For Sale: Orion branded Vixen VX102ED APO OTA including:
(I've dropped the price, and now including an Orion glass solar filter as well!)
Vixen 102ED/F6.5 ED OTA (Focal length = 660mm)
Vixen Tube rings and GP dovetail
1.25 and 2.00" adapters
6x30 finder scope and bracket
Caps for both ends
High quality 2" aluminum focusknobs (stock plastic ones included)
Orion Glass Solar Filter (fits dewcap)
This scope gives excellent pin sharp views and is well suited for wide field astrophotography. Focusser knobs have been upgraded to larger 2" aluminum ones and focussing action is very smooth.
There is one small set-screw mark on the top of the OTA (see pics), it looks like a semi-circular mark through the paint, does not affect performance and could easily be touched up if it offends.
Reviews of this scope can be found in the usual places, as well as NOV 1999 issue of S&T, where it was rated highly.
Price is $1000 PLUS shipping in CONUS.
Paypal OK if you cover the fee.
Thanks for looking,
