Here we go again...round two... Last auction winner couldn't pay so...everyone gets a second chance...!

Auctioning our stunningly beautiful and clean Astro-Physics 178 blue tube Starfire triplet by Roland Christen. Yes, a 7-inch Astro-Physics triple from Rolands hands...!

This is the smallest 7-inch scope available with seven inch diameter tube and rings...in fact, this scope comes with five rings for flexibility of set up and balance...and it balances beautifully at only 28 lbs. for the entire OTA...!!!

This scope fits perfectly in its original case (in great shape). This scope and case fit inside our Volkswagon Passat..! This telescope includes the original objective cap as well as the A/P feather touch upgrade...!!!

This scope is bino-viewable with a Baader Mark V unit and any of the variety of compensators...we do mostly bino-viewing and have loved this scope.

We are only selling as we have moved to a new scope which we also use for binoviewing. Mono viewing is perfect as well for you one eyed wanderers...

The reserve is set much lower than the last auction...we're ready to move this beauty to a new happy owner...so happy bidding...!

Thank you so much
