For Sale: Schmidtkamera 170/200/300 f/1.7. made by Philipp Keller Germany. 9 years old, only used by my friend Bernd Flach-Wilken and me. Invar-based construction, never had to be re-collimated! This one has a unique focussing unit made by Lichtenknecker (quick change to
filter use and back). Film holding unit has integrated suction. Comes with: suction motor and Schmidt plate heater (12V DC), front cab, adapter plate for mounts. weigth 11 kg.
on request I will give links to:
-color photo august 2003 (combination of two rgb with TP6415 hyp. in the Black Forest)
-photo of the camera
-my homepage and publications list
$2.700 plus shipping (which is ca. $250 to NY with UPS)
I got two cameras (the other one is a Keller 225/250/450) and I have to sell one of them. The camera is in mint condition, collimation is made for eternity - this astrograph is really not comparable to the small format vignetting Celestron Cameras.
I garantee experience and help for handling the camera. This is my first ad in astromart.
Thanks and sorry for my english
