12.5 f5 Obsession telescope with all the top upgrades except servocat.
The f5 12.5" obsession dobsonian telescope is made by the most sought after visual-observing telescope manufacturer on earth. The primary mirror for this telescope is accompanied by its interferometric report which maps the topography of the mirror itself. The primary mirror has a Strehl ratio of an astonishing .996! . This telescope comes with many upgrades including Argo Navis, telrad, feathertouch focusser, ripstop shroud, counterweights and digital encoders. In total this setup is worth close to 9,000$ new. Selling at this super cheap price as my schedule scarcely permits for its use. Search Obsession Teleacopes online to see that this is still a current available design and a crazy good deal.

Telescope alone in US dollars is $3500 plus $400 for shipping crating and brokerage, plus looking at the accessories page, the focusser is $395 Argo Navis $895 shroud and telrad are $200, digital encoders are $440, and counterweights are another $35, and $150 for the Kendrick laser collimator too, and all of this is in American dollars.

So this is around $2300 in accessories and $3495 for the scope plus shipping and brokerage. Just material object value alone, the replacement value of this telescope is $5800 in American dollars. At our current exchange rate that is $7500, not including taxes and shipping and brokerage (these are never in stock or discounted in Canada - you order them direct from Obsession) This telescope and accessory package would cost close to $9000 new. Asking only $3,900. Prefer a local sale photos available, but my smartphone lacks the space for software that would allow for adjusting sizes as required by this website.
Price: $3,900
