|vixen 60mm guidescope refractors with quality bracket and extras|
I have 2 vixen 60mm refractors, one has a FL 700 and the other FL 420. I also have a very solid and well made adjustable guidescope bracket which fits them both. The FL700 refractor was designed for use with this bracket.
I used the configuration shown in the second picture as my guidescope set up with an additional guidescope ring clamped to the tube for extra rigidity. The set up works extremely well. I am only selling because I am now venturing into off axis guiding.
I think that this sale could be a case of pic and mix. Everything in the pictures is up for sale. You can have the whole lot for £150.00... or the bracket and one of the refractors for £100... or anything in between.

The 700mm refractor has a nasty scratches along the tube. The focuser and optics are excellent.
The 420mm refractor has a small dent on the tube and scratches. The focuser is excellent and the optics are good but I have noticed that the small pads which retain the correct spacing between the front lenses has slipped a couple of mm. Whilst this doesn't affect the performance of the lens it is worth pointing out.
The bracket is in excellent condition
I have found this article on cloudy nights about the 700mm refractor, unfortunately they don't go into much depth about the bracket which in my opinion is the best thing! Although they do rate the FL700mm scope and note that it would make a good travel scope b/c it unscrews in the middle.
