This is the second in a series of pre-retirement sale items I am offering. (There will be more to come!) I'm moving to a smaller place and am reducing my collection of astro gear.

Up for sale, a pair of Vixen 125mm binoculars. This is the "interchangeable eyepiece" version that lets you vary the power and field of view by using your own 1.25" eyepieces. Note that not all 1.25" eyepieces will come to focus with these - it depends on the optical design. Fantastic wide field views with a pair 16mm Naglers! The binoculars are in good collimation. A Vixen custom-fitted case is included with the binocs.

I am offering optionally, a pair of Vixen 22mm LVW eyepieces with the binocs. I purchased these new and they are in outstanding condition, complete with caps and boxes.

The optional tripod is a "project item." This tripod was designed to work with a 150mm binocular binocular set, but it's too light for a 45-pound OTA. The tripod is certainly heavy enough for these 125mm binocs, but the azimuth shaft and lock assembly needs some machine work - it's a bit wobbly. The Losmandy dovetail bar mounting is a bit difficult to use, so I would recommend reworking that as well. Or, you could come up with your own mounting arrangement.

Preference given to a buyer who wants the whole package. If someone wants just the OTA, I will sell the optional items at the prices listed. Local pickup is encouraged, however, I will ship at the buyer's expense. Additional pics on request. Thanks for looking!

125mm binoculars with case: $2000
22mm Vixen LVW eyepieces $200 each or $350 for the pair
Tripod (Project) $150

Take it all for $2400.
I will only charge the actual cost for shipping, but a rough estimate is $150 for all of it.
Thanks for looking!
