Please note right off the bat that for now I'm keeping this to a local pick-up/meet. Willing to drive reasonable distance from NW Chicago suburbs. If no takers, will repost later.
I *just* bought this pristine FS102 off a fellow Astromarter two months ago and all it's done is whet my appetite so now I'm trying to fund an upgrade to an FS128. Thanks to the loving care of previous owner the OTA is indistinguishable from brand-new, and I've made sure it has stayed that way. The objective has a few normal dust specks that I didn’t remove since they don’t interfere with viewing.
The CG5 mount was bought new shortly afterward. It’s the new version with go-to and handles the 102 easily (I didn't get the chance to test the go-to, but motors work fine). Anyone looking for an instant apo set-up could hardly go wrong.
The package includes:
- FS102 OTA without a mark on it.
- Tak tube ring
- Rigel Quickfinder
- WO 2” diagonal
- Temba padded carry case, long enough to store OTA with diagonal attached
- Celestron CG5gt mount/tripod
- Losmandy universal adapter plate
Would strongly prefer to sell as complete package, but if I can find local buyer for OTA that would work too.
Entire package: $2600.
OTA/finder/tube ring/case: $1850. With diagonal $1900.
Prices are firm. No trades. I accept certified bank check or cash; also Paypal if that makes it easier (add 2.7% if using CC).
I will price/post the mount & accessories later if the OTA sells by itself. I have more pics available to interested parties. Also be advised I can’t check email until I get home, usually about 3pm CST. As always, serious inquiries only, please.
