** SOLD **
I have an ETX 70 F/5, with a set of adjustable rings (refractor optics). Scope uses 1.25" eyepieces. Tube was professionally painted black by Russell optics. Very good to mint shape, flip mirror works smoothly, excellent wide field finder. Front lens could be cleaned. Front end cap, rear end cap (both threaded), plus viewing port cap. Paid $135 plus shipping. I never even used or mounted this item -- so it's exactly as I purchased it and includes a new Meade 26mm Super Plossl in a bolt case. I will sell it at $110 + $10 s/h.
Another option is I currently have for sale a Meade 60mm finder w/Illuminated reticle for sale on Astromart. The reticle can be switched from 0.965 to 1.25". If you wanted this Meade 70mm ETX finder scope with the 1.25" illuminated reticle (instead of the Meade 26mm Super Plossl in a bolt case) -- I'd sell it at $165.
I'm selling to raise money for a new OTA.
