This is a beautiful Star 130 Super ED Doublet Apochromat. Only a limited quantity of these fine telescopes was made in the early 1990’s. Super ED glass provides superior corrections compared to standard ED and is as good or better than Fluorite lenses! I did a side by side with a Tak 128 and the AP was a clear winner. If you are looking for a scope that offers superb planetary and lunar performance you will be amazed with the views in this instrument. The bright high-resolution images reveal shadow and detail on Jupiter and Saturn that are just exquisite. The Moon can take all of your observing time because there is such a wealth of detail. Stars are tack sharp. Global clusters, double stars and nebula are great! This AP is in excellent condition and comes with the super smooth 2.7” focuser, fitted carrying case, 9X50 Orion finder on the AP Quick Release finder bracket, and tube rings. The serial number on the objective is 130ED10.
I am selling this scope to upgrade to a 6” AP. The price is $3,600.00 and includes insured CNUS shipping. I will accept payment by Pay Pal, bank check or postal money order.
