"Downgrades" Wanted

Hi,



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.
