This scope has an 80mm F500 objective said to be from the highly regarded University Optics Kit Telescope. I had a UO Kit telescope and this one is just as good. It has a perfect star test presenting identical diffraction rings inside and outside focus with the color fringes you would expect in a fast achromat. I designed this scope to be used when I wanted to quickly change out my Unitron 114 for a faster scope with more aperture for scanning the Milky Way at low power. It has a super robust 2 inch focuser, again identical to the UO Kit telescope. I made the scope with a removable finder so you can offset it when using a tail-heavy 2 inch eyepiece as shown in one of the pictures. Of course it also has a standard 1.25 drawtube. The tube clamp is from a Unitron 75mm and it will work with one of those scopes as well. The objective is nearly perfect with no major flaws, scratches or chips. The paint is pretty good though it has some chips where the metal dust cover slides over the dewshield. The 114 mount, eyepiece and diagonal are not part of this sale. This is a very nice option if you have a Unitron 114 mount. US sale only. Paypal only and I handle the fee. Buyer pays shipping.
