Big Orion Dob 12" Push to style XTi
« on: April 12, 2018, 06:37:41 pm »
I have been bantering with this seller about a day or so now. While his pictures don't show it, he does have the Computer Intelliscope Hand control. He is about 40 miles north of us just east of Brandon. This is a big scope with the OTA alone at 50lbs.
So its either a jewel or junk but at ($650 minus your best negotiating skills) I think it might be a good buy, especially if you flash cash. Over $1000 new, plus it appears he has a custom case. And eyepieces too.

I do not know this person.  I like to see and try things I buy and this gives you a chance if your looking for a big dob. Look at the mirrors for cracks and missing coatings. And make sure the computer "push to" component works.
