For Sale: Orion 120mm Achromatic Refractor and SkyView Pro Equatorial Mount (not motorized). Single owner for about 10 years looking to free up space. Excellent for serious beginner or intermediate user. A great step up from a table-top or grab-and-go telescope before taking the plunge into expensive, computerized/motorized equipment. A great way to learn the sky. The telescope is a 120mm, f/8.3 achromatic refractor manufactured for Orion and on Orion’s Skyview Pro equatorial mount (will do tracking via manual slow-motion controls; not motorized). Made some upgrades to both the telescope and tripod, including adding brass focus knobs and counterweights to the telescope to help it achieve more comfortable balance, custom knurled aluminum slow-motion control knobs, and a custom mounting bracket for a Telrad zero-magnification (red bullseye) finder. Condition is good, but used. Any issues are purely cosmetic. Optics are in perfect condition. Includes 1.25″ mirror diagonal, but does not include a finder scope. There are also some accessories available, including an anodized aluminum, dual-speed Crayford focuser (very smooth focus control and easy fine adjustments), and solar filter. Please contact braunth7@gmail.com for additional information or photos. Asking for $425. Inquiries about other accessories also entertained.
