SOLD - to Elton Fong - Thank you.
After going back and forth, I finally decided to sell this Teleport. Reason is that I have the 14.5" Teleport, so this one doesn't get used as much as it should. This is one heck of a scope. If you know Teleport, you know that no one makes a better telescope. I've viewed Saturn's rings at over 900X with this scope.
The new ones, with encoders (which this has)installed, solar filter and shipping cost around $5000 and have a very long waiting list. SF Bay Area pick up is MUCH prefered. This Teleport includes the Teleport Solar Filter, which you can see is mounted. (Pentax eyepiece in the picture is NOT included)
This has Zambuto mirrors (the best!), and it glides like a balerina. Mirror specs are:
Relative Transverse Aberration .37
Peak to Valley Wavefront 1/.. 23.4
Wavefront RMS 1/.. 67
Strehl Ratio .991
I'll accept the best offer over $4,000.
Shipping and insurance will be about $200 on top of the sale price. Absolutely will not ship outside the USA. Obviously, as mentioned above I prefer a SF Bay Area buyer.
Thanks for looking.
