Televue TV140, serial #15, MINT condition. This is Al Nagler's petzval masterpiece, the largest refractor (140mm) Televue's made. 4 element, air-spaced, flat field. I think approximately 35 of these were made, and they seldom show up for sale, especially in mint condition. Focal Length is 700mm (f5). Because of the distribution of the 4 optical elements, the 16 pound tube is extremely well-balanced and works very well on the Gibralter or similar mount. It's 34 inches long without the dew cap. It's the perfect quick look scope, but this is a 5.5" refractor! See Cloudynights for review and photos.
