This scope has seen nearly no use. It is beautiful as both a visual instrument and a photographic instrument. Here's the deal.
The package includes TeleVue's famous NP101 short focus, very fast 4-element Petzval designed Aprochrmatic refractor. Optics are mint. I am including a Televue Starbeam finder ($200) value with the scope. The mounting ring is also included but normally sold separately. I have mounted it to a Losmandy Dovetail that fits a GM8 saddleplate. There is not a single mark on this scope. It is as new.
The mount is a Takahashi EM10 Temma 2 set atop a takahashi Mahogany tripod. The mount, while lightweight is very stable and with a computer is completely goto. I will also include an extra handpaddle for the mount. Also included is an extra 10 pound counterweight. I has used this mount to carry the NP101, SBIG STV camera, an SBIG ST7E CCD with not problem. I have pictures to prove it! I also have outfitted a Vanguard case to carry the mount (not including tripod) that I will throw in the deal.
I am asking $6,000 for the package and would prefer to sell them together. However, contact me if you are interested in the one and not the other. I am keeping my eyepieces but have several I will sell as well. I also will include a televue, piggyback camera mount. Buyer to pay shipping.
