For trade! Obsession 12.5 fully loaded
Obsession 12.5 f5 with upgraded encoders, feathertouch Focuser, Argo Navis, ripstop shroud, telrad
F5 12.5" obsession dobsonian telescope. The primary mirror for this telescope is accompanied by its quick fringe report. 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 upgraded digital encoders. In total this setup is worth close to 9,000$ new after exchange creating shipping and taxes. Selling at this super cheap price as my schedule scarcely permits for its use.

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 $3500 PLUS around $2300 in accessories 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 $8848 new. Asking only $3,700. Prefer a local sale photos available by searching my ad on astromart - my smartphone lacks the space for software that would allow for adjusting sizes as required by this website.

I far prefer a local sale. I will knock off up to $200 in price in gas (@ 10 cents/km) if you are traveling to purchase it.

TRADE: I am interested in a solar telescope of comparable value. Let me know your proposal.

Clear skies
Price: $3,200
