Selling my nice 75mm f/7 UO refractor to finance another purchase. This is a 75mm (rare?) version of the much beloved UO "Build Your Own 80mm Refractor" kit. This OTA has been painted by a previous owner. Paint is in good shape with a couple of scratches. Objective is an air spaced achromat that performs very well. Objective cell threads onto the tube. Dew shield threads onto the objective cell. Length with focuser racked in is 18.75". Weight of OTA is 3.5 pounds. Inside of tube and focuser have been lined with Protostar flocking paper. Tube has one baffle and the focuser has one baffle. Focuser is rack and pinion with a range of 5.5" and it has a focus lock. Comes with 1.25" and 2" adapters for the focuser. I've attached a wooden mount board to allow the OTA to be attached to any 1/4 X 20 tripod screw. I used this scope mostly on a TeleVue UpSwing head. Extras: Glass solar filter; UO 2" mirror diagonal, modified to accept a TeleVue 2" to 1.25" adapter; padded nylon carrying case.
Great portable scope! I just don't use it as much as my other scopes so I'm selling to raise some cash for another goodie.
Selling as a package at this point.
Prefer Money Order. Check is okay but it must clear before I'll ship.
I'll pay USPS shipping and insurance to US buyer. Other shipping arrangements can be made for buyer in another country.
See photo, assuming I'm able to get one attached. <g> Other photos available via e-mail to anyone interested. E-mail with any questions.
Thanks for looking!
