These EPs are all in very good condition, I want to sell them as a set. The 22mm Nagler gives you the wide 82 degree space-walk views, the TV 8-24mm is wonderful to use for casual zoom-scanning of the moon, and the Nagler 3-6mm zoom provides the high quality high-magnification zoom views which are good enough to let you retire 2 or 3 of your current fixed EPs. The 2” PowerMate is the real workhorse of the set, used with the 2”to1.25” reducer it will provide you with undistorted 2x magnification for all of your other EPs. It's a beautiful piece of optics in its own right. I highly recommend the 2" PowerMate for anyone with a 2” focuser, whether or not you buy this one. It allows each of your expensive Naglers to do double duty at a higher 2x magnification without any deterioration of performance as far as I could detect, plus it maintains the AFOV and eye relief of the EP for comfortable viewing.

There’s a lot of synergy to be realized by keeping these 4 EPs together as a set they are the basis of a fine small collection.

TeleVue 2x Powermate 2"
Nagler 22mm Type 4
Televue 3-6mm zoom
Televue 8-24 zoom; NON-click stop (universal zoom) version !
2”to1.25” reducer/EP connector

All optics appear to me to be in perfect condition. They have never been cleaned nor have they needed it. I've found some hobbiests to be unexpectedly sensitive about cosmetic blemishes which don't affect performance and whihc wouldn't bother me a bit. If for any reason you don't find any of the EPs to be acceptable as described, you may return them all immediately for a full refund. Each EP comes with endcaps and paperwork in its original box. These items cost me about $1,400. None of them have been used more than 5 or 6 times from my back porch and they have been meticulously cared for. Read my rating to see comments on previous similar tranactions during my journey through the hobby of astronomy.

The price for these 4 EPs and the reducer is $1,100 firm, payment in US Postal Money Orders or cashiers check drawn on a local bank in the buyer's city. On receipt of payment I will ship the EPs USPS insured 3-day Priority mail. I will sell to the first firm offer for the entire amount, no reductions.

Thanks for looking,

(I also have an ad for a Binovue with 3 sets of dual EPs in the binoviewer classifieds, and an ad for a like-new TV np 101 with a UniStar Deluxe head and Bogen 475 tripod in the refractor classifieds.).
