** SOLD **
This is the Orion version of the Vixen ED114SS 4.5" Apocromat. It is identical to the Vixen version, with the exception of the decals on the OTA. The scope is mint, and gives great views.
The package (will not split) includes a nice aluminum case from Stellarvue (#C6) which holds the OTA with the rings, dovetail, and eyepiece adapters mounted.
I replaced the original 7x50 straight-thru finder with a brand new Orion 6x30 Right-Angle Correct-Image finder (really saved my back). I had to file down the bottom of the Orion bracket base to make it fit the slot on the scope.
I also have a StellarVue Red Dot finder that mounts on an SV dovetail base on the right side of the focuser.
I have replaced the original plastic focuser knobs with some very nice knurled aluminum knobs from Focusknobs.
I bought Borg adapters to use instead of the stock Vixen 1.25" adapters. The Borg setup includes a rotating ring - very useful and much more sturdy and convenient than the Vixen stock setup.
The package includes the following:
- OTA with old and new focusknobs
- Original rings and dovetail
- New Orion 6x30 RACI finder and bracket.
- Original Vixen 7x50 finder bracket.
- StellarVue red dot finder and dovetail base.
- Original Vixen and new Borg eyepiece adapters.
- Stellarvue aluminum case.
If you were to buy this setup new, it would cost over $2,750.
My price is $1,850, shipped UPS Ground, insured, to an address in CONUS.
If you want the mint TeleVue 1.25" Everbrite diagonal with the package, add $150.
