Used Lumicon 80mm "Super Finder" finderscope OTA with 1/4-20 threaded plate on the bottom for tripod head use if desired, 1.25" helical focuser and rear cap only.

As I understand it there were some variations of this finder system that included one that had interchangeable parts such that you could use it straight through or with a diagonal. This one has a single barrel with the rear plate held by setscrews so it is not that variation, appears to be the diagonal version. To use this straight through one would have to add an extension to the focuser which is an inexpensive accessory commonly available.

However note you pretty much have to use the small 90 degree 1.25" Lumicon mirror diagonal to come to focus with this if not to be used straight through, common prism and mirror diagonals like the kind that come with telescope kits that I tried won't work, their optical path is too long. Not to say there aren't other diagonals that might work, I just used this with my Lumicon that did come to focus and tried a few others that didn't.

Excellent used condition but not perfect, a few marks cosmetically and a small ding in the leading edge (see the last photo), glass and coatings fine, no clams, a bit of dust of course.

$75 shipped CONUS, PayPal preferred ("Goods or Services" only) but not required.
