A really nice, clean, very good condition Pentax J-60 OTA riding on a restored Manon alt-az mount. The OTA comes with a star diagonal, not sure if it is Pentax but it works well. The finder eyepiece is missing it's dust cap but the others are there. The Manon mount is one that I personally restored, all new baked-on wrinkle paint and refinished woodwork. Looks like new. The combination works very well together and is a true one-hand grab-and-go setup even fully assembled. I have placed vinyl caps over the steel pins on the tripod feet so it won't scratch a wood or tile floor. The objective looks perfect, doesn't appear to have ever been out of it's cell (I am not the original owner). Terrific imagery, I looked at Jupiter & Saturn quite a bit with this setup before they sank into the soup. There are some paint nicks on the finder and small ones on the main tube.
No box, what you see is what you get. It's so pretty that I've just left it set-up in the house. Get this now while you can, legendary Pentax optics on a solid, easy-to-use alt-az mount with manual slow motions. I'll also get points with my wife for letting another one go!

UPDATE: I found the Pentax 6mm Ortho & 12.5mm K eyepieces that came with it, and will include them.

Asking $250 $210 and that price includes shipping to the CONUS. PayPal preferred. I'm crazy to lower the price, to ship to the east coast will run $70 or $80 so you're getting the scope & mount itself for a steal. Hurry before I regain my sanity!

Thanks for looking!
