Selling my 2001 Intes MN-61 it has a 6 inch mirror, 900MM OTA, f/6. It hasn't been used in nearly a decade and as I have drifted towards DSLR photography and my small 100MM Borg scope. It's time for this scope to find a new home and start seeing light again.
Asking $750 OBO and I will pay to have it packaged correctly. Buyer will pay shipping.
I am the original owner. Scope was bought from Bill Burnett of Internet Telescope Exchange in Darby, Mt. The scope was lab tested by Mike Palermiti. I have a binder with the original sales receipt, owners manual and optical lab test report. The mirror is Pyrex and has the normal dust on it. I have never cleaned the mirror as the dust doesn't affect the viewing and I fear scratches and smudges more than dust. The OTA has very few marks on it. It will come with the original (rubbish but usable) finder scope. Tube ring, Brass Teleview 2" to 1.25" adaptor. I have a Rigel quick finder base on the OTA. But does not come with the actual finder (that sits on my Borg)
With a Teleview Panoptic 19 or 27 the wide field views are wonderful with this Intes.
Here are the optical lab test results:
Intes serial number, 0.29
Wavefront error (PTV), 1/8th wave
Strehl Ratio, 96%
On axis resolution, 0.81 Arc Seconds
1/2 degree off axis resolution, 0.81 Arc Seconds
Image spot size, 8.4 Microns
If you have any questions, Just ask. I'll do my best to answer. The scope is in Walla Walla, Washington, 99362
