I adopted another orphan…..


so there it was, sitting in the corner of a local thrift store, looking dejected and unloved- kind of like a pound puppy.

It was marked $19.00- as is.  It was covered in dust, was missing its mount and had a few minor dings and dents, but nothing too serious, so I bought it and brought it home.

And after taking the secondary and  primary mirror (4.5 inches)  out for a proper cleaning, I stuck the tube assembly in the shower.  I think I actually heard a sigh of relief!

I’ll need to make some sort of mount for this little guy, so stay tuned for updates.
