Have 1-yr old APM MakNewt OTA for sale. A picture of this scope was featured on the APM-US site, and was one of the scopes made by APM for delivery to Thomas Back to his specs for bundling under the TMB name...it was subsequently rejected by TMB as the primary aperture was 152mm instead of 160mm. I have used it for 6 mos for general viewing and some lunar and planetary - it provides outstanding views and high resolution of both planetary and DSO's. The scope is in excellent condition, kept inside at all times when not viewing. There are a couple of streaks in the meniscus coatings caused by use of alcohol when cleaning - these streaks are visible when looking thru meniscus from outside, but are neither visible during viewing nor cause any adverse affects on performance...system includes
better than 1/10 wave front ptv quartz optics (certificate inc.)
backfocus designed to accomodate 35mm prime focus photography
12v cooling fan with controller
JMI dual speed focusser (outstanding)
2" to 1.25" adaptor
will also include a Telrad and a Kendrick 2" Laser Collimator.
asking $1100 + $60 shipping...prefer money order, personal or cashier's check, but will accept Paypal for add. 3%. I am a first-
time Seller here, but have bought several items recently. Selling to buy Nexstar-type scope with GOTO system.
Thanks for looking.
