Televue Genesis SDF with Carton E.Q.
I have spent the last five years collecting this original
setup. But now am somewhat discouraged by lack of observing
time and place here in Washington.
Here is what I have.
1. Televue Genesis SDF (4 inch, fluorite, 540mm f.l.) Serial #2763
Sent back to TV five years ago for routine cleaning and collimation.
Optically and cosmetically pristine.
w. original hard case & keys.
2 inch focuser and diagonal (not the new enhanced version)
Sliding dew cap and metal screw-on cover.
As Al says: "all tack-sharp and buttery smooth".
2. Carton (original 'Televue Systems') mount. (Complete)
w/ original box, packing, and instructions.
Slow-motion cables and counter-weight.
Polar axis scope.
It is solid and "like new", but still portable.
It stands on TV Gibraltar ash legs! (I sold the head but
retained the legs!)
An Apogee RA drive is included, and tracks nicely (but this
is not a goto setup).
(I sold the original TV clamshell tube ring when I found
the Carton EQ.)
3. I also have an original TV hard eyepiece case which I would
include for a serious buyer. A nice touch.
I have $2550 invested.
To break this up would be a shame.
Any reasonable offer over $2250 + shipping will be considered.
This deserves a picture, but I am not yet digitized.
Optically and mechanically as new. A treat for Televue lovers.
I do not want to split this up. It belongs together,
but I will consider serious offers.
