Pristine Ivory tube TV-101. Starbeam finder, clamshell mount, Everbright diagonal, TV hard case, Kendrick 4" solar filter, Orion helical fine focus adapter (effectively makes for two speed focusing and tack sharp images at high power).

Choice of mounting packages.
1) Giro II deluxe single arm mount (can be modified for dual arm)with 11 lb. counterweight, and adapter to mount the TV clamshell to the arm. Stable ash tripod, Bogen padded tripod bag. This package is superior to the Gibralter mount for ease of tracking at highest powers and eliminating "Dobson's hole" that plagues the Gibralter.

2) Orion Skyview Pro EQ mount, with dual axis drives, polar scope, hinged 4" rings, Rigel Quikfinder, and upgraded 12", flexible right ascension and declination cables. This easily polar aligns and tracks extremely accurately.

Probably the nicest accessory for this scope is the TV 5 times Powermate. It corrects out aberrations with standard eyepieces. For example my old Meade research grade 20mm erfle shows some coma at the outer 15% edge of field used by itself. But the Powermate eliminates all coma from this and other eyepieces. The powermate teamed with a nice 10mm plossl gives 270 power with a tack sharp image. Planets are beautiful through this color free scope at that and higher powers.

The first Full price offer gets the 5 times powermate thrown in.

I pay shipping. I'll deliver personally if within a few hundred miles of Pittsburgh, PA.

e-mail me or call my cell at 724-518-0194.
