Williams Optics Zenithstar 80 - Black with Gold Trims
For sale, a Zenithstar 80mm (FL 480 f/6) Semi-APO.
A great little grab and go package. Comes with soft carry case. In very good condition with a few marks and a little dust that does not affect performance. Standard mounting foot. 2" single speed focuser with 1 1/4" adaptor.
I was so impressed with this little scope (purchased off IIS a few months ago) I ended up purchasing another actually (also off IIS) which came with WO rings and next model up focuser, saving me having to buy them in for my astrophotography pursuits. I had planned to keep this one as a guidescope, but SWMBO is frowning at my growing collection. I've done almost no visual observing with the scope (mainly due to cloudy weather) but believe there is very little chromatic aberation.
I'm asking $250 including postage anywhere in Australia.
Bo, I believe the later ZS's are using different glass, but are still not true "APO". To be honest I really haven't had the opportunity to put these two head to head visually on a bright object to be able to compare.
