I recently purchased a 10" "planetary Killer" style reflector, so I no longer need this 6" F/12 refractor. Sharp, contrasty views on planets,deep sky,and splits Epsilon Lyra very cleanly. Pinpoint stars,similar in/out diffraction patterns,no astigmatism seen. Six stars in the Trapezium easy! Occasional minimal color (very slight)on the edge of very bright objects only. Achromat lenses are installed in a heavy duty stainless steel(?)adjustable cell, tube outside is unpainted. Inside is painted with ultra flat, I never got around to installing the 3M non-slip material for baffling like the Televue scopes use(you should do this!!!). 2" Synta focuser.Somewhat adjustable wooden visual back for focuser collimation. Has two felt lined rings for mount attachment.Asking $425 shipped CONUS($375 shipped without tube)
Accept Paypal(preferred) or postal money order or bank cashier check.
