RC Optical Carbon Tube RC12.5

This package includes the tube assembly plus

  • Telescope control centre version 2 (TCC2),
  • RCOS precision instrument rotator (PIR),
  • Ceravolo coma corrector
  • Rugged case for shipping.

Note that this is the carbon tube model, not the truss.

RCOS (Ritchey Chretien Optical Systems) have been out of business for a number of years now but the hardware is very reliable.

In any case there are still repair options available in the US in the extremely unlikely event they are needed.

The price may seem high but this is a professional grade instrument. 
Some images taken with this scope are as follows:
Shapley 1 planetary nebula:
NGC 3293:
The Circinus galaxy:

I'm asking $13,500 plus shipping costs or the nearest reasonable offer.
