SOLD - THANKS, Glen!
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 -
SOLD -- THANKS!!!
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.)
PLEASE GIVE THIS BIG BOY A HOME!
