For Sale: Selling my harldy 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. I'm selling it to finance a larger scope. This is the original syle with fixed trusses and secondary cage. The secondary cage has been upgraded to the newer oak version and looks just like the current ELT. It has the complete Sky Commander package, including dewshield, encoders and wiring harness. It includes a Secondary Dew Heater with wiring harness and 12v gel cell rechargable battery for the Rigel Quickfinder. It has been upgraded to include a Feathertouch focuser. The retail price for this scope with all the goodies is $4020, not to mention at minimum a three month wait. You can have it today for more than a 25% discount. I'm selling it for $2900. I will deliver it or meet you anywhere within 200 miles of Kansas City, or will ship it UPS insured for $175. The mirror is an excellent Zambuta. Specs available upon request.
Also availabe is a Tom Ozypowski Compact Platform that works wonderfully with the 12.5" EL. List price delivered is $1020. Will sell for $750. Add $100 for UPS delivery and insurance.
Thanks and keep looking up,
