Parting out a Tasco/Vixen 8V OTA. Included is a 125 mm f/3.3 spherical mirror in a cell, the front optical window/secondary holder [but no window], and the original metal tube. The tube is in rough shape, and needs to be repainted.

The coating on the mirror is in good shape, with a bit of recent dust, and it has a good spherical surface. The mirror cell and front end piece will also fit any of the older Celestron/Vixen Japanese import tubes for 4.5" (114 mm) reflectors, and some of the more recent 4.5" Tasco tubes.

If you have ever wanted to experiment with an optical window on a 4.5" scope, American Science & Surplus listed a 130 x 2.5 mm window [that would exactly fit this front cell] in their old optical catalog for $10.00. If this item is still available [I have not checked], the part # is 68334.

Asking $25.00 for all, including postage.

Thanks -- Milt
