Selling my hardly used 12.5" EL F/5.0 by Starmaster. This was the first production model (Carl Zambuto has the original prototype) to see first light in January, 2000. It's my backup scope to my 18" Starmaster. I'm selling it to finance a larger scope. This is the original style with rigid trusses and secondary cage. The secondary cage has been updated to the oak version and looks just like the current ELT model. It has the complete Sky Commander package, including dewshield and encoders. it has a Secondary Dew Heater with wiring harness. It comes with a Kendrick heater for the Rigel Quickfinder. It's been upgraded to include a Feathertouch focuser. It has a gel cell battery to run the heaters. Included is a homemade Baader Solar filter. The retail price for all the goodies is $4040, plus a three month wait. You can have it now and take advantage of a 20% discount. The whole package for $3200. I will deliver it anywhere within 200 miles of Kansas City, or can ship it UPS insured for $175. Or, it can be delivered to the Winter Star Party.
Also available is a Tom Ozypowski Compact Platform that works wonderfully with the 12.5" EL. List price is $925. Will sell for $800. Shipping and insurance is $100.
The mirror is an excellent Zambuto. Specs available upon request. Any questions will be answered, as well.
Thanks, and keep looking up,
