I am selling my Astro-Physics 155EDFS. I am the original owner, and took delivery in 1996. The OTA is in like-new condition, and has the smooth white paint job, and 2.7" focuser. I have added a JMI Motofocus with digital read-out, and also have an older (ca. 1991) 0.75x reducer/flattener for 35mm, drawtube extension, 2" adapter and 1 1/4" adapter (with compression rings). Includes AP hinged tube rings, AP quick-release finder bracket, and AP foam-padded hardwood storage case. I will also include an Orion nickel-glass solar filter and an Apogee 12x60 finder.
These scopes are worth the two year wait, but you don't have to wait if you take this one off my hands. If you have even the slightest interest in an instrument like this, then you know the drill.
Best offer over $5700 US. You pay shipping and insurance. I am in Los Angeles CA, in case you'd rather consider local pickup, or wish to see it before making an offer.
Reason for selling: I want an aperture upgrade, but 9-10" refractors are not very practical on many different levels. I need the proceeds from this sale to get into a 9 or 10" Mak, or a Mewlon.
