Here is a one-of-a-kind modified RKE. It may be used as a normal 1.25” short telescope or as a 21X spotting scope. The spotting scope end is a Bausch and Lomb 6/30 military binocular half. The 1.25” focuser is a Vixen unit. It works very well either way – the interface is nicely machined and the two end-pieces thread on and off. I interferometrically tested the RKE objective and it is 0.03 waves RMS. Overall performance is great and it stands high magnification well – it has a nearly perfect star test but with normal secondary color. The objective does have a few short scratches but these are minor and do not affect performance in any way. The tube has a tripod block and is very well baffled and blackened. $125 includes UPS ground.
