New Intes Micro "planetary" Maksutov-Newtonian 7.1" f/8
Telescope optimized for contrast with low 13% CO. Views comparable to APO telescopes of equal or 1" smaller size (for fraction of the APO cost), therefore the funny title.
This specimen was evaluated by three independent parties, it rated at 1/7 PV and revealed excellent smoothness.
Avoid waiting times, get a glimpse on planets now before they disappear behind the Sun and get as a bonus official testing reports and free shipping to you.
I pre-ordered this scope some times ago, felt obliged to honor my order with the dealer and expect its arrival in 1-3 weeks (air cargo). For personal reasons, I do not want the scope at this specific time.
I can immediately ship to you after its arrival or inspect it first.
I am asking $1999 with free shipping in CONUS. If you wish an appropriate mount, I have minimally used EQ-6 for $850 and $25 shipping.
Thanks for looking. Let's see whether I will get a new record on ad views ;-)
