|Meade SN10 Optical Tube Assembly, many upgrades fitted. Last Price Drop!|
This Meade SN10 has been fitted with an Evolution Crayford Focuser, a proper skywatcher finder base, a Telrad base, a Bob's Knobs collimation screw set and a steel dew shield. Tube cap included.
The tubes insides are covered with flocking paper for two reasons, one it gives better contrast then the paint and secondly the internal black paint was getting very flaky anyway, this is a known issue with these galvanised steel tube scopes.
Included are the tube rings and a long Losmandy type dovetail bar.
The optics are in excellent nick and the scope holds its collimation well both when moving from side to side (try this with a floating mirror SCT) and long term. I have just had it out and notice there is a fine line on the front plate about an inch long ad 1/3 of the way in from the edge. It will make no difference to the scope's utility but feel I should mention for the sake of an accurate description.
The F4 ratio gives a great wide field view and minimises exposure times down for photographic purposes. This scope has a flatter field than a standard Newtonian of this focal ratio but the ultra fussy will require a coma corrector for their large format sensors should this be your bag.
There are marks on the external paintwork, a few from the mods and on the dovetail bar as a result of normal use but nothing that would impact the scope's function in anyway whatsoever.
High resolution photos are available on request.
Inspection in Reading welcome!
I have decided to sell this because the eyepiece is placed too high when viewing anywhere close to the Zenith, don't fancy messing about with steps or ladders.
Postage is approximately £14.75 tracked and signed for though if you live within and hour or twos drive from Reading I will prefer to deliver it myself.
If some one has an SN6 with good optics and a sound tube I may be prepared to do a trade and offset its value against the price of the SN10.
Payment by direct bank transfer preferred, PayPal +2.5% or cheque is acceptable though must clear before shipping.
