I am looking to get a VMC95L or VMC110L.
I am offering an 80 mm, 480 mm focal length Antares refractor, with 2 inch focuser, scope rings, 2" to 1.25" reducer, and red dot finder (if needed). At f/6, the scope offers a large step up in chromatic aberration from the typical f/5 ST80, and with a 2-inch focuser, you can start right away using your 2-inch eyepieces and wander through the Milky Way! This is the ultimate achromatic grab and go scope, with great reviews and relatively rare to come by. (There have also been some comparisons that the Antares is the same scope as the Stellarvue AT1010 Nighthawk).

I am the second owner of this scope - the first owner had the interior flocked to increase contrast, and added rubber grips to the focuser knobs.

See these threads for reviews on the Antares:



Thanks for your help!
