This C-10 is the best one of all, and it comes with a wedge, and pier, blue pictured. The black tripod seen in picture is not part of this auction. The scope is just shown placed on it. This is a f/13.5 and is ready to go, visual back and all. I will even include an eyepiece. This is a rare scope, powerful on planets. Look at Jupiter pic done with this scope. When New they sold for a lot of money because the mirrors were made so well, and you as well as I do, there is no short cut to producing quality hand figured mirrors. These are definitely higher quality than any Schmidt I have ever looked through. CONTUS bidding only, no oversees bidding and no bidding out of contus. I'd predict, with in a year, it will be nearly impossible to find these famed C-10's anywhere. When they were made, their cost was nearly that of a Volkswagen Bug Car. The optics and craftsmanship was that detailed.
