Too many projects, I'm leaning toward more wood-working with my lathe.
1. Minty 80mm f/5 gloss black OTA beautiful MgF2 coatings $65 Baytronix.
2. 80mm f/15 Towa objective Japan in push-pull adjustable cell. Coated and with original metal dust cap. This gave sizzling sharp high contrast lunar/planetary views, and will take any 4" Mak to the cleaners. (IMHO) No CA that I could detect, this baby can handle a lot of power. Probably won't last long at $125 SOLD
3. 8" f/5.6 (45"f.l.) mirror, previous owner said it was excellent $120. Coating good, won't need re-coating any time soon.
4. 80mm f/6.6 Japan made objective OTA by Paul Rini. Has hi contrast and sharpness, focuses with simple push/pull arrangement. Quality coated optics from Japan $80, very clean and sharp with about 82 mm clear aperture . Eggshell white exterior, internally flat black. Very light weight, might make a nice guide or large finder. Will include inexpensive diagonal mirror if wanted.
5. Circle "V" coated 5mm Ortho in original bottle with lid, no caps but in MINT condition, .965 Japan. This has better eye-relief than my 6mm Criterion ortho and is razor sharp to the edge, $50. You don't see these too often anymore, Will toss in ..965 - 1 1/4" adapter if wanted. SOLD
All prices include shipping CONUS. Unable to do pics, but will refund if not satisfied, but minus my shipping cost. You will like these items. I will closely re-inspect each before shipping. Might consider swapping on some.
Thx for looking! Will consider reasonable offers.
