Selling my Astro-Tech AT106ED. This is a fantastic scope and very well reviewed. It has an Ohara FPL-53 center element and outstanding color correction. I have used this almost exclusively for photography (a few of my photos are attached... these were with a Nikon D5100 DSLR). Visually this scope is also excellent... I've just had more of an interest in photography to this point.

I purchased this scope as a demo unit from Astronomics several years ago. It does have some condition issues that have not diminished the performance of the scope, at least in any way that I can tell. There are some marks on the lenses. The most obvious are some circular marks near the center. One of the pictures shows them well. That was at a harsh angle for the purposes of showing them as well as I could. The other photos are a little more accurate as to how it looks when you aren't trying to frame those particular imperfections. I have seen no effect from these either visually or with photography.

There are three light 1" rectangular stains on the dew shield and some light scratches on the dew shield collar. There are also some light scratches on the flange of the focuser. The main tube has no issues.

I am including the Astro-Tech tube rings and the original aluminum case. I also have an adapter that connects a Feather Touch 3" focuser to the scope. I have that listed separately, but if the scope sells before the adapter, I'll give you that for free in case you want to put a Feather Touch focuser on it someday (that adapter sells for $222 from PreciseParts fwiw). I do still have the Feather Touch 3035B-A focuser and a 2.25" riser if you're interested in a package deal.
I am offering all of the above (scope, case, tube rings, and likely the focuser adapter) for $775 with the buyer paying shipping and paypal fees if applicable. I can also accept venmo.

This scope isn't perfect but it has served me very well. Please feel free to ask me any questions or for additional pictures if you would like. Thanks!
