Club Owned Telescopes Removed from Loaner Pool

The following telescopes have been removed from the loaner scope pool for a variety of reasons.  We have decided to dispose of these scopes in 2016 as part of an annual fundraising effort to rehabilitate the remaining loaner scopes in the pool.  These scopes will likely be auctioned off to the highest bidder during the fund raising period.  If you have any questions about the scopes below, please contact the Loaner Telescope Coordinator at telescope@raleighastro.org.
