OTA in excellent condition. Internal moving Astro-sital (zerodur) mirror with enhanced coatings, fully multi-coated meniscus and mirror rated at 1/8 wave. The design has extra baffles to improve contrast and prevent light loss (not found on regular maks). Star test shows concentric equal diffraction rings inside and outside of focus. The double cluster revealed varying star spectra on an inky black back-drop, typical of Apo performance. The optics on the 8X40 finder are the best I've ever seen! Metal dew shield is included as well as the 1.25" visual back and Lomo 25mm plossl, Tel-Rad base and end caps. SCT rear cell accepts all SCT accessories.
This scope is exceptional on the CG-4-5 mounts and has dovetail and sliding dovetail bar for other mounts. The advertised new price is $799.00. $599.00 includes shipping by UPS ground in original packing material. Will trade even for a 31mm Nagler type V in excellent condition for the OTA. If you need the CG-5 mount it can be included. The CG-5 has been carefully de-burred, cleaned and re-lubed with lithium and is very smooth on both axes. Has RA drive, battery pack and controller. Astele 133.5 and up-graded CG-5 together $875.00 includes shipping. Paypal 2.5%. Selling to make room for another project!
