PST Solar Scope

I have 5 solar scopes and don't need this one.
It is a modified PST with a 12v Motorised Moonlite focuser and a Coronado BF10 blocking filter mounted on a long dovetail with alloy clamps.
A Televue Sun finder.
Also a 1.5mm tele extender which enhances the image, Ken 'Merlin66' can attest to this.
A 20mm eyepiece is included although i find a 8-24mm zoom the best.
With this setup it is easy to mount a camera for imaging unlike the standard PST.
$1400 posted.

Alan,
I hope someone appreciates all the benefits of the Moonlite focuser and larger BF....
The use and benefits of the front mounted "tele-extender" (increases focal length to 600mm) was first shown by Sylvain Weiller late last year...

Good luck with the sale!
