I bought this with aspirations for an astrophotography project, but my job has since been axed and I need to recoup some cash.
White Meade ETX-125 OTA. I've never seen a white ETX-125 but this is a stout, heavy OTA. Has heavy screw-on machined aluminum lenscap. Tube is of thick machined or drawn aluminum.
The optics are pristine (excepting of a little internal dust/dirt) and do not appear to have any coatings. No visible scratches on the optics anywhere. The exterior of the tube has a scratch here or there in the paint but absolutely no dings or dents anywhere.
Missing the typical ETX rear assembly that normally houses the flip-mirror system but I have fabricated an assembly that utilizes a 1.25" visual back to allow attaching of diagonals and/or eyepieces. Also made the plate and rings. Fabricated a 1.75" x 1.75" dovetail for attachment to compatible photo tripods. All modifications are completely removeable and OTA is intact and has not been altered or changed in any way. My modifications are easily removed. The focusing mechanism is intact and functions perfectly.
Includes the OTA, lenscap, custom mount & end assembly, standard 2" VB ring (goes with the back in rear assembly) and a pristine Meade 26mm 1.25" Super Plossl eyepiece.
