Asking price REDUCED again to $1999, shipping included. Originally $2300. Must sell quickly to pay for AP 130EDF. Make an offer. Trades considered.
Borg 100ED in the "F4PH" (f/4) configuration (Anacortes part# 8105). This is Borg's 100ED apo objective mated with their "super reducer" set and a huge, precise helical focuser. Includes the Pentax 6x7 adapter. Check out the Anacortes website, their price new is $2680.

I've added:
- Borg tube rings (#MR115) - $89
- Riser blocks for a Losmandy dovetail plate (not included) (#MRB2) - $49
- Borg 2" eyepiece holder (#7508) - $21
- Borg multi-adapter for 6x7 back (#8267) - $33 (to attach ep holder)
- Borg soft case (#5403) - $51

These accessories cost an additional $243, total new cost $2923.

Everything is in excellent condition. The focuser has a small amount of play in it, but thanks to the finely engraved graduations, I found this easy to work around. (The f/4 configuration is better suited to astrophotography. If you want to use the scope for visual, I recommend removing the reducer assembly and observing at f/6.4 using extension tubes to achieve focus.)

Due to acquisition of dream scope, must sell. Asking $2300 shipping included, OBO - that's a savings of $695 off new, not counting the additional shipping that you would have to pay, and possibly also sales tax. I'm eager to sell before the check clears for that dream scope. <g>
