    Vintage Edmund 4.25" F10 'Deluxe Space Conqueror' reflecting telescope. It is both a collectable and with its long focal ratio, a top notch performer, especially for lunar and planetary viewing. Excellent for a city dweller too with its ease of portability, fast cooldown time and enough resolution to see fine lunar and planetary detail from an apartment balcony. It is mechanically complete, in outstanding overall condition, and has a spherically figured pyrex mirror with aluminized coating in as-new condition. It is equipped with a 1.25" R&P focuser, a 6x Japanese-made finder with smooth helical focus, and functional setting circles. Recommended for adults and responsible younger people; it is not a plastic department store toy. $100. It was originally $94.50 in 1972, so its quite a bargain for such an enduring (and endearing) instrument.

    Last bump for now, then back into storage until spring (and clear skies).

    Early spring bump. I need to make room for some bigger scopes that I have packed away. The skies will be clear soon :) . Not interested in trades right now.
