...FOR SALE. THIS BEAUTIFUL 5" F/15 OTA HAS BEEN MODIFIED BY NONE OTHER THAN KEN'S RINGS. I'VE ADDED SOME MODIFICATIONS TO IT TO MAXIMIZE IT'S ABILITY TO IT 'S FULLEST POTENTIAL. GO TO HIS SITE TO SEE THIS SCOPE AND ALL THE FEATURES IT COMES WITH. MY MODS ARE AS FOLLOWS: METAL SHAVINGS AND DUST HAVE BEEN CLEANED OUT, OTA HAS BEEN FLOCKED, THE THREE HOLES AT REAR OF OTA AND BACK PLATE HAVE BEEN SEALED (HOLES PAINTED WHITE).THE BIGGEST IMROVEMENT IS THAT IT HAS THREE HOLES DRILLED INTO THE 1.25" ATTACHING PLATE ON BACK TO MAKE COLLIMATION POSSIBLE WITHOUT REMOVAL OF PLATE AND CAN BE DONE ON A MOUNT, USING EITHER AN ARTIFICIAL STAR OR POLARIS, WITH EASE. ANOTHER ADDITION TO THE OTA ARE EMBOSSED GOLD SEMI-SCRIPT LETTERING ON EITHER SIDE READING 'MEADE 125 SE' (SPECIAL EDITION). A FINAL FEATURE FOR THIS UNIT IS THE INCLUSION OF A SEPARATE REMOVAL 2" EP BACKING, SO YOU CAN SWITH BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE PLATES. THIS MAK-CASS IS A FANTASTIC PLANET KILLER AND TERRIFIC DOUBLE STAR SCOPE AS WELL. PERFECT TIMING FOR SATURN, JUPITER AND VENUS! IT IS A UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND MODEL THAT YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE. USED LESS THAN TEN TIMES AND IS IN IMMACULTE CONDITION. FRANKLY, I'M LOATHE TO PART WITH IT AFTER ALL THE EFFORT I PUT INTO IT! MY LOSS WOULD TRULY BE YOUR GAIN. COMES WITH DOVETAIL AS WELL. $400 IS THE PRICE, PLUS S&H; M.O., BANK CHECK OR PERSONAL CHECK ACCEPTABLE (MUST CLEAR, OF COURSE). MIGHT CONSIDER A TRADE FOR A BINO MOUNT (THAT CAN HANDLE A 25X100 BINOC) PLUS $$$ OR A TRAVEL SCOPE PACKAGE. I'M FLEXIBLE ABOUT THE TRADE ISSUE SO LET'S TALK. THANKS FOR TAKING A LOOK!
