Up for sale is a 12.5" Parallax Model P1320C f/15 Classical Cassegrain. This exact telescope normally sells from the manufacturer new at $9,800.00 but given the circumstance, it will be parted with for $6,999.00. The original owner of this telescope never opened it. It sat in the original crate that it was packed in from the manufacturer for about a year. The previous owner passed away without ever having it seen first light! Upon opening the crate we discovered that the plastic sheeting that covered the top of the crate was still intact. Our initial inspection of it after fully opening the crate and cover revealed a slightly dusty tube (obviously due to the amount of time it sat still.) After our staff thoroughly cleaned all parts for continuity, it was photographed then put back into its original packaging (i.e., the shipping crate it left the manufactures warehouse in.) It hasn't seen first light yet and is begging for a chance to shine.
