Stellarview 1010 w/typical Stellarview optics rivaling more expensive refractors, includes: Televue enhanced 2" diagonal, tube rings, mounting plate custom made by Stellarview for this mount, red dot finder, smooth focuser, 1 1/4" to 2" adapter (enabling use of 1.25" oculars), end caps, new Stellarview airline portable case and owner’s manual. Mechanically and optically excellent with no dings or dents whatsoever. This scope can track at high mag with its stable, newer version Meade 500B mount (precision Bronze worm gears, not the aluminum ones) that has been cleaned, re-lubed and adjusted for smooth motion. Mount has setting circles on both axes, manual control for smooth azimuth alignment, elevation control and scale for polar alignment at latitudes from 15 deg to 60 deg, adjustable full-length wooden tripod (far better dampening & stability than original aluminum “tripod”), w/bubble level and accessory shelf. Tripod is in good condition with minor ding that doesn’t affect operation at all. Two 6 lb counter weights and slow motion control knobs included. Couple of minor scuff marks on outside of DEC head ass’y are cosmetic only and don’t affect operation. Mount includes: dual axis motors (DEC and RA); dual axis controller (model 1702) with RA auto tracking; hand paddle controller, 2x, 8x, 16x, and 32x speeds; Model 812 polar scope; owner’s manual. All in good working order. Too many scopes and need the $, so this setup has to go.
