This is one sharp scope! - I bought this F/11 OTA New from Joe O'Neil back in 1999 at a cost of $235, plus $20 for the rings. - These were assembled in Canada using typical Skywatcher tube parts, but with Vixen spec Japanese objectives. - According to Joe, these are the "Research Grade" objectives, are coated on all surfaces, and exhibit much less false color, and will take more power than Chinese objectives will. - Has perfectly round diffraction pattern both in and out of focus; Great for Lunar Planetary, and the brighter deep sky objects. - This scope will Smoke a 90mm ETX!... NOTICE: This price is for the OTA, 6X30mm Finder, and Rings only. and (does not include the diagonal, eyepiece, or mount and tripod.) - Those items did not come with this OTA when it was new for the $235 that I paid. - Only $150 Shipped in Conus; extra to Alaska or Hawaii.
- PayPal prefered, (anyone can use their credit card with no extra charge) but Money Order ok too. - Mount is available as shown with oak legs for an additional $100.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
