The telescope did not sell at the Texas Star Party, here in Fort Davis.
I am now willing to ship the telescope to the buyer.
Fortunately, I still have the Tele Vue cartons that I received the telescope in.
This is a collector's item.  This telescope has exquisite optics.
It has been perfectly aligned by Mr. Al Nagler himself, at the Texas Star Party.
 
The lenses were made in Japan, and were too expensive, so production was stopped. 
Only 37 were ever made.
5.5" APO,  f/5, 700 mm f.l.  The low power fov is 4 degrees. 
This scope won the Winter Star Party astrophotogaphy contest, with a picture of Eta Carinae.
A 30x40" laminated copy of this photo can be purchased by buyer of scope.
  See attached picture.
The dew shield is very slightly bent, but it does not effect the performance.
The Gibraltar field mount is included.     
Included is a 5X Powermate, which was designed just for the TV 140. 
Also, included is a Thousand Oaks solar filter and 5 1/2" Losmandy rings.
I am 80 years old, and have health issues.
So, I am passing this splendid telescope on to the next generation, to enjoy as much as I have.
