REDUCED! For anybody who is familiar with the Borg system, this is a high quality scope with top-notch optics. It is extremely light weight (about 4 lbs) and it packs down into a highly portable Borg carrying case. The helical focuser works great even with very heavy loads, it also has a 3" draw tube, so plenty of range. Borg is famous for its modular system that allows exchanging tubes, focusers and objectives. The 76ED is part of the series 80 and would allow upgrading to a 101ED or using a smaller 50ED (also an excellent widefield apo) for a shorter focal length.

The system is set up for visual observation as well as astrophotography. I can add the 7108 Borg 1.08x Field Flattener (sells new by Hutech for $365) for $200. It is in excellent (almost like new) condition. The scope itself has a few tiny nicks in the paint job (see pics) and the main tube has lost some of its shine. Overall, the scope looks nice and the views are absolutely great. It comes with the Borg rings and a solid ADM Vixen style dovetail. The dovetail has the usual set screw marks. My only reason to sell is that I just purchased a 90mm triplet and I need to thin the herd. I am also selling an Orion 80ED (reduced as well), see my other ads. Mount and camera are not included.
