Lichtenknecker 90mm f14 zeiss killer achro refractor in Mathias Wirth ota
I have a penchant for extremely rare visual enthusiast scopes. This 90mm/1300mm classic has no frills like a modern scope, this has a non sliding dew shield.

Single speed focuser(one knob has a bit of run out due to being bent with shipped to me from APM in Europe. Set screw 2" visual back with a ton of backfocus (for binoviewing I believe but I never tried it, all i know is I need a 3" tele vue extension to use my regular eyepieces which I will include in the sale.

This scope showed me my best ever view of Saturn and Mars in a 90mm scope. Marcus said it is an extremely fine optic, better than any Zeiss AS series lens. And I've done amazing sketches with this on the sun with a herschel wedge.

I would not think of this as an achro. More like a well figured semi apo. Perfect for lunar, double stars, solar and planetary grab and go. My best view of Saturn with a sub 100mm scope was done with this scope.

Bought it for approx $1300. Can provide receipt and email exchange from Marcus Ludes for serious buyers.

Pics upon request. Can drive to Lloydminster or 150km any other direction from edmonton. It comes with some vixen tube rings and a 7" losmandy plate. Lens is mint, tube is in VG condition. Can ship
Price: $950
