Hi guys! The time has come and we are moving back to Mexico. I will have to get rid of the bigger OTA, and accessories. Here is the add as placed in astromart:

Selling a fast 10in f/4 (1016mm fl.) Meade Schmidt-Newtonian with UHTC coatings.
Upgrades:
- Flocked and baffled; covered with genuine protostar flocking material.
- Cell screws replaced with stainless steel allen screws.
- JMI EV3 Crayford focuser with LXD75 kit. (~$298 new)
- Bob's knobs for easy collimation.
- JMI's carrying case. (~$399 new)

Accessories:
- Laser collimator.
- Cheshire collimator.
- EasytesterII autocollimator.
- Meade Series 4000 Eyepiece & Filter Set with case: 6.4mm, 9.7mm, 12.4mm, 15mm, 32mm, 40mm Super Plossls, 2X Barlow, #12, #23A, #58, #80A color filters, ND96 moon filter (~$199 new)
- I'll include the original 26mm Super Plossl that came with the telescope.
- Original 8x50 Finder scope.
- Astrozap Flexible Dew Shield.

The tube presents some minor marks and the dovetail some wear. The mirrors and front glass are very clean with minor dust normal from use.

It will make a great tube for a dobsonian project!

I'm asking $600 if you pick it up in Fayetteville. I'll attach some pics in a followup.

Thanks for watching!

Thank you Mike!
Once I'm settled, I'll see how it goes with Mexico City's light pollution. Hopefully narrow band filters allow me to do some imaging, else I'll do less deep sky and more Moon/planetary, but definitely not quitting. Wink
