Stellarvue SV102APO F8.7 LOMO ***Sold***
For sale is a rarely seen Stellarvue SV102APO refractor with an F8.7 LOMO doublet objective that uses LZOS OK4 glass as its ED element. This scope is serial number 0019 from circa 2002-2004. The optics on this one are excellent, with perfect collimation and a very nice star test. The focuser is a 2-inch Feathertouch (non-rotating) that is very smooth, solid and free of any play or backlash.
The glass on this scope is clean and clear, and the scope is excellent mechanically in terms of the function of the focuser and dew shield. There are a few minor signs of use on the OTA that have been touched up, so they do not show in the photos. The rings do show some wear marks. The prior owner had the scope cleaned and aligned at Stellarvue earlier this year, so everything is good to go. I picked this scope up recently along with too many other apo refractors, so I need to thin the herd. While this scope is outstanding optically, I find my preference goes toward fast triplets.
Included in the sale are the OTA, rings, screw on objective cover, visual back plug, and aluminum case. The case does show wear on the outside, but the foam inside is in very good shape, and the case does its job well. While the pictured APM 2-inch prism diagonal is not included in the sale price, it can be added by the buyer for an additional $135 (these run $220 new, and this one has been very lightly used).
I will sell this scope for $1095, which includes PayPal fees (preferred) and the first $50 of shipping of your choice. I estimate USPS Priority shipping (2-3 day) at $50-100 (total, of which I cover first $50) depending on zip code. Local pickup is also welcome.
Thanks for looking.
