This is the classic "silvertop" Plossl, known for their first rate optical performance. The chrome barrel is stamped w/JAPAN followed very closely by a small encircled v. The top part of this
ocular is one piece, with top part beveled and chamfered above eye
lens. The top part of ep is etched w/a beautiful orange-very precise.
The etching consists of 3 lines. (1st line is: CELESTRON (2nd line is: 22mm Plossl 11/4 (3rd line is:MULTI COATED I have the original Vixen end caps but no box. I would rate this ep as in very good condition,3 small indelible scuffs or scratches and 1 medium scratch on bottom of bevel-also indelible. Scratches are cosmetic only--not
very noticeable but I try to give as accurate a description as possible. Optics are excellent+, great contrast & resolution, no optical abberations.I will sell this 22mm Plossl f/$65 shipped & insured via priority mail in CONUS. Any buyer more distant must pay shipping & insurance. Postal money order or cashiers check preferred.
Will take personal check but won't ship til check clears. Thanks.
