Astrotech AT80 achromat telescope. Note that this is not the ED version. This is one of the earliest scopes offered by AT, and likely made around 2005 or 2006. The build quality is excellent, and has the same construction as the later ED versions, with a sliding dew shield, metal objective cap, and a smooth rotating 2 inch two speed crayford focuser. Note that the condition is good, but used. A few minor scratches on the tube, and the paint is a little faded where not covered with the dew shield when retracted. This is visible in the photos. Optics are excellent, with no blemishes or scratches. The case is good on the exterior, but the inside foam is very worn, but usable, as per the photo. The mount and tripod shown in the photo are not included.
The OTA has a mounting foot with two standard 1/4-20 holes for use on a photo tripod mount. The foot can be reversed to change the balance.
For more information on this scope, please see an article in Cloudy Nights "Astrotech AT80. First looks." You can look it up here on Cloudy Nights, or just google Astrotech AT80 and it will bring up the article. This is about the only review I have seen on the scope, and it is from around 2005 when it first came out.
Price for the OTA only is $210.00 shipped and insured, CONUS only. Paypal only at no extra charge. The accessories shown in the photos (except the mount and tripod) can be purchased separately, and will be shipped with the scope at no extra charge to the buyer of the OTA only. If only the OTA sells, the accessories will be listed separately later.

Explore Scientific 2' Dielectric diagonal. Refurbished unit from Scopeheads. Part of serial number deleted after refurb. Unit is in very good condition and serviceable. Additional $40.00 with purchase of the OTA only.

Williams Optics red dot finder. Purchased new in 2020. This unit has a bracket for fitting to either the AT OTA, or Williams Optics. The OTA was not made with a finder dovetail, so this accessory is very useful unless the owner is not planning on using a finder. Extra $35.00 to the buyer of the OTA only, shipped with scope at no extra charge.
