Okay. I sold the Losmandy mount I had this sitting on, so it's GOT to go - this is a big, very well-corrected refractor at a fraction of its current price:

• Vixen/Orion VX120 – same as the current Vixen NA120S “Neo-Achromat” – 120mm (4.7”), f6.7. This has the Petzval lens arrangement, which has four lens elements in two groups, providing a very flat, wide field. It’s not a APO, so yes, there’s some color on brighter objects, but it’s much sharper than typical achromats, and there's not nearly as much color as there is with most achros.

This is a large scope – 12 lbs bare naked, with a 43” tube (including the focuser body). This comes with a 2” back, rings, 50mm finderscope bracket, dustcap, and your choice of anonymous metal 50mm straight-through finderscope or a Gary Russell 70mm straight-through finderscope that fits in the 50mm bracket. There are a couple of very small scuffs on the focuser body, which was repainted a non-original blue-gray by a previous owner. The NA120S sells new for $1700 -


I'm also looking for a Borg 76ED or something just as small and light, and either a Sky Patrol II or a Kenko Sky Memo mount.

I'm happy to send more pictures on request. Thanks!

(PLEASE NOTE - the mount and guidescope in the photo were sold separately. The finderscope shown is the 70mm Gary Russell.)
