<<<I received the Burgess Optical super upgrade 2" Diagonal and it will be included with this scope>>>
Selling to help pay for C-11 OTA just purchased from Astromart ad.
This 5", f8 achromat has excellent optics and is truly "like new". For 5" aperture, it is excellent on dso's and provides high resolution on Jupiter and Saturn. Takes 250x easily with no image breakdown. I did not notice any false color on Jupiter and Saturn, but did on Venus. Smooth focuser. Will forward fine-focuser when received. << 2" Diagonal upgrade received 6-3-04>>>
1278 OTA with custom hard case, tube rings and dovetail, dust cover, finder scope and rings, 1.25'' diagonal and 2" diagonal upgrade and fine focuser shipped to buyer when I receive it:
$465.00 including FedEx shipping (CONUS)
I accept cashier's check or money order. Sorry - No Paypal.
