Starmaster 14.5-in Telescope

The Alliance for Astronomy, Inc. was the fortunate recipient of a Starmaster 14.5-inch telescope from Jack Eagan.  The telescope is in pristine condition and will be available for ASEM use.  The telescope mirror has a focal length of 1,584 mm (F/4.3).  It features a built in Paracorr coma reducer which increases the effective focal length to 1,821 mm (F/4/9) with nice, round stars across a wide field.

It has a Sky Commander digital setting circles system with a go-to and tracking capability.  It breaks down into pieces for easy transport.  The heaviest piece is the mirror box (weight TBD).
