This scope is SOLD and on the way!!!flawless! Optically, aesthetically, in every way it is perfect. "LNIB" It is only because of personal finance issues that I am selling this as I've hardly even had a chance to play with it!
I'm selling this with all original accesories included (45deg erecting prism/26mm SP ep/8x21 finder/paperwork all lens caps and a bolt case)and adding an electric focuser and brand new (3/04) Pelican hard case. This case is the industry standard for ruggedness; airline-worthy (maybe gorilla-worthy) and it floats!
The original focusing knob and tools to switch it out are included as well as a spare battery for the electric focuser.
The ETX 90 is legendary, of course, and this is the spotting scope version and it is awesome. Super-sharp, without the CA issues of refractors. This is a perfect choice for terrestrial viewing and photography, birding, digiscoping, etc. With the included Meade 26mm Super-Plossl ep this scope (1250mmFL)will provide 48X and since it uses standard 1.25 ep's the options are wide open for accessories and other powers. The scope includes two standard 1/4-20 tripod mounting threads.
* The original box as shown is available (no charge, of course), but its up to the buyer as it may require seperate shipping.
*Note that I will be offering a few related accessories for sale seperately. please check my other listings.
*Disregard the home address, I'm working in San Diego at the moment.
*Note: I bought the case and some other pieces brand new in March '04. I bought the scope in Feb '04 however, I did not buy the scope brand new...I bought from the very careful and meticulous original owner. I think the scope is about a year old, but as stated, you can't possibly tell it. I didn't want anyone to mis-understand.
The scope/focuser/pelican case add up to 600 retail. I will sell the set for $310 + actual shipping from 92106 no "handling" charge. PayPal preferred No upcharge
