5 inch F/5 Short Tube Refractor (29.5 inches long) with built-in 2.5 inch diagonal and 1 1/4 inch Rack and Pinion focuser. May be Jaegers 5 inch Richest Field Lens, but no markings on cell and I am third owner. Mount is an Edmund Scientific medium duty refractor mount on a 4 foot pier with legs, no counterweights included. Mount is heavy enough to hold a 6 inch reflector if pier is cut down. 50 mm finder scope with right angle prism.
5 inch lens has small chip in the surface of one element probably from improper cleaning (previous owner did it). Does not seem to affect optical performance, which is good for a 1970's vintage lens. Good for wide field views, may also be used as a super finder for a large observatory mounted dob, but there is some color error consistent with the vintage glass and the F number. Mount has been repainted and looks good, but aluminum telescope tube shows some wear.
Pictures available upon request.
Asking $200 or reasonable offer for telescope and mount, pick up only in the New York Metro Area. Willing to accept Cash, Check or Money Order.
