The Orion 120mm f/5 refractor stands alone in the den, seldom used, giving the cats concern and paws(intended). It is unscathed. They'll be glad to see it go. If I outlive my wife, I'll be glad to see them go. I digress. Buy the book.
With the 35mm Panoptic the Double Cluster is a wonder. The moon is a thrill. Cygnus to Sagittarius unfolds like Juliet's robe flowing across the balcony. Romeo polar aligns. Ah, romance consumes us!
Be advised this is NOT a planetary scope. Images are wanting after 100x, but up to that one can see tons. Roland didn't craft this one; maybe my next one! As Popeye says, "I yams what I yam".
It is as it came from Orion. The R/A drive - still in the box. The polar alignment scope is in the mount. Slo-Mo extensions, weights, 6x30 finder, 10mm & 25mm Plossl's, all there eagerly awaiting your excursions into the infinite.
I have added the following:
Meade 2" diagonal $99
Orion Padded Scope Bag $65 - holds scope, mount, tripod
Enough Baader film to make a full aperture filter - sunspot city!
2" T-adapter for those wide field shots a-la Jason Ware - NOT!
Price is $400 + shipping and insurance. I accept PayPal, MO, cleared check. Hurry, the cats and wife are planning a coup! Romeo has lost a counter weight!
