High quality portable refractor. I'm reluctant to sell it, but have a Stellarvue 102D and don't need two small telescopes. This is a very early version (I was one of Vic's first customers), probably destined to be a collector's item: pre-serial number, original 2" focuser (no vignetting problems), early knobs. Includes dust cap, red dot finder, rings, 1.25" adapter, and 3-hole tripod mounting plate. Black color. No diagonal or eyepieces.
Excellent functional condition: no optical flaws, focuser is smooth. Cosmetically very good. The top and sides are excellent. The bottom has a few scratches and surface scrapes from mounting: the most significant is a 3/16" circular gouge (only in the paint, does not penetrate or dent the metal) from a mounting screw.
As is well-known, the AT1010 is a high-performing achromat. Contrast and sharpness are excellent throughout the field of view; the scope can be taken to 150x-200x easily. Build quality is superb. $295 includes U.S. shipping. Check, money order, or PayPal. If PayPal, please add $9.
