Optical tube with rings and new dovetail bar to fit Vixen/CG5 type mounts. Objective lens caps included. Lens coatings are good, optical performance is typical of several Chinese refractors I have examined.

The paint had been somewhat scratched up by the previous owner. I have tried to touch up the scratches as best I could. The touch-ups are definitely noticeable on close inspection.

This OTA has an adjustable lens cell, and I've collimated it as critically as I can. The focuser has been disassembled, cleaned and relubed. The lens elements have been edge blackened.

The 2" Vernonscope mirror diagonal is the old style. I'd classify its condition as "good" - not pristine. It may be slightly out of alignment because the collimation looks a bit different with the diagonal in place. Includes 1.25" adapter and cap plug.

The slow f/ratio and 2" diagonal make it a great scope for wide field viewing without needing premium 2" eyepieces. Works well on planets up to around 200x, but that's about it.

NOTE: No finderscope or eyepieces are included.

I want to sell these together for $250 + $15 CONUS shipping. PayPal OK. If paid by money order or check I will split shipping ($7.50).
