With Mars coming, it is nice to have the sharp contrast provided by an unobstructed view. And it is even better when it has no cooldown issues, even transitioning from a warm house to a cold evening.

Scotty wrote the Deep Sky column for S&T, using a 4" long focus refractor. While he had darker skies than most of us, it was still amazing how much he could see. Of course, a long focus refractor has excellent contrast, while maintaining good and affordable color correction. Because of the long focal length, the tube is a little longer, but the color correction is greatly improved, while keeping the cost reasonable. And with Mars coming closer, it is the perfect scope for this Summer, as well as for the years to come. This particular 4" f/15 refractor is not Scotty's scope, but is an excellent scope of the same genre, and you will enjoy it for years. It is an older Edmund Refractor, made when Edmund was still supplying very good refractors.

Upgraded to a 2" Burgess focuser.
Apogee 60mm right-angle finder.
Losmandy rings for finder.
Losmandy dovetail shoe and dovetail adapter for rings.
Tube rings. (dovetail not included unless mount is purchased)
Kendrick dew straps for scope and finder.
(mount and Kendrick controller are not included in $450 price)

Asking $450 plus shipping. Will consider offers for the whole setup.

Thanks for looking.

Chuck Taylor
