|Parallax/Zambuto 14.5" f5 ota. Custom made, hardly used. PRICE REDUCTION|
Made in 2014 for an Italian astronomer
I imported this from Italy a few months ago, but it is, sadly, just too big for my dome. Now is your chance to own a bespoke ota ready for mounting onto a substantial base.
You could mount this as a very fine Dobsonian if alt-az motion is your preference.
Optics by Carl Zambuto 14.5" f5.
Secondary by Ostahowski; 1/30th wave 2.6" for 18% central obstruction
Support cell on 9 points
Rear cooling fan
Fans on the side for push-pull action to remove the boundary layer of air above the primary
Handles on the tube for rotation within the PARALLAX rings, which are felt lined.
Moonlite focuser 2.5" stepper motor control with manual control as well
Tube internally flocked and insulated
Weight is about 80lbs
HARDLY USED BY ME, only to find out that it won't fit in my dome!
Very good condition throughout
Original retail price was $9500
The waiting time for a Zambuto mirror is about 12/16 months.
Mount not included in this sale.
Collect only from FARNHAM, Surrey
