Found very interestig offer annouced by Vic: "four systems available with the SV110ED, the alt az mount with tripod and slow motion controls (Same as Voyager mount), Vixen style rail and hard case"

http://www.stellarvu...-special-offer/

 

May be sb will be interested.

No affiliation with the stellarvue but I have such a system completed by myself and I am very satisfied. (my Voyager has Benro A-4570T legs for 20-25kg)

I've been thinking about getting one of these scopes. I don't need the alt/az but heck, that is a deal.

Why would you say that?

 

They're just clearing some space for other stuff.

:rotf:

Vic has posted a number of pre-owned SV refractors, including the somewhat rare SV85L (Russian Lomo doublet lens) that Dennis DiCicco used to evaluate TMB eyepieces many years ago. After some time he returned it and they shelved it, mis-placed it and recently found it. It's a great deal for someone wanting a top-notch apo with a bit of history. http://www.stellarvu...ified-preowned/

Some 130's they are finishing up in-house.

I'd prefer to get one for a deal without the alt-az mount, since I already have a couple of better Alt-az mounts. 

 

Maybe they'll offer the $995.00 deal again. 

 

If the optics are as sharp as their ED80, it would be worth a look.  While the Skywatcher ED120 is lighter, has more aperture and the FPL53 element, and the Stellarvue ED110 is heavier, has less aperture, and an FPL51 element, I'm still attracted to the more compact length of the 110ED.

A repeat of the $995 deal on the SV110ED seems unlikely any time soon.  Vic Maris (Stellarvue owner) posted on the SV Yahoo forum that they are clearing out some stock to make way for newly made apos like the SV130 triplet.  

 

Couldn't you take the package deal and sell the bits you don't want?  Or is shipping to Vancouver too expensive to make that work?

I like buying stuff way more than selling stuff!

 

This may be because Canada is a small, spread out market that can make getting a good price and shipping heavy stuff a challenge.

There are a couple of SV110ED in the classified for a great price, 1 of the sellers has posted good things about his in the past.

I love mine, it is a great scope for less than $1,000. Some of the ad's have extras that make it even better.

The SV special is very enticing, but I already have a SV110ED.

FPL-53 triplets are so nice.
