Very nice optics I am the third owner and was told the lens is an edscorp f/15 achromat. The tube is very light aluminum with multiple baffels, the focuser is a unitron 2".
The mount I believe to be a celestron super polaris with duel drives and DMD3 controller.
The legs have been replaced with very rigid aluminum to a height of 59" I have only used this 3 or 4 times (i have a 12" lx200) And was very impressed with the views. very little color and very good contrast
The tube is scratched and needs a paint job the baffels seem a bit loose (drop of glue) The focuser works very well. The mount and drives are also in very good condition. Because of the lite tube this mount supports this BIG refractor fine for visual use, and also portability. easy 10 min. setup.
Very nice views, Orion nocked my socks off! Jupter showed a lot of detail as did saturn.
I am asking $950.00 plus shipping ( aprox $65) OR best offer.
