This tremendous refractor will be a welcome addition to anyone's arsenal of optics. It has an f-ratio of 6.7, focal length of 800mm and an overall length of 42". The VX120 utilizes a 4-element, 2-group lens assembly — a “neo-achromat.” The extra doublet provides added color correction and field flattening, for a truer, more pleasing image. Optics have full anti-reflection coatings.
Please note this is the OTA ONLY (Losmandy is NOT included) plus the following accessories:
* 1.25" visual back
* T camera adapter for unknown model of camera
* 2" visual back
* Celestron 45 degree erecting diagonal, 1.25" format
* GTO (Hands on Optics) 2" 90 degree Star Diagonal w/ 1.25" adapter
* 2 sets of tube rings ((4 rings) 1 for Hargreaves)
* "Hargreaves Strut" as per Sky and Telescope, Sept 2001 pg. 114. You WILL need these for a GP EQ mount or its clones - AND it works!
* 7x50mm finder with original Vixen 6 point mount
* "X-Y" finder mount in addition to above
* Rack and pinion focuser with focus lock
* Orion Deluxe Padded carrying case
* All lens covers
* OTA dew shield
* Original Orion carton and packing materials
All of this equipment has had very little use, maybe 5-6 outings max with most of those to my front yard. It's all in near mint condition. The one exception would be scratches on the tube of the finder from the original 6 point mount. The newer finder mount is MUCH better.
I have $2K in this package - and its all mint. Asking $1195.00. plus shipping. I am in Aurora Colorado. I can accept PayPal, Money Orders and Bank checks. I will take personal checks but they will have to clear before I ship it out.
I am looking to get into a 9.25-11 inch Cassegrian/Catadioptric Reflector - so I will entertain trade offers.
PLEASE ASK FOR OTHER PHOTOS.
