Looking for a unique gift for someone special this holiday season (maybe even yourself)?

This scope was assembled with the goal of creating the ultimate night vision system for stargazing.
A 25mm tube provides over 90% more viewing area than an 18mm tube, translating to a wider field of view and a more immersive image.
This is a unique opportunity to own the most compact 25mm Gen 3 scope available!

While the original Star-Tron MK 426 was supplied with a commercial grade Gen 2 tube, this example has been upgraded with a NOS MX-11620 25mm Gen 3 tube. This tube was hand-selected specifically with astronomy in mind, and provides excellent gain and contrast with minimal halo and a few tiny blemishes.

In addition, I have added a superb Pentax SMC 50mm f1.2 lens, which provides an incredibly bright un-distorted view. Among camera enthusiasts, this is known as one of the finest 50mm portrait lenses available! The kit also comes with a Spiratone lens adapter, a Kalinar 135mm lens, and a pistol-grip handle for easy handling.

In addition to its compact size, the scope features a knob for manual gain adjustment. This is particularly important in astronomy, because it allows you to optimize contrast for faint objects. The power switch provides both momentary and continuous "ON" positions.

PayPal, Zelle, wire transfer OK.
CONUS only, please. I'll pick up the shipping costs.
