This is a 1985 Duplex I purchased early in 2018. It has a Zerodur mirror and broad band coatings (SN is 5-DP-Z-8990-BB). I am the second owner. The original owner had it serviced in October, 2017. I purchased it for $3500 with all the standard items you see (telescope, dew shield, dew shield cap, leather carrying case, electrical cord, off-axis solar filter, 16mm and 24mm eyepieces, soft case, 3 legs, manual, and shipping barrel). Items I purchased for the telescope include the yellow Pelican semi-custom case, the full solar filter from Thousand Oaks (never used) and the desiccant (the silver rectangular piece above the eyepieces and full solar filter in one of the photos). All of the items are in pristine condition.

Because of health issues, I've had the telescope out of its case and on a tripod exactly two times. It has been stored in a humidity-controlled environment in a house without smokers or pets.

I'm asking $3600 for all of the items you see. Buyer pays for shipping -- I'm assuming it will require another box for the Pelican case so two boxes in total. If paying by PayPal, please add 3% to the $3600.

Thanks for looking.

P.S. Sorry for the upside down pictures. They were rightside up when I previewed the ad. They must have gotten inverted with the posting process.
