Orion Sky View Deluxe 4.5" OTA, including 6x30 finder, tube rings, all dust caps, and manual. This telescope is in excellent condition. I am the original owner; it has been lovingly maintained for about 3 years. Unfortunately, it has seen very little starlight since I upgraded to a larger scope about a year ago. During that time, it has been carefully stored in a padded Orion case, safe from dust and harm.
The scope is an f/8 Newtonian with a 900mm focal length. It does a nice job on the planets and brighter deep-space objects like the Messiers. I would describe it as "nearly new," except for two modifications (improvements) that I have made: The mirror has been center-marked with a target for a laser collimator, and I have added a dovetail base for an Orion 1x EZ-finder. (The EZ-finder itself is not for sale.) Additional photos are available upon request.
I'm asking $65.00 plus shipping for this scope. (The mount shown in the photo is not for sale.)
Also available: Orion Glass Solar filter for this scope. (See ad #182609 under Filters, Finders, & Misc. for details.) If you buy both together, I'll take $10.00 off the total price. [Solar filter is SOLD.]
I will ship the scope within one business day of receiving a money order or cashier’s check. I will accept personal checks, but will delay shipment for one week to give them time to clear the bank. Sorry, no international shipments. Please email me with any other questions. Thanks!
