For Sale
Status: Active  Advert Category: Telescope-Reflector  Advert # 134306
For Sale/Trade 22" Telekit/Argo Navis & Servocat Driven
For Sale is my 22 F5 Telekit, built to the very highest standard and kitted with everything youll ever need. this scope provides amazing views with superb contrast and little coma compared to faster focal ratios.

I cannot begin to describe the time & effort that went in to building this scope to get the final finish which some of you may have witnessed over the years at Kelling Heath at some point. The scope performs amazingly visually and mechanically, everything works every time. I took a lot of time designing and thinking how best to fit the ServoCat while ensuring I didn't end up with wires everywhere which would be unsightly and problematic.

This scope is BIG! at the zenith your feet are the best part of 5ft off the ground, if you have the location and observatory then this could be the only scope youll ever need.

The only reason Im (thinking) of selling the scope is that I just dont get much time these days to get it out, maybe twice a year, Im not looking to give the scope away Id rather keep it and use it when I can albeit very little!

If you Google Mike Cook 22 you will see some pictures of the scope although its since been upgraded with the Argo/ServoCat System.

I think Ive listed everything below but will update if Ive missed something, which I probably have!
