I have decided to sell my 11" ELT because, since I received it new at the end of last October, I have used it probably less than 10 times. You see, I live in an apartment, under city lights, and having to travel to see much of anything other than the brighties, I've found I get more use out of my 80mm achro. Sad, I know. This is one of the last 11" f5.4 ELT's that Starmaster made. The f5.4, unlike the current f4.5 model, doesn't require the use of a Paracorr coma corrector. The primary is by the legendary Zambuto (Strehl ratio 0.996), and the exellent Starmaster costumer service is attached to the scope for life. Also, standard are mirror covers, light shroud, Rigel Quikfinder, and bag for the poles. All original packing cartons and paperwork are included. There are a few light scratches and dings in the finish of the wood from transport. Also, the mirrors have probably collected more dust than photons. I'll let you decide when to clean them. The scope will come with these extras:
Feathertouch dual speed focuser with 2-1.25" adapter
Tele Vue Bronze Equalizer 2-1.25" to help balance with lighter 1.25" eyepieces
Sky Commander digital setting circles
secondary dew heater
Tectron collimation tools
I am asking $3,000 for the lot. The current 11" ELT with all this would cost you $4,465, and wouldn't be ready for 4 to 6 months. The scope must be picked up in Savannah, GA. I will accept cash, money order, or cashier's check as payment. Please e-mail or call with questions, or to set an appointment to check this fine telescope out.
(***SOLD*** Thanks Bob!)
