I am posting this ad for a friend who now, for medical reasons, is no longer to use this scope. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity on a truely excellent telescope both OPTICALLY and Mechanically. It is presently residing at my house abut 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia. Arrangements for inspecting the telescope can be made by contacting me directly. I am fully responsible for the content of this ad and for the telescope itself. Now a little about this incredible homemade telescope and award winner:
This 12.5 inch F/7 reflector is a triple award winner at the prestigious Stellafane telescope convention in Springfield Vermont in 2012. It won first prize for optics, and third prizes in both craftsmanship and mechanical design. This is an excellent planetary telescope. It features a superb mirror, cooling fan, an Argo Navis computer system and custom made cases for the mirror and the Argo Navis support arm as well as a 60mm finder, Moonlight focuser and a ladder. Two 12v batteries are included. Everything is in excellent condition. No eyepieces or other accessories are included. I can't say enough about this telescope, It is an outstanding performer, you would surely pay 3x the price if a professional telescope maker constructed. The construction is beautiful. The Argo Navis system once aligned on two stars places every object in the field of view of a low or medium power widefield eyepiece (not included). Fortunate will be the individual who purchase this telescope. The optics are incredible and REFRACTOR like.
Excellent optics make this a high contrast general purpose scope, including planetary!
I have tried to price this scope fairly but I do understand that it a one of a kind scope. Please note that this is a pick up item as shipping would be prohibitive.
Thanks for looking. Bob Midiri Se Pa 19320
