fan
- Crayford focuser
- Marine ply construction
- Mirror box is around 25kg but designed with a low-profile so it should fit in the boot of a Ford Falcon or similar.

Was on sale back in May for $2200.
Now asking $1400 o.n.o - pickup only from Moggill (Brisbane)

For many more photos and setup instructions see http://jasonwerry.blogspot.com/2017/...cope-part.html

Cheers, Jason
