Boren Simon 8" f2.8 CF Astrograph Telescope with Moonlite HighRes Stepper motor Focuser with V2 mini Controller **REDUCED**
I have a Boren Simon 8" f2.8 Carbon Fibre Astrograph Telescope with a Moonlite Highres stepper motors and V2 mini controller.
I will also include a Cats Eye Collimator, a Laser Collimator and an additional ADM Vixen Dovetail on top . The optics are excellent, there are some scratches on tube but is still in very good condition. The Moonlite focuser works flawlessly. I am only selling this telescope as its too much for my mount as fully loaded I am using 33lbs of counter weights my mount limit is 27lbs. I like my small grab and go mount so I'm not going to upgrade mount.

Some More Information of telescope

Short exposure times at f/2.8 - perfect for DSLR cameras without cooling

Moderate exposure times when using narrowband filters

Very good field correction thanks to the ASA corrector/reducer

High mechanical stability due to the carbon tube

Total length of only 790 mm, weight of 7.6 kg (heavier with the addition of the Moonlite Focuer)

Back Focus 65 mm starting from the T2-thread - also suitable for OAG

Fully illuminated and corrected field for APS-C format sensors

Illumination and correction of the 8" f/2.8 Astrograph:
The backfocus of the 8" f/2.8 PowerNewtonian is 65 mm. The popular Kodak KAF8300 sensor is being fully illuminated and corrected. even DSLR cameras with the APS-C sensors can be used with the instrument and by using a flatfield correction you get rid of any vignetting.

Change the Boren-Simon F2.8 super fast Newtonian astrograph into a high resolution F4 astrograph with a very good illumination and 800 mm focal length.
With an optional Coma Corrector.
