I am looking for a 4"ish apo. I ordered an Explore Scientific 102mm carbon fiber triplet on sale from a distributor for just under $1000. They sent me an 80mm by mistake though. I am sending the scope back but now I'm not sure if the Explore Scientific is the way I want to go. I want to see what else might be out there for a comparable price on the used market. I found several apos I was really interested in on the other classified site but no one is responding to my messages. I have considered Williams Optics triplets, Stellarvue, Skywatchers, etc. I am interested in a doublet with fpl53 or a triplet with fpl51or anything Televue. I am strictly into visual observing and have no desire to get into astrophotography. I could be flexible on my budget for the right scope. I am a serious buyer ready to pull the trigger on the right deal so let me know if you have a scope you may be willing to part with. I am a highly rated longtime seller on eBay if you need me to prove my credentials. I am short on time to decide if I want to get the Explore Scientific 102mm Carbon Fiber triplet or not.
I am new to astronomy so I don't want to deal with a lemon or someone else's problem. I have a nice red dot and a 2" diagonal so accessories are not required but if it's part of the deal that's great too. So come on CNers help me out and let me know what you might have. Thank you all for your time and consideration. - Eric
