I have handed over to Harout at the Vancouver Telescope Centre my prized TeleVue NP-127 apo-refractor, for consignment sale. This is the Rolls-Royce of 5-inch refractors and is priced for quick sale. It comes with a Gibraltar G-5 mount and tripod, Feather-touch focuser and TeleVue's great SkyTour GoTo system.
Of course I had mixed feelings about doing this. When I purchased it it was with the intent of taking it to myriad dark sky sites. Sadly that didn't happen, aside from two trips to McDonald Park, and so it sat in pristine condition, but neglected, in my living room.
I sincerely hope this telescope will be acquired by someone who appreciates the tack-sharp star-images and wide field views this wonderful instrument offers.
Call Harout right away if you're interested, because I expect this to move quickly.
