I have an old 6" "blue tube" starfire, perhaps the last made (I had
to beg for blue...they had just started painting Starfire tubes
white!) with 800 mount. Over the years I've done 2 "upgrades", now
I'm looking to "downgrade" back to original configuration. Anyone
out there with these parts for sale??
1) 2.7" CAST focuser. I replaced my old cast focuser with a machined
one, then actually machined the cast one for a different scope...now
I'm looking to reverse that move.
2) AP800 mount controller (from the 1st production run of 800
mounts) WITHOUT SBIG interface. I long-ago had AP modify my
controller with DB9 connector, etc...quite frankly, its a pretty
cludgy ugly thing...though it works fine! I'm looking for one of the
old unmodified controllers.
Please contact me privately if you can help.
