Selling a 80mm f3.75 refractor / finder ... at least I believe that's correct. I received this several years ago in trade for computer parts. Looks like an ATM project as the scope body is made from PVC and a plastic / composite focuser (the pinion rod and gear are metal). I've measured the focal length at approx 300mm. The front of the lens is 90mm and the clear aperature at the back is approx 80mm. It has a mounting block with a std 1/4" x 20 threaded hole to fit most any photo tripod. Included is a 1.25" 45 degree diagonal, a 25mm Meade MA eyepiece and end caps for the scope. The focuser itself is 2" with a 1.25" adaptor - both have micro baffles on the inside edges. The scope, diag and eyepiece together weigh just over 3 lbs. Optically it's pretty good - actually showing less CA during the daytime. I've viewed birds at 75x - any more and the image starts getting fuzzy. With the included eyepiece it makes a nice 12x finder.

I've used this as a travel scope, large finder and a first scope for my son. He wants something bigger / better now.

Asking $77 (CONUS shipping included). PayPal(3%) or money orders preferred.

Thanks for looking.
