Borg 125 ED APO Refractor
These are rare and do not come up for sale very often. Made in Japan

Optics are in very good condition, clean, no dust. Collimation is spot on. Can be collimated if needed. Visual images are very very nice.
Tube is also in very good condition except for two marks on the dew shield. One of the pics shows these.
- Diameter : 125mm
- Focal Length : 800mm
- f : 6.4
- Doublet ED Apo
- Light weight : under 10lbs with rings
- Can be mounted on an Losmandy G8, Takahashi EM-10 or EM -11, etc. similar size mount.

Sold with :
- Vixen dovetail
- Vixen tube rings with Vixen carry handle. The rings are on stuck on the 115mm tube.
- Borg Dew shield and Borg cap
- Cheap Dual Speed Focuser with Borg draw tube - The dual speed portion is not working, probably just needs to be adjusted. The single speed is fine. It has a custom adapter that screws on to the outside of the draw tube. The inside of the draw tube is M57 internal threads for the Borg 7835 Helical Focuser. I did not use this scope with this cheap dual speed focuser. I used a Moonlite focuser with a proper adapter, much than the Borg draw tube design. I would suggest the new owner to upgrade the focuser also. Consider the dual speed focuser a freebie.

Only the telescope is for sale, the mount is not included.

$1,675.00 plus shipping and PayPal fees.
