This is the Vixen C102 optical tube assembly, made in Japan for Celestron. Its condition is excellent, with only two or three very small scratches on the tube. The glass is perfect and the 1.25" focuser is smooth. There is no finder, diagonal, or eyepiece; the finder mounts in a dovetail (retaining screw is not original). I will include a 1x red dot star pointer. Also included are the rings and dovetail mount plate (fits Vixen GP and clones). The mount in the picture is not included.

The optical quality is excellent, far better than those made-in-China imitations that are flooding the market. Very little false color; nice tight star images; it will handle 300X without image breakdown. Vixen makes some of the best bargains in the optical world. I am only selling this one to move up to their 102ED. Lunar and planetary images are often better than much larger reflectors. Focal length is 1000mm; f/9.8; weight approx. 8.6 lbs.

The current new price for one of these (Astronomics) is $765 and it's backordered. Take this one for $380 shipped/insured in con-USA.
