This is a nice MN56, which I bought from a fellow astromarter about a year ago. The optical test report shows 1/6 ptv wavefront error tested April 18, 2002 by Mike Palermiti of ITE. Original test report and instructions will be included. This has the 2" focuser with 1.25" adapter. Caps for focuser and front lense included.
The scope is in very good condition, although the finder scope is "challeged" due to set screw marks. I think the previous owner cleaned the front lens more than needed and you can see very fine hair line scratches in the coatings. These are NOT deep scratches. I called ITE about these after I received the scope, and they said there would be no optical degradation, and once I viewed thru the scope I agreed. The scope gives crisp, clean views. I am only selling it to finance a smaller, more portable refractor set up. I will include the dove tail in the picture if you want it and of course the clam shell.
I am asking $425, shipped and insured to you in the cont. US. Paypal is fine (will split the 3% up charge) or cashiers check or money order. Personnel check ok after clearing. Please email any questions.
Keep lookin up!
