Family health problems/bills are forcing me to part with my prized scope. I have the original prototype for the astromak series scopes. It is an 11 1/2 inch f/5.6 modified maksutov. These ultimate scopes were produced in the 1980's by Jim Riffle of Astro-Works. This scope has an almost 3 degree photographic field of pinpoint stars. It has a special 4X5 camera with huge field flattener lense that will go with the scope. (this item alone was $1500) It has digital setting circles and computer with all Messier objects. It uses Byers research gear for R.A. drive and tangent arm for declination. The scope has built in drive corrector with connector for all SBIG autoguiders. I am the second owner. The mount has usual minor scratches from age/use. The scope works flawlessly and the visual and photographic images are second to none. The mount could easily be modified to computer control if one so desired. The scope also comes with a 76mm apo flourite guide scope. Orignal price for above scope with camera and digital corrector was over $17,000. Asking reduced price of $6000 for this incredible scope. I will not ship this scope, but will meet you half way to deliver or can pick up in Wichita, Ks.
