Perfect Starmaster 11" f/4.55 Shorty ELT received new in May, 2003. It is indistinguishable from a brand new scope in all respects--no marks, rubs, scratches, dings, etc. The superb Zambuto mirror is pristine and views are crisp and highly resolved. The scope's design allows for easy portability, quick set-up and VIEWING WHILE SEATED--making for a far more relaxing session than if having to stand. Has all the standard features--light shroud, Ridel finder, rubber armored truss poles silky smooth movement---plus these options:
- Feathertouch focuser
- Heated secondary
- Encoder hardware installed by Rick (just add your own encoders and computer if desired)
Also included are the primary mirror certification signed by Carl Z. and all the original shipping boxes(also in perfect condition).
I have decided to sell the scope because my skies are just too light polluted west of Boston to support a large aperture scope.
Price new was $3780. I'm offering the Starmaster at a substantial discount and with no wait.
$2850 plus 50% of actual shipping costs (your share estimated at $75).
