​Orange tube (manufactured before 1981) C11 on original 6 legs aluminum tripod. Comes with many extras (tool bow, original power inverter, 2" star diagonal and adapter, erecting prism, two 2" Tele vue eyepieces, Tuthill heated dew cap, and mariner's chest with key.)
​Excellent optics tested visually by Alfonso Carbajal when built in late seventies.
​Please note: although the C11 is often regarded as a deep sky telescope, I used this one mainly for planets. Great lunar and planetray pictures taken years ago on celluloid film are a testimony to its optics. (see attached, but it wasn't easy taking a picture of a picture)
​Only reason I am selling is I am now 63, getting a little too old to set up a big instrument.
​Because of the difficulties in packing and shipping, I would prefer pickup.


  • Condition excellent
  • Location San Francisco bay area
