Splendid 9 inch (228-mm) F/9 APO refractor. This Triplet Objective refractor is made by APM telescopes TMB design and is a proven performer approaching four years old. I have reached the “Trade Down” age and would like to trade it for a smaller TMB, AP or Takahashi refractor; at least 6 inches and preferably 7 inches F/6 to 8 and an additional $12K more or less depending on what you have.
My telescope is easily carried on an AP 1200 mount or a Parallax HD 150. I could sell a new HD 150 GOTO with it if requested.
The scope comes with an excellent wooden box for shipping, storage and safe keeping. It is easily collimated,has excellent optics and the necessary extras including a RoboFocus for imaging.
My Web site shows the scope and images; the SF Bay Area seeing is seldom better than mediocre, so you can see from my images that it is a fine performer.
Contact me for my web site where you can view the scope and see its images.
If you are a refractor person this is a fine chance to move up at a fair cost and trade.
