For sale is a beautiful Stellarvue SV102T apochromatic refractor. This scope features an air-spaced 102mm F7 triplet objective that uses an FPL-53 element for excellent correction against false color. The objective was hand-picked, and the test report (included) shows a Strehl ratio of 0.991and a Peak-to-Valley error of 0.126. The scope also features a fully rotating 2.5-inch Feathertouch rack-and-pinion focuser, a pricey upgrade from the standard SV focuser.
I am the original owner, and the scope is seven months old. It has been lightly used in my back yard, and is in excellent condition. There are no marks on the OTA, and the objective is pristine apart from a few specks of dust. The lens has not been touched, and it has never seen dew. The collimation is dead-on, and the views from this scope are superb as you would expect given the test report specs. I would not be selling this scope if I did not just pick up a 105mm CFF refractor.
Included in the sale are the OTA, the C9S case, objective cover, 2/1.25 inch visual back adapter, rings, a Vixen dovetail, and the paperwork. Also included is a plastic cap to cover the open end of the OTA if you want to remove the focuser for travel.
I will sell this package for $1950. I will split CONUSA shipping by FedEx ground and the PayPal fee (3%) with the buyer.
Thanks for looking.
