This is an Intes MK65 OTA circa '94 from JMI. Maksutov 150/1500. Serial #4.244 (JMI may still retain records on these scopes if you wish to research it.)

It includes the original Intes diagonal/focuser (helical 1.25"), 6x30 straight through finder, camera adapter w/ helical focus, handle, tripod mounting bracket, all caps, covers and original case.

Additionally, it comes with the optional JMI 1.25" NGF focuser, JMI piggy back camera bracket, a JMI adaptor for the Vixen GP mount and a couple of threaded ring adaptors once offered by JMI for various Meade and Celestron accesories.

The scope has been treated well. The optics are very good and the scope maintains collimation well. The meniscus has never been cleaned. The dust on it does not bother me and I will not be cleaning it prior to shipping. The OTA finish is good showing moderate wear for 8 years of use. The back focus has been set up for visual use with the JMI focuser + diagonal and also works with the helical focuser screwed out nearly all the way. However, backfocus will need to be altered should you wish to use the camera adaptor. This *might* then limit the eyepieces you could use with the JMI focuser. (My eyepieces for this scope are Clave's and UO's and I have also used TeleVue, Celeston, Meade and off brands.) I am the original owner.

$650.00 obo. $650.00 includes shipping to lower 48. Will take PayPal plus the percentage.

Thanks for checking this out! Sorry, no pix.
