This is the Skywatcher version of the 6 inch f8 Achromatic Refractor by Synta, less than 6 months old and in excellent condition. It has the adjustable lens cell. It offers great views of the moon and planets, but like all achromats has a small amount of false color on brighter objects. This is a big scope and requires adequate support to be useful (I used on a beefed-up CG-5 with a wooden tripod which was fine for visual use). Comes with mounting rings, end caps, finder, and 2"/1.25" reducer. Am selling as I need money to upgrade my beloved Starmaster. Will sell for $375.00. Would like to sell locally (within
100 miles of Cleveland, Ohio) but will ship at your expense in original container (figure on about $50). Prefer certified check. Thanks!
