Hino Mizar P-100

Up for sale is a rare 1960s Mizar Japan-made 100mm F10 Newtonian on an equatorial mount with pedestal. All original, and includes the box &
instruction manual. It competed against the venerable Royal Astro Optical LN4-E, and its views are very similar to a 3" APO. In addition to the
3 original eyepieces, I'm including an older set of 3 with their packaging.

This is another Classic that's ready to use when you unpack it. I'm selling it now before I go too far with its restore. If the buyer would like the main
tube powder-coated, I can have JD do that for an extra $50 -- check my Dakin 4, Edmund 4, & Mogey 3 to see the quality of his work. If I'd kept it, I
planned to put a light coat of satin black on the mount & pedestal to make it pretty on display. Lots of neat features, like the 35mm SLR camera bracket on
the counterweight shaft, and the multiple small weights for quick & easy balancing.

Functionally, everything works. Collimation is easy, and holds for many sessions. The helical focuser is smooth & accurate - I prefer it to the rack
& pinion units of 50 years ago. And a surprisingly good finder, too. Slow-motion controls are smooth, and conveniently located. Take a look at the pix,
and PM me with any questions.
