EOI: Vixen NA140SSF OTA - 5.5" Petzval Refractor

G'day All

EOI to see if anyone is interested in a Vixen NA140SSF OTA in box.

Images to follow probably on the weekend. Have original box!

My price: $1100 + Postage & Insurance (Pick-up Preferred - Item in the ACT)

Description as follows (taken from internet):

VIXEN NA140SSF NEOACHRO REFRACTOR & TUBE RINGS

Are you ready for an intermediate to experienced level refractor telescope that's a cut above the rest? Then take a closer look at the Vixen NA140SSF Neo-Achromatic Refractor Telescope ...

Weighing in at 14.3 lbs this 5.5 inch Vixen telescope is an incredible performer. Deep Sky objects are easily visible and Astro-Imagers looking for a fast instrument with clear aperture will be impressed with the NA140's performance. The advanced 4-element objective lens, set in two groups, minimizes residual chromatic aberrations. With its unique Petzval like correcting lens at the rear, this Neo-Achromatic telescope is specifically designed to provide improved color and a flat field, ideal for astrophotography. Manufactured in Japan, the Vixen NA140SSF comes complete with Vixen's new Dual Speed Focuser.

The Vixen 140mm NeoAchro, or NA, refractor weighs in at a mere 14.3 pounds...the perfect travel telescope that can pull in deep-sky objects with its generous 5.5" optics and perform beautifully when doing astrophotography or imaging, whether you attach a digital SLR, webcam, planetary imager, or CCD camera. The Vixen 140NA is quality manufactured with it's unique correcting lens at the rear. Once again, this Neo-Achromatic telescope is specifically designed to provide improved color and a flat field...and that's a good thing whether you are gazing upon galaxies and nebulae or photographing them!


"Correction is so good, however, that I have also used the telescope for stellar and lunar photography - a use for which I had not originally purchased this telescope. The NA140 has excellent imagery across the field of the Canon 20D but seems to have little or no apparent lateral color error. Its low weight for its aperture, easy portability and excellent medium focal length and fast f-ratio make it the perfect 'one telescope does it all product." -- Vixen NA140SSF User

Features:
  • Superb optical quality Vixen NA140SSF 140mm f/5.7 Neo-Achromatic Refractor Telescope.
  • Advanced 4-element objective lens, set in two groups, minimizes residual chromatic aberrations.
