12" GSO Dob Telescope - now $600

- 12" Guan Sheng Dob (originally purchased from AndrewsCom) with base in good condition (brother-in-law tried moving it with the lens rack which pulled the screws out, but it's since been fixed)

Comes with the following:

- Telrad ($80 value)
- 6mm, 15mm, 25mm GSO 1.25" Super Plossl eyepieces
- GSO 32mm 2" Wide Field eyepiece
- GSO ED 2x Barlow Lens ($90 value)
- Bob's Knobs on Primary (with strengthened springs), secondary and Telrad ($30 value)
- Orion Collimating Eyepiece ($90 value)
- Orion SteadyPix Deluxe camera attachment ($80 value)
- Orion Variable Polarizing Filter (1%-40%) ($80 value)
- Right angle correct image 8x50 finderscope

now $600

Not willing to separate items at this stage.

I've added a baffle surrounding both the fan, and inside the tube an inch above the primary mirror to direct air over the mirror cell (see pics).

Also comes with a brand new spare secondary mirror.

Located in Coburg North, Victoria.
Local pickup only (I have original packaging and box for the scope, minus the base)

Is this any good for primary imaging or does the mirror need to be moved up?
