This scope is nearly new; I only used it twice (and found I just prefer refractors!). It is an outstanding Classical Cassegrain AND Newtonian that can be used at f/12.4 or f/9.9, with the focal reducer I am including in this sale. Swap the secondary and you have an f/3.9 Newtonian, with no need to recollimate--a very versatile little scope.

I have the Tak tube rings, standard 7x50 finder, and SCT adapter for the back so you can attach an NGF-S or TCF-S for automated focusing with zero image shift during imaging or observing sessions. Also included is a custom case made by ScopeGuard, original manuals and Certificate, etc.

New, this whole package cost $5,235. Get a new scope for a significantly reduced price of $3,900, or make an offer I can't resist (I've got my limits, though).

Included in package:

CN-212 OTA with both Cassegrain and Newtonian mode accessories
Tak tube ring
Tak f/9.9 Focal Reducer/Flattener for Cassegrain mode
SCT-thread adapter for use in Cassegrain mode
ScopeGuard Custom hard case with casters
Standard 7x50 finder (of course)

Todd Gross has an excellent review of this scope on his site, and so does cloudynights. Both give it very high marks, and it's a killer planetary scope in Cassegrain mode...I just am selling to make room for some new toys.

Serious inquiries only, please.
