*REDUCED* Meade LightBridge 16"
After many wonderful memories under our starry nights I've decided to leave (for now) the hobby. I'm offering my very well used LighBridge. I've been to countless star parties with it from WSP in the key's to Gordon's Park on Manitoulin Island. One memorable highlight from 2016 came at Lennox-Addington Dark Sky Preserve when Terrance Dickenson viewed M51 thru my scope and commented on it being the best view he'd seen of the Whirlpool in many years - a nice comment from one of the best! I had the primary re-figured by OWL (I'm hoping to find the certificate to post) after a disappointing first, second, third etc light when compared to my Skywatcher 10". Best decision I made. The primary now floats in the mirror cell withoit the fixed silicone as per factory. The mirror could use a re-coat but provides stunning views as is. I've upgraded the collimation springs, secondary screws, painted upper & lower cage and poles (flaking on the poles now), added right angle view finder, light shroud, protective shroud for star party events, counter weights, stiffening brackets and wheel barrel handles. Scope moves beautifully on both axis and holds collimation very well. I bought it new from Khan Scope and loved every moment with it. Please call, text or e-mail.
Price: $1,300
