I have a compact TMB 92MM f/5.5 apochromatic triplet with FPL 53 ED glass. If you are reading this post you probably know this is a sought after scope created by renown optical designer Thomas M. Back. I have used this scope very few times. I bought it for astrophotography and I ended up not pursuing it after I realized what it took Posted Image (other related equipment for sale soon.)

The telescope is in 9+ condition. It only has a smudge on the hood (see pictures) and a little ding on the removable front cap. The optics have never spent a night out or seen a cloth on their surface. I own a lot of photography gear so I know how to handle delicate glass. The optics look just like when I got the telescope. This sale is for the scope and optional TMB rings. The scope comes with the original TMB metal case.

The Feather Touch Focuser is 3" for flkexibility with all kinds of cameras and it supports many viewing angles due to its rotating eyepiece holder. The microfocuser will give you a 10:1 reduction. It is precise and smooth. You can read the full review that was given by Sky and Telescope.

I will consider trades as partial or full payment - looking for a small high quality scope...
