ARIES 10" f/13.5 with secondary focuser + 2" nonrotatable helicalfocuser , Sitalmirrors + multicoated Meniscuslens, big 60 mm finderbracket, wooden transport case , Vixen Atlux C11 single wide Tubering, interf. testreport showing 1/8 p.t.v, 1/50 RMS and 98.4 % Strehl. Afterwards has been installed 12 volt cooling fans on front and rear tube. At this Mak the secondary mirror and primary mirror can be aligned with collimation screws.
Correspondance to Aries the optical system is Ion Beam figured .

It is a used Telescope, from 10 new we sold in totalover the years , this one is the first we took back in trade for resale. It was used all the years in a german public observatory who swwitched now for much larger aperture.

The overal condition is good but with clear used signes. All mechanics working same fine as on first day, so do the optics. The Optics has been fully cleaned and new collimated.
The main mirror has from first day on on coated surface a little bubble which does not degrade or effect the performance at all.

The telescope comes in original woodenbox and with testreport. The weight of the telescope is about 25 kg.

Because its a used telescope , european high bidders get it taxfree , about other countrys we do not know how your customs handling used telescopes, so inform your self upfront.

roughly estimated shipping cost inside of Euro US $ 150 and for USA and Asia roughly about US $ 400

The Telescope is build like the old Zeiss Meniscas 180 for a trouble free live time use , with no compromisse . If you look for perfection and don't care about the most lightweight telescopes, then here is your way to go.

Todays new cost would be more then $ 15,000

good lucck
