For sale. Getting out of the hobby due to a lack of interest. This is a good quick-setup visual observing package for moon, planetary and pretty respectable on DSO's, too. For sale as package only. If you're interested in experimenting with a Chinese refractor or a binoviewer or both together this is a pretty cheap way to do it. Note this is an alt-az mount.
Skywatcher 6" f/8 refractor with stock finder and end caps mounted on a home-made alt-az mount based on a Meade adjustable-height field tripod. My workmanship on the wood parts is a little crude in fit and finish, but mount is solid as a rock and smooth with Ebony Star/Teflon bearings. Refractor has 1.5" aluminum focuser knobs and a Rigel Quickfinder with extra base.
