Well, I picked up this meade starfinder for sale in woodward. Owner thinks its a 10". I measured it and the tube diameter is about 9.5" and the mirror is a bit smaller, so, I think its an 8".
I got it for $75. Came with 3 cheap eyepices.
I gave it a go in my backyard saturday night(I decided to not go to the member night at cro, too much driving for one day.) The views were spectacular! Its pretty heavy, so I am glad I have the 3" i picked up a couple m.nths back
Will post pics for size comparison and will post a pic of m31 and m110 on the corner. Nothing good, but good for me!
