Hello All, ITEMS ARE SOLD
Parting is such sweet sorrow. I have decided to sell my first scope. It is a 5-inch Mak-Cass. It was purchased as a 2nd from Orion in January 2002. Aesthetically, the exterior of the scope is flawless. Close inspection with a bright light reveals some debris on the mirror, which does not seem to hinder performance. A good cleaning is probably all that is required. Views are contrasty; likely due to the 1540mm focal length. Even with lower quality eyepieces, Saturn has shown nice detail at 300x. Included with this OTA are as follows:
1 Celestron Star diagonal
1 Celestron SMA 25mm
1 Nexstar Plossl 10mm
1 6x26mm correct image finder and stalk
1 Orion Shorty Barlow
Caps for scope, diagonal, ep, and finder included. I would like $300 for this outfit. Buyer pays shipping. Paypal preferred, Postal money order accepted. Thanks for your time.
