Many requests to split and/ or offers to trade push me to offer a less expensive alternative: Traveller as described below without AP Maxbright.
For sale: A cosmetically challenged, but optically superb AP Traveller. Cosmetic blems are several scuffs in the paint (previous owner used it as a guide scope), two scuffs on the dew shield, and two round chips in the paint where a too-long screw through the ring marred the paint.
That's the bad news, the good news is that this scope displays APs typical superb optics. Star tests at > 600X show perfect airy disk with no false color. Scope includes rings, AP sliding dovetail to mount your choice of finder to, AP carry case, 3" extension tube.
Offered at $3000
