This is an almost like new Vixen made 102mm refractor, with just about perfect optics, and in excellent mechanical condtion. Color free on all but the very brightest objects. Presents exquisite in-focus airy disk images. It has a 1.25 inch focuser, and comes with finder, rings, CG5 dovetail, and lens cap. The only way you will do better in a 4" scope is to spend 3 times the money for an APO, and even then, you won't beat it by much. Superb scope. $375 + Shipping.
I want a very compact, but larger aperture scope for car trips, so if you have an 8" SCT with Vixen style dovetail that you would like to trade, I can either go a couple hundred dollars plus the Vixen, or I can trade the Vixen and include a Burgess Optical 2" Crayford focuser with adaptor plate for the Vixen OTA (this focuser is NOT included in the above price). On trade, we each pay shipping on our end, yes?
Thanks for looking.
