To my astro friends in Santa Fe...

I'm thinking about selling my fully loaded 12.5" Obsession.  Those of you who have viewed the sky with it in the past know how superb the optics are (Greg MacGregor, Rixon Reed, Doug Bullis, etc).  And OMI recoated the mirror just a couple of years ago (although it really didn't need it).  Since getting the mirror back, I probably haven't had it out more than a  dozen times at most.  Due to work, weather, age, other interests, work, etc., I'm just not using it much.  I'm thinking maybe something smaller and simpler down the road.  I've decided that perhaps I should sell it while everything is working well and the mirror is like new.  This Obsession is fully loaded.  This is a chance to buy an incredible scope with all the goodies including motorized GOTO, Wi-Fi computer control, premium accessories like the Feathertouch focuser, howie glatter laser collimator and sling, etc.  No tax, no shipping fees. 

I've put about $9000 into the package:

Classic 12.5”        $3495

ServoCat                3195

ArgoNavis                 895

SkyFi WiFi               125

Feathertouch focuser     450

Telrad                         40

Shroud                       179

Howie Glatter Mirror Sling      150

Howie Glatter Laser Collimator  200

OMI excellent mirror..

Wheels / Handles

I'm thinking $ 3800 ??

If you know anyone who is interested, have them contact me..

Thanks,

Tony

I would suggest that you post it on TAAS equipment trader, see https://www.taas.org/Trader/ , although the timing might be wrong as their first listed item is an Obsession as well. The problem with telescopes is that the sky is the limit!
