Southern Cross 200mm f/4 Deep Sky Telescope and motorised tripod. SORRY, ITS SOLD!
Includes 25mm & 9mm super plossl EPs plus Orion Laser Colimator, 8x50 finder, polar scope, laser pointer bracket on tube. Well-figured Pyrex Primary and Secondary optics and Stable Rack & Pinion focuser have been carefully repositioned to give excellent, deep sky images when well colimated, with only minor periferal coma compared to usual f/4 'scope. (A coma corrector only necessary if wanting total clear field for full aperture pics. AST&T review gave this deep sky 8" scope a good thumbs up and now it's been modified it is even better.
OTA with EP weighs 8kg & tripod mount (incl weights) 20kg.
Have enjoyed several years of easy set up, great deep sky viewing with this scope, from 28X to even 300X one perfect dark site night. I'm only selling now because am building a 22" f/3.6 with Steve Kennedy optics.
