This is a mint scope purchased this spring. The parabolic primary mirror of 1200mm focal length (f/5.9) is center marked at the factory for easy collimation. A 2" aluminum rack and pinion focuser accepts both 2" and 1.25" eyepieces and a new "navigation knob" sets this scope apart from others. The tube is enameled steel and not sonotube as others. Included are a 6x30 view finder scope, 25mm and 10mm Plossl eyepieces. Also as an extra, I am including a Cheshire collimating tool to keep your scope perfectly aligned. I made one modification. I added 3 locking casters to the bottom base plate for ease of movement. You have the choice of installing the original Orion pads or the casters when reassembling. I found the casters the be stable and very handy.
$402.00 plus shipping conus.
