I’ve decided to physically downsize my equipment, so I’d like to sell or trade some Grade-A stuff. Here’s what I’ve got:
• Vixen 70mm f5.7 guidescope and bracket. This has the coolest adjustment mechanism I’ve ever seen – only 2 knobs to turn, and perfectly stable. SOLD - Thanks, Bob!
See my other ads for info on more items for sale:
• Vixen/Orion 90mm (3.5”) Fluorite APO refractor, f9. Todd Gross called it “Unbelievable." A new FL80 – that’s 80, not 90 – is about $1700. I’m asking $1200 shipped in CONUS.
• Vixen/Orion VX120 – same as the current Vixen NA120S “Neo-Achromat” – 120mm (4.7”), f6.7. The NA120S sells new for $1700; I’m asking $850 shipped in CONUS.
• Losmandy/Celestron G-9 mount. Made for Celestron by Losmandy. Asking $1100, shipping negotiable.
o Losmandy DUP – cosmetically challenged, due to scraping the plate while sawing off a frozen bolt (Ouch!), but totally functional. $50 shipped CONUS.
o Vixen tube ring plate, part no. AM-AD-3548 – mounts to rings to give a very stable mount for a guidescope, camera, etc. Sold new for $40; $35 shipped CONUS.
o Gary Russell 70mm straight-through finderscope – made to fit in a 50mm finderscope bracket. EP with reticle. $45 shipped CONUS.
I’m willing to negotiate a price for more than one item – especially if they’re the big-ticket items.
I’m also seeking a smaller APO – a Sky 90, Traveler, or something along that line – and a Takahashi Sky Patrol II eq mount or something similar. I’d be very happy to talk about a trade. Thanks!
Clear Skies (finally!)
