For Sale: Tele Vue Genesis f/5 refractor (non-sdf)
With a serial number of 1027, this is one of the first Genesis refractors off the line. It’s a 4” f/5 Petzval design, which uses four lenses in two groups to provide a nearly 5 degree flat field of view…perfect for astrophotography. The previous owner used it for this purpose and reported excellent results. He also had the scope collimated and cleaned by Televue last year. I’ve had the scope since early summer and it's fabulous, but I don’t have the money to give it the EQ mount it deserves for higher power work.
It has the screw-on dew shield and lens cover, a fine 2” rack and pinion focuser with a TV diagonal (they didn’t make Everbrites back then, but it’s very nice) and a 1.25” adapter and a plug to keep the system clean from that end. The clamshell is the original version without any attachment points for accessories. I have added one to screw in a Rigel Qwikfinder base. The base and Qwikfinder unit is included. The scope also includes a great-condition TV hard case (grey color) and a hand-made Baader Solar filter that fits over the dew shield for solar viewing. The mount in the picture is not included.
I also have a TV 4x powermate and TV 32mm wide field that I will list after this sale...ask for a package deal if interested!
