Vixen (Japan) NA140SSf 140mm f/5.7 Neo-Achro

The Vixen NA140SSf is a 4-element Petzval design with an f/5.7 focal ratio (f=800mm).

This optical design gives a wide, flat field that makes it an excellent wide field scope, with pin-point stars across the entire field. It would also make a good narrow-band imaging scope.

Here is some more information on the scope:

....and in true "Andrews Communications" style, "why pay AU$2,695 elsewhere when you have it for only:"

$1300 for the OTA, rings and William Optics Vixen dovetail

If necessary, I can supply the pictured GSO 2" diagonal for $80. The finder is not included.
