A buyer has expressed strong interest in this but since deals fall
through sometimes I'm leaving this ad up to finish its course. If you
want to be contacted if the deal falls through let me know. -gn.

Original text below:

These currently sell in the $115-129 range new and typically include
a $5 shipping charge. My price $95 includes shipping in CONUS.

This item should be used by A) photographers or b) people with
eyepiece collections that go no higher than 25 mm. If you have say
a 32 to 40 mm 2" eyepiece the laws of optics say you're not going to
get much more with this in place. But if you started your eyepiece
collection with 25 mm and worked down to shorter fl eyepieces and
want a bigger view, this is for you. It will give a 25 mm
eyepiece the field of view of a 40mm eyepiece, or close.
And of course there's always photography, which is
much more forgiving at shorter focal ratios.

I don't know what happens if you use the r/c with 1.25" eyepieces
in the 32-40 mm range. Maybe you get a bit more. Call a shop or ask
someone who knows.

This reducer-corrector is in very good condition, saw no sleeks or
scratches holding it up to a light. I don't use it because I'm lucky
enough to have a 2" eyepiece collection that makes it unncessary.
No damage to the surrounding ring, either. I say very good condition
because I shy away from advertising mint unless it is something
I bought new and never used.

I've used this perhaps 2 or 3 times.
