12.5" F/5 TEETER DOBSONIAN STRUCTURE (MINUS THE PRIMARY MIRROR & FOCUSER)
For sale is an early Teeter Conversion, TT02. built for a 12.5", f5 primary & 2" Moonlite focuser. No primary mirror or focuser. Does include 2.60" minor axis secondary mirror (mirror is in fantastic condition, pretty much flawless with no scratches). Overall scope is in great shape. A few tiny dings here and there, but nothing significant. only "non-Teeter" modifications would be the flocking and small drilled holes for accessories that have been removed. the finder scope may not be "stock" (8 x 50). Please see photos for details and condition.
?All functions perfectly. All bearing surfaces glide smoothly with perfect amount of "striction". Mirror box includes wheels on the bottom for ease of moving when out of rocker box. Moonlite truss system. 9 point mirror cell. Primary and secondary adjustment knobs for toolless collimation. Cooling mirrors have connectors but will need a power source and additional wiring. Again note, no primary mirror or focuser.??For comparison, this would be quite similar to the current Teeter Stark Series 12" --structure only.??Teeter telescopes have no equal. This one is listed on Teeter's Telescope Log as ?tt02, "our second order, but first commercial delivery". ?
Built in 2002, this instrument is certainly a testament to the the design and build quality that Teeter earned his reputation with. ??Add the primary mirror and focuser of your choice and have a first class ?Teeter telescope for the price of a kit. ??I will pack securely and ship in three boxes. actual shipping fee may be adjusted slightly, depending on actual cost and no packing/handling fee added. Listed shipping cost is from Kansas City to Los Angeles, as an example. Please contact me with any questions and I'll do my best to answer.
