Ivory tube TV-101 in perfect condition. Originally purchased from Company Seven. The package includes the tube, clamshell, Starbeam finder, 2" Everbright diagonal and TV hardcase.

An excellent buy for less than half the cost of an NP-101 with views that are indistinguishable.

I offer an optional alt-az mounting package.
Deluxe Giro II mount with 11 lb. counterweight.
Specially made adapter plate to attach the clamshell to the Giro II arm (Cost me $79).
Stable, ash tripod.
Bogen, padded tripod bag.
Price for this alt-az mounting package $375.
This is far better than the Gibralter mount which suffers from a 10 degree "Dobson's hole" at the zenith, and manual tracking becomes extremely difficult over 130X. The Giro manually tracks easily at even 300X.

If you want EQ tracking, I offer the Skyview Pro mount with polar scope, RA and Dec drives, 4" hinged rings, and counterweight. This mount makes a stable tracking platform for the TV-101 11 lb. tube. $375.

If you purchase the scope and one of the mounting packages I will throw in a Kendrick 4" solar filter ($69 value)and an Orion helical fine focus adapter that effectively makes for tack sharp two speed focussing ($44.95 value).

I'm raising money for a new 14" scope.
