12" Dob BARGAIN PRICE!! In Good Order! $600!

On offer is a 12" dobsonian telescope, originally purchased from Sirius Optics for a hefty sum and I believe was manufactured by GSO for Sirius Optics for their own in-house telescope. I used it several nights ago (last tested on the 21st of June, although of course clouds rolled in after about an hour!) and it is in perfect working order, and although it is about 5-7 years old with some wear it will definitely handle all your viewing needs (assuming decent eyepieces). Sorry the pics are sideways, can't seem to fix that!

Mirror has been cleaned properly with distilled water and great care, but otherwise just give it a collimation and you're good to go. Overall, amongst the telescopes I have had this Southern Cross dob is excellent and as good as anything on the general market, and one of the cheapest 12" dobs for sale you will see (that is trustworthy that is and not dodgy!). No need for a mirror upgrade, just save money and keep your costs down. If you need a back up scope, one for a permanent setup, outreach, or to keep in your shed without fear of leaving thousands of dollars there, or just an alternative that doesn't cost so much!

Standard of course are a standard 26mm and 10mm plossl, and I will throw in a quite decent GSO superwide 5mm EP (which are surprising good). 2 inch adapter also but otherwise a simple rig that doesn't ages setting up, aligning or Einstein to run it!!

Price is negotiable but chasing around the $600 mark which is pretty decent really.

I work from home so drop around and grab it anytime or organize a courier to pick it up!
