Discovery PDHQ 17.5" (premium Dob)

Post by AstroEW » November 7th, 2018, 11:32 pm

This is a beautiful scope. I bought it in June 2013 to take to dark sites, but only did once. It's been in my yard a half dozen times. I just don't have the time. Work and too many other hobbies.

I'm attaching the picture from the Discovery website, but my scope is identical size and color. Same features. I can provide pictures on request.

The scope is the f4.1, so viewing is possible for all but objects at zenith without a step. Objects at zenith will require a one step stool, or single step ladder. Wheel-barrel handles were added for easy moving.

The primary mirror is amazing quality. I paid extra $$ for the mirror lab test results. Final mirror performance specs (lab printout) will be provided.

My asking price is $1,800, half what was paid (including shipping). You will not find a scope of even near this quality for this investment.

Thanks for taking a minute to check it out.
