Televue Genesis SDF with Carton E.Q.
I have spent the last ten years collecting this original setup.
But now am somewhat discouraged by lack of observing time and
location here in Washington.
Here is what I have.
1. Televue Genesis SDF (4 inch, fluorite, 540mm f.l.) Serial #2763
Sent back to TV five years ago for routine cleaning and collimation.
Optically and cosmetically pristine. (white tube)
w. original hard case & keys.
2 inch focuser and diagonal (not the new enhanced version)
Sliding dew cap and metal screw-on cover.
+ full aperture Solar filter
As Al says: "all tack-sharp and buttery smooth".
2. Carton (original 'Televue Systems') mount. (Complete)
w/ original box, packing, and instructions.
Slow-motion cables and counter-weight.
Polar axis scope w/ reticle.
Solid and "like new", but still portable.
It stands on TV Gibraltar ash legs! (I sold the head but retained the legs!)
An Apogee RA drive is included, and tracks nicely (but this is not a
3. I also have an original TV hard eyepiece case which I would include
for a serious buyer. A nice touch.
I have $2800 invested.
To break this up would be a shame.
Any reasonable offer + shipping will be considered.
This deserves a picture, but I am not yet digitized.
Optically and mechanically as new. A treat for Televue lovers.
I do not want to split this up. It belongs together.
Prefer NW buyer and will travel to deliver (within reason).
If a buyer were interested, I have 2.5mm, 5mm, 11mm T6s, and a 24mm Panoptic... (All w/ caps and boxes)
