Saxon 705 Refractor OTA

Hi

Up for sale is brand new never used Saxon 705 OTA with tube rings and finder,
I have purchased this scope as a travel scope because it was very light weight about 1Kg only, but soon realised that because of its light weight built it is not suitable to attach my heavy 2kg DSLR to it , so it sat in its box for the last 4 months .

so it is up for sale.
Some basic information about the scope from Saxons website

Optical Design :
Achromatic Refractor
Diameter :
70mm
Focal Length :
500mm
F/ratio :
F/7
Highest Practical Power :
375x
Faintest Steller Magnitude :
11.9
Resoving Power :
1.65
Finderscope :
5x24 Finder
Focuser diameter :
1.25"
Piggyback Bracket :
Yes
Tube Weight :
1.05Kgs
Tube Dimension(dia. x length) :
7cm x 48cm


As I mentioned it the tube with the rings and the finder, no tripod or eyepieces are included

Asking price $135, Prefer pick up from Brisbane, since I don't have a good box for it but if needed i can arrange postage, at buyers expense.

I will post some photos later today

PM if interested
