While it pains me greatly to consider losing this instrument, I'm selling this rare and absolutely gorgeous brass TV-85B to fund another project. Purchased new in May of 2001, it has compression ring fittings and is in mint condition with beautiful brass tube, draw tube and hardware. My observing partner refers to it as "The Aireloom". Optics of absolute highest quality and have never been cleaned! This instrument will hold very high power for incredible planetary viewing. Someone gets lucky with this one!
Sale includes brass optical tube with retractable black anodized alum dew shield, focuser housing and TV tube ring, TV case, all caps and signed manual. Paid $2250 for above. Selling in essentially the same condition for $1750 or best reasonable offer.
Pictures available tonight. Many thanks for considering!
