This optical Tube was originally made with standard optics in 2006.
Then in 2014, The mirrors were replaced with Ion milled optics(1/40 wave RMS) and all the electronic parts were
replaced by rich simons at deep sky instruments(now RCOS). I am the original owner of the Mirrors and electronics, the other hardware was part of the optical tube from 2006.
The mirrors may be a bit dusty, but I would rather leave it up to you for whether or not you want it cleaned at this point.
The mirrors should not need a recoting any time soon since they have only 4 years of use and no cleaning has been done.
I can send you more images of the telescope and a verification of the ion milling if you are interested.
I will also ship to any location.
I will however give a $500 discount if you pick it up. if the shipping cost is less than $1000.00 I will refund you the difference.This is worth $32000 new. so this is only ~55% the cost of a new one.
