Here you have your choice of 2 Japanese (not Chinese) 80mm achromatic f/11 range telescopes from the 2 leading scope companies. Both scopes are several years old. Both are a cut above almost anything in that size available today, although Vixen currently offers an 80mm tube. Only optical tube, focuser and objective covers are included--no rings, finders, or any other accessories.

The Meade, covered in a stunning deep blue paint is a Model #312. D-80 F=11. With excellant mechanics and optics it gave wonderful views of Jupiter and 3 moons last night, almost resolving the discs of two moons with a 6mm eyepiece. Only $170.

For the slightly more discerning we have in front (in glossy black) the Celestron (Vixen) C80 f=910. With typical superior Vixen fit and finish, the slightly better optics gave slightly cripser views of Jupiter, with a tad less halo effect around this bright object. $190.

Both scopes are older used telescopes and show mild cosmetics evidence of age and use. I stress 'mild.' Shipping $17 in the US, Fedex. Paypal prefered (credit cards accepted there) or cash, check, money order. Will ship anywhere.
