Altair Wave Series 102mm f7 Super ED Triplet APO (102/715) & Altair PlanoStar 3" 0.79x Reducer - SOLD
I am offering my Altair Astro Wave Series 102 EDT APO up for sale. This is somewhat reluctant as it is a fine scope, but it just isn't getting the use that it should do from me and passing it on to a more loving owner will free up some funds for other astro related purchases that I have on my wish list! I bought the scope last year and it is in perfect condition. It comes with the dedicated Altair PlanoStar 3" 0.79x 3-element reducer.

The telescope has an aperture of 102mm and focal length of 715mm at f7. The 0.79x reducer brings this down to 565mm at f5.5. The glass is extremely good, especially for the price, and features an Ohara FPL-53 element. It performs far above its category.

Here are links to the two products on the Altair website:

https://www.altairastro.com/altair-planostar-3-0.79x-3-element-reducer-for-102-115-130mm-altair-triplet-refractor.html

The list price for the scope and reducer is 1595, but I am offering it for sale at 1400. The scope has a good solid case, but I would perfer not to have to courier it. I live in Wiltshire and would be happy to meet up nearby for delivery. We can discuss shipping costs, if necessary.

The telescope currently has a Lakeside stepper motor attached to the focuser, which will be removed unless the buyer wishes to purchase that too. If so, its list price of 115 will apply.

Any questions, please contact me.

Thank you,

Gav.
Price: 1,400
