For sale is a great lens for astrophotography Canon 300mm f/2.8 L. This lens features 125mm aperture L-type fluorite front element and has one of the largest openings at f/2.8 ideal for deep sky imaging. So basically this is a 125mm highest quality Japan made fluorite glass with 300mm focal length designed to cover large imaging sensor 35mm in diagonal . Comparable Takahashi setup would easily set you back $5K-$6K, this is much lighter portable setup and at the fraction of the cost.
Originally this was made for Canon FD mount, but then it was modified by a professional photographer into conventional EOS EF mount (using Ed Mika adapter) and accepts all current Canon DSLRs. Importantly the professional modification of the mounting adapter ensured that all DSLRs properly focus at the infinity star test, so everything works. The lens design also feature removable 2" round filter, which gives the user an opportunity to use Narrow band or light pollution filters.

The glass is in pristine condition, there are few minor paint loss spots on the body (most prominent at the bottom of the attachment shoe and near the filter holder) and the hood, which obviously have no effect on the performance of the lens.
