RC Optical Systems 14" f/10 Carbon Truss Telescope For Sale
This fine instrument was purchased by me in 2000 and recently replaced by RCOS 16". In keeping with RCOS tradition of excellent customer service (second to none), this scope was completely redesigned and updated to RCOS latest technology. It is 100% structurally new. The Carbon Truss design is so precise, solid, and portable it raises the bar for all other telescope manufacturers. Its superb optics were hand crafted by Paul Jones of Star Instruments and have been recently recoated.
A thorough review of this telescope as well as images taken with this instrument by the well respected amateur astronomer Stanley Moore can be found at (email me and I will send you the link).
Asking $16,900 FOB South Florida. This is a substantial saving over the list price of $22,800 (RCOS 14.5”). I am also offering the purchaser a TCC a discounted price of $900 (list $1500). The TCC allows for computer control of focusing, instrument rotation, temperature control, and dew heating.
