This is a perfect,  hardly used TeleVue SDF Renaissance, brass tube refractor used at most five times. These telescopes have become quite rare due to their quality and brass tubes which equilibrate so much more quickly than others. They  are also BEAUTIFUL!  The objective lens cap has not been removed for over twenty years nor has the star diagonal aperture. It has a 2" star digonal with a reducer for 1 1/4" eye pieces.
I am recently retired and would like a larger diameter SCT and am considering learning astrophotography. The scope comes with an ash wood tripod and ALT mount which are also perfect. Carrying case...of course! A sun filter and JMI NGC mini-max are included. but no eye pieces..
The picture you see has the dew shield extended.

The instrument has basically served as a piece of art work in my library untouched for all these years. 
All original paperwork and receipts are present and the handbook is signed by Al pen!
I would be happy to show this perfect telescope in person to anyone interesed.
Will consider best offer or trade for computerized CAT. 
If you are looking for a light, portable rich view refractor in perfect shape...Nothing better!

This is a beautiful instrument! I
if I cannnot sell it...I'll keep the baby!
