For sale is my dream telescope kit containing:

12.5" f/6 Zambuto primary
- Pyrex, 75.2" f.l., 1.375" thick, Nova "protected aluminum" coating
Astrosystems Telekit
- Manufactured specifically to match this Zambuto mirror
- Untouched. Assemble the way YOU want it.
Starlight Feathertouch focuser
- 2" diameter, 1.5" travel with brake and compression ring
- Includes flat base for use with Telekit
Protostar quartz secondary
- 2.14" minor axis, enhanced aluminum coating

All components are brand new, completely unused and remain in their original packaging.

The Zambuto primary is pristine and remains in the original shipping box. The coating is flawless. Once a serious buyer is ready to make the purchase I can take a high resolution photo of the inscribed serial number and send it to Carl Zambuto to verify authenticity. All original paperwork is included.

The Telekit is unassembled and ready for you to finish/customize in any way you please. The only thing you might need to replace is the epoxy. It's still liquid but I don't know if it's usable and don't want to break the seal on the containers. All original paperwork is included.

The Feathertouch focuser is unused, in mint condition and has no scratches or scuffs. It includes the correct base plate for mounting on the Telekit.

The Protostar ULS quartz secondary is pristine and remains in the original wrap. The enhanced aluminum coating is in perfect condition. Also included is the original paperwork including interferometric data sheet. Check the interferogram for yourself, this is a superb mirror.


Each of these manufacturers has built a reputation that speaks for itself. This is your chance to purchase a brand new telescope kit at a discount and without spending a year on a waiting list.

Buyer pays shipping via USPS Priority Mail and insurance is mandatory. Paypal is accepted but buyer pays the 2.9% fee. Local pickup is fine if you are in the Tacoma, WA area.

I am happy to directly email the original high resolution photos to any interested buyers that want to see more detail than is shown on the photos uploaded here. If you have any questions at all, let me know and I am happy to answer them.

Buyer also has option to buy the following if interested:

$25 - 2" -> 1.25" compression ring eyepiece adapter for use with Feathertouch focuser
$50 - Desert Storm bag telescope cover - DSS-II - 90"x90"
$TBD - Collimation kit
