Orion 120 f/5 Short tube optical tube assembly w/2" focuser. Not shown but included are the tube rings and 6x30 finder. Also includes the original lens cap with 2" solar stop down hole and cap for that hole PLUS an additional lens cap with a 3" stop down hole to convert the scope to a 75mm f/8 scope for planetary use, and it does remarkably well in that configuration in terms of resolution of planetary detail, secondary color reduction, contrast enhancement, etc. Wide open it is a wonderful deep sky instrument with very good optics compared to many of the Chinese scopes. Focuser was reworked with UHWM material to greatly increase smoothness of operation and 1 1/2" brass Focus Knobs, Inc. focus knobs have been added. One small chip in the paint (a paint chip not a tube dent) that can barely be seen in the photo below at the top of the tube about mid-length). $250 postage paid in the US.
