Seben 76mm/f10
This telescope is in great condition and I have donated it. I made a few corrections and replaced the eyepieces in 10mm - 25mm super Plossl :smile:

Marios, that is just fantastic! Wow, you went through everything with a fine tooth comb! I like the way you blackened everything from the focuser tube, the secondary, even the tube mount points :D Looks great with the red dot finder, too.
That picture of the Moon you took through it is great and especially considering it's afocal as well. You've obviously got the collimation spot-on too!

Very well done Marios, and I envy the lucky recipient of it. Very nice of you for sure.

BTW, I like the bolts you use for mounting the OTA to the forks, where did you get those? Just curious.
I have a Tasco T3 and a Towa 3" that could use your touch...:D

All the best and thanks for posting that,
Mark

- Did you donate to a Astro Club? - Thanks Γαβριέλα
When I do Street Astronomy not for money just for fun and I see people interested I give them a telescopes that I buy as a used and correct them or by someone who doesn't use them. It's my church!

Very nice Marios :)
I am always looking for telescopes to fix and give to children/ teens to help them start viewing.
