Recently purchased this fine 8" Schmidt Newtonian. Purportedly this has the UHTC coatings but I cannot be sure (I dont know how to tell!).
In any event this is a very nice scope. After laser collimation it proved to give marvellous rich field views. I used it on a standard CG-5 mount, perfect matchup, nice and steady for visual work. This is a delighful instrument and the only reason I'm selling it is to get a refractor. It is in as-new condition, all set up and ready to rock'n'roll.
Asking $425 plus shipping from CA to your door, insured. Come with everything from the dovetail up, including rings, finder scope etc. Interesting trades considered.
NOVICES PLEASE NOTE: This is a Schmidt NEWTONIAN not a Schmidt Cassegrain!
Clear Skies to All!
