This Televue NP-101 OTA and its hard and soft cases are not yet 3 months old and in absolutely MINT, immaculate condition in every way. In fact, the warranty card on the scope was never sent in and comes with the scope! Optically & mechanically absolutely superb as attested to by the results I achieved running this beauty through the mill with and without a new Televue binoviewer and various premium TV, Tak, Brandon and Leica eyepieces and barlows.
Why sell it? Simple, I just this morning closed a deal on a mint Astro-Physics Traveler, and I already own an Astro-Physics 7.1" f/9 Starfire EDT, Takahashi Sky-90 and Celestron 9.25" SCT. According to my wife, either this scope goes or I do, and believe me, I had to think about it for a bit.
The scope comes to you exactly as it comes from Televue, that is, one pristine NP-101 OTA with Televue Everbrite 2" Diagonal, end cap, owner's manual and a Televue hard case. In addition, you get the brand new, Televue airline transport soft-case. All original foam inserts are mint condition and included.
The Televue 31mm T5 Nagler, Star-beam finder and Gibraltar mount that you see in the photos are NOT included - my Traveler gets those.
Total price carefully packaged, shipped Priority Mail and insured to anywhere in CONUS is $3,300. If you don't want or need the soft case, the price for the OTA and hard case would be $3,200.
Alaska or Hawaii shipping would add a little to price to reflect actual increased expense. Sorry, but no foreign shipping, as I don't want to hassle with Customs. I would love to do this deal locally to avoid the packing logistics, and the price would in that case be $50 less.
Money order or Paypal are ok, but you would have to fund any Paypal fees to be deducted.
Thanks for looking !!
