Excellent + condition.
This is a beautifully made photo-visual instrument. This scope has the integral Petzval lens system that yields super flat fields. As sharp as just about any refractor in the same price. Exposure times EXTREMELY SHORT due to the f 3.3 ratio. Includes custom bottom mounting plate for G-11, Takahashi rings, and top mounting plate for guider or second scope. Also includes original owners’ manual.
New cost is: $2700 plus rings ($150), and custom machined plates.
Your cost: $2500, shipped.
