Excellent scope with great optics and plenty of light gathering capability. The scope is in mint condition - always stored with its lens cap on and in its carry bag. Comes complete with all of it's original equipment (45 angle, 25mm, 9mm, carry bag, finder) plus a Paragon HD-F2 tripod. This is an all around excellent scope and a great to travel with. I have a webpage with pics taken through the scope. Email me for the address. I am upgrading to a large SLR lens so I need to sell this setup.
The Apex's 102mm-diameter (4") optics collect 28% more light than a 90mm scope. The fully multi-coated curved front meniscus lens guarantees the highest possible light transmission. The Maksutov-Cassegrain design collapses its 1300mm (f/12.7) focal length into a tube length less than 12" long. The Apex 102 tube easily pops on and off a telescope mount or camera tripod with the built-in 1/4"-20 adapter plate, and doubles as a high-power telephoto lens. Just mount a 35mm camera body (with optional T-ring) to the T-threads on the eyepiece holder and you're set!
List price: $375. Yours for $300 plus shipping.
