I am offering my pristine 14.5" Starmaster (Hybrid model) with the following standard features, upgrades, and add-ons:
- Zambuto 14.5" mirror, Strehl .984, 1/17 pv wave, wavefront RMS 1/50 (full spec sheet)
- full GOTO/tracking, SkyCommander DSCs
- super-rigid Hybrid structure that holds collimation perfectly at any position
- upgraded Antares 1/30th wave secondary, fused silica version (amazingly nice)
- Feathertouch focuser
- like-new white Scopecoat cover
- wheelbarrow handles
- secondary heater and wiring harness (not installed yet)
- 3 batteries w/ charger
- all other standard equipment for this scope as offered by Starmaster Telescopes
- other odds and ends I'm probably forgetting
Priced to sell complete at $5395, or best reasonable offer. (Add in a like-new Paracorr that I have for $200. Add in a 2" Kendrick laser and Tectron/Catseye collimation toolset, add $200.)
I purchased this scope from the original owner 14 months ago at a sacrifice price - he had never used the scope, and it was still in original boxes. Thus, I can pass this savings on to the next owner, hopefully facilitate a quick sale, and make someone else as happy as I was when I got this scope. This may be the best offer for this model of scope and associated upgrades and accessories that has been seen on Astromart. I pamper my equipment, and this scope looks and behaves as new. This scope is dialed in, aligned, tweaked, and performs extremely well. I am selling because my viewing location has too many tall trees, and because I want to focus on another interest. Otherwise, I would never want to sell this great scope.
Pick up in Marquette, Michigan only, or within 150 miles. No trades, please.
