This was my fathers personal telescope and has been packed away for about 20 years. He was an astronomer, so in its day this was top of the line. I know nothing about this other than when we packed it up it was working and he was using it. The weights are going to make the package heavy to ship, so I’ll use UPS which will be expensive, but professionally packaged. If the actual shipping is less then the $200 listed I will refund the difference. I would be open to free local pickup, which would occur at the Orient Road Jail in Tampa, Fl.
I received a message from someone who is familiar with this type telescope and they do not believe the weights belong with this telescope. If you win the telescope and do not want the weights, just let me know and I will exclude them when shipping, which should help with the shipping cost.
