I have 120mm/4.7" f/8.3 Skywatcher refractor OTA, still new as shipped to me two years ago.

2" focuser with long travel (6" if memory serves), multicoated, well baffled by the factory in both the tube and focuser.

I have tried it out and found it to have very little in focus color even on bright stars and the moon, excellent contrast and it snaps to focus well. All in all I found it to be a honest good performer in its class. It is, however, duplicated by other telescopes better suited to my needs (shorter focus or larger diameter).

Much lighter than a 6" but still has large aperture, and works extremely well on a CG5 or LXD55 etc.

I bought it for the focuser (at the time focusers ran at 50% of the cost of the entire telescope!), and located a reasonably priced one from Apogee while the telescope was in transit, so I never used the telescope. It was stored in a dry interior closet and is still new as shipped. I believe it has a couple of flecks of black paint missing from the rim of the dewcap, and arrived that way.

$275 shipped insured WITH rings but no dovetail and no finder. I hope to ship it in the original carton. PayPal without extra fees if all positive feedback or US Postal Money order.

You can add a good 2" mirror diagonal for $65 ($75 if seperate from the scope).

You can add a Sirus Optics MV-1 minus violet filter for $68. I did not find it made a big difference on this telescope, so I would consider this optional.
