This is an original 10" F/16.2 Zeiss doublet with world class optics & mechanics. It's the most beautiful refractor I have ever seen in every regard and the history behind this instrument is an incredible story. It includes a list of amazing accessories which can be provided upon request. The OTA utilizes a 4" Tri-Space color corrector designed and made by Roland Christen of AstroPhysics Inc. It also comes supplied with an equatorial wedge for southern hemisphere observers. This telescope is a masterpiece of engineering that must be seen to be fully appreciated. It includes a free instillation and instructional tutorial for any location. Most observers do not realize how difficult it is to acquire a refractor of 10" aperture to this level of optical and mechanical quality. The star test is literally text book. Saturn looks like a 50 cent piece with hard outlines and the Trapezium in Orion appears as if you were falling through it. Everything is in absolutely mint condition! You may contact me for further details. Serious inquiries only please.
