I have too many telescope now so I'm giving up my early model Coulter CT-100 "travel scope". The CT-100 is an open tube reflector that was introduced by Coulter Optical in 1978. Anyone who has seen a CT-100 up close will marvel at the simplicity of design and the surprisingly good images it produces. I used this telescope as a stand alone relector but I've seen some big Dob users mount one of these as a wide field finder. This scope has more than twice the aperture of a 50mm finder so you can really spot faint objects.

This scope has a 4.25” f/3.5 mirror and a focal length of 377mm. Comes in the original brown leatherette case with three eyepieces (one has a helical focuser) and an erect image prism. Both the secondary and mirror units are in very good condition. The "tube" has a scratch in the outside paint on the mounting bracket (see pic) and both mirrors are dusty (meaning I have never cleaned the optics). The mirror has a focuser and can be collimated.

My price is now $350 and I'll pack and ship FedEx in CONUS. PayPal preferred.
