Please see Auction #6778 ($1.00 was the starting bid)
This is a beautiful and rare Astro-Physics 180EDF F7. See the specifications on the image of the original AP data sheet. I am the original owner, having received the scope during the very last part of the run in 1997. (Serial number available to serious bidders) The objective has been back to AP twice. I hand carried it there both times. In 2003 it was cleaned and re-oiled with the latest oil. In 2011 it was cleaned again and has not been outside since. This scope has taken some amazing Astro images that can be found on my web site. If you Google Jim Janusz the link should be the first entry. Included with the scope are the original travel case and four inch field flattener, AP rings and Losmandy dovetail plates, a custom off axis guider built on an AP 4 inch extension tube and if requested a custom 4x5 film camera. Yeah, I know, film, I was a big Technical Pan shooter and it came in 4x5. Those who know me know how hard it is for me to part with this scope. But, its time for more aperture and focal length so this wonderful scope will have to go to a new home. I welcome inquires for additional information. This is a 14 year old scope so there are a couple of small nicks on the tube from inserting it in the rings. Other than that, the tube is original and beautiful.
