This is a complete imaging setup. This used to be a Megrez II that was upgraded to an Apo. Williams Optics call it a Fluorite Doublet, but it's really FPL-53. It has a 555mm focal length, F6.9. The optics are outstanding. Even on the moon it's difficult to believe that this is a doublet. I'm also including an astro tech field flattener (AO-AT2FF) that makes this an excellent photography platform, and it has a dual speed focuser as well. I've even had someone make a custom bracket that will allow you to use the Orion mini guide scope on it. (the guide scope itself is not included). Finally there's a 2" extension (required for visual) and a case.

Condition: The optics are excellent. The tube itself has a lot of small scuffs from being held inside mounting rings. The dew shield has a couple as well but nothing major.

The photo of M35 was taken with this exact setup.

Paypal is preferred. I'll split the fee with you, so add 1.5%.
