For Sale
Status: Active  Advert Category: Telescope-Reflector  Advert # 126246
Parallax/Zambuto 14.5" f5 ota. Custom made, hardly used. PRICE REDUCTION
Made in 2014 for an Italian astronomer
I imported this from Italy a few months ago, but it is, sadly, just too big for my dome. Now is your chance to own a bespoke ota ready for mounting onto a substantial base.

You could mount this as a very fine Dobsonian if alt-az motion is your preference.

DETAILS;
Optics by Carl Zambuto 14.5" f5.
Secondary by Ostahowski; 1/30th wave 2.6" for 18% central obstruction
Support cell on 9 points
Rear cooling fan
Fans on the side for push-pull action to remove the boundary layer of air above the primary
Handles on the tube for rotation within the PARALLAX rings, which are felt lined.
Moonlite focuser 2.5" stepper motor control with manual control as well
Tube internally flocked and insulated
Weight is about 80lbs

HARDLY USED BY ME, only to find out that it won't fit in my dome!
Very good condition throughout

Original retail price was $9500

The waiting time for a Zambuto mirror is about 12/16 months.

Asking 3150.
Mount not included in this sale.

Collect only from FARNHAM, Surrey

DETAILED PHOTOS on request if interested. Too large a file size to upload on this site.




Price: 3,150
