I am the second owner of a 1996 AP 155 EDFS and 900 QMD combination which I purchased in February of 2003 in hopes of constructing a permanent observatory for it. Unfortunately my plans have changed and I am not proceeding with the observatory, so the scope and mount must go. I paid $11,500.00 for the complete package including an AP portable pier, AP finder, 2" diagonal, etc. Both pieces are truly mint and have been used only several times (previous owner says 9 or 10 times and I used it 3 or 4 times). I prefer to sell as a package, but would sell the tube separately after the mount is sold (if someone only wants the mount). I feel that I paid a fair price for the combination and am offering it for what I paid, $11,500.00. I would prefer to have the instrument picked up or I will consider delivering it in the mid-Atlantic region.
Thanks for considering this fine package, Tim Tate
