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.

Comes with:

100mmF5 Genesis OTA with thread-on lens cap.
TV clamshell
TV 2” diagonal with 1-1/4” top-hat adapter.
(optional) Televue StarBeam finder with TV box and instructions.
Full aperture solar filter. (Baader solar film)
Fitted Televue storage case.

$1150Cdn without Starbeam
$1350Cdn with Starbeam

Shipping will be approx 50-$75 dollars depending on where you live.

Gibraltar clone mount shown in the pics not for sale.

PayPal preferred.
Thanks for looking. - Malcolm
Price: $1,150
