|Televue Genesis 100mmF5 Fluoride refractor (not SDF) w. extras|
Hi - I had this listed on my astro garage sale, but thought I'd move it to its own ad so I could post more pictures.
Televue's 100mmF5 Pretzval design features compact dimensions for a 100mm refractor and wide, flat fields of view. Stars are pinpoint and contrast excellent as would be expected from a high end Televue refractor. Colour correction is very good, with only a hint creeping in at higher powers on brighter objects. This refractor excels at wide field, low power viewing, but accepts higher powers easily.
This Genesis was used sparingly by the previous owner I hate that prist
word in describing the optical condition, but the glass and coatings really are in excellent condition. The tube has a few small knicks in it.
This Genesis model has the thread-on dew shield, solid chromed focuser knobs and chrome focus tube. The Televue 2" diagonal has a 2 to 1-1/4" top-hat adapter. Also includes a full aperture Baader solar filter.
The (optional) Televue StarBeam finder is the more recent flip mirror version which allows straight thru or right angle viewing and mounts perfectly on the TV clamshell.
The fitted Televue storage trunk has a short tear in the vinyl cladding on one end but is otherwise sound. The foam is in good shape and allows for the OTA, Starbeam, diagonal, dew shield and 5 eyepieces to be stowed.

Thanks for looking. - Malcolm
