I need to reduce my telescope arsenal by three very nice scopes. This is the second very nice scope:
An Intes MK67 Maksutov-Cassegrain 150mm (6") aperture F12 1800mm fl with upgraded Starlight Instruments Feather Touch focuser. This focuser is much nicer than the stock crayford. The OTA finish is mint. The only item that shows signs of wear is the mounting block (see photo). Search the internet for reviews.
This package includes:
- Primary mirror is pyrex aluminized and overcoated
- Meniscus lens is BK-7 glass MC on both sides w/CO of 50mm
- Tube length is 17" and weighs 9.6lbs
- 2" Starlight Instruments Feather Touch focuser
- 2 to 1 1/4 eyepiece/diagonal adapter with brass compression ring
- 7x35 Finderscope 8 degree FOV, bracket and caps
- an optional UO 8x40 RA finder ($40)
- Kendrick Flexible Dew Shield
- Metal dust cap
- Carrying handle
- Padded case
- A glass filter (not shown)
No tube rings or dovetail included, but mounting block is threaded for 1/4 and 3/8 tripod bolts.
Price: $800 + shipping CONUS only. Payment: PayPal (plus 3% fee), MO and checks (from long term Astromarters). The price reflect the added cost of an upgraded focuser (+$300).
Thanks for looking. Don
