Here's your chance to get a great scope in time for Mars.
Intes Micro MN66 6" f6 Maksutov Newtonian. These give apo-like views (I just compared this one to my Tak FS102 this morning.) You can check the details at the ITE and APM web sites posted above. The scope is in excellent condition and includes:
Baffled dew shield
JMI focuser with moto-focus
Parallax rotating rings (custom machined to fit the MN)
Losmandy dovetail plate
Original clam shell mounting ring
Orion soft case
Extra 2" - 1.25" adapter
Intes finder scope
The rotating rings make using this a pleasure. Asking $1,350 plus shipping. New, everything would cost around $2,500.If you wonder why I am selling, this scope falls between my 4" Tak apo and fantastic Wilkinson 8" newt in size and something has to go.
Thanks for looking!
