7" Teleport. This is the original prototype. Since then 10 others have been built. Zambuto optics - extremely portable scope. This scope is light (weighs 18 to 20 lbs) and small 9 1/4" X 11" X 21". Setup takes about 5 minutes to extend the secondary with the built in bogen tripod legs. It comes with laser collimator that fits in the scope box, a rigel red dot pointer that also fits in the scope Additionally there is a small drawer for eyepieces or accessories.
When fully extended the eyepiece is about 41" at Zenith. It is 48" with the clever collapsible tri-stand, which is also included. The scope comes with it's own soft padded carry on bag. The optics are Zambuto -- absolutely superb - check out review by Todd Gross, as well as my own which is also posted on his sight.
The mirror has a small piece of debris which was on it when I bought it. Since it has no effect on the optics, I've left it there since I don't like to touch these mirrors unless absolutely necessary.
Operation is very smooth. This is perhaps the finest portable telescope made. Tom has pencilled in a run of 10" and 14.5" scopes for next year. So as far as I know, there are no other 7" runs planned for right now -- although I suspect there will be one in 2003. The only reason I'm selling is because I will soon be taking delivery on the Teleport 10" -- no need to have both.
Scope has fan, secondary heater, and DSC hookups. You'll need your own Sky Commander or other DSC module.
Price is best offer over $2500 plus Buyer pays shipping. But frankly I'd rather someone take personal delivery of this scope in the SF Bay Area.
