81mm triplet refractor for sale

Journal issue: 2018 October
Pages: 303–303

The Association is most grateful to Stephen Swan for his recent donation of a fine telescope and mount. As we no longer operate an instrument loan system, this telescope is offered for sale to a good home.

It is a William Optics GT-81 triplet apochromatic refractor using FPL-53 glass, 81mm aperture, f/5.9. The two-speed focuser has a digital readout and a thermometer. It comes with a 2-inch Televue star diagonal and a Vixen Great Polaris manual equatorial mount and tripod. Offers in the region of £800 are invited to me at, or by post to the Office. Closing date for offers is Wednesday 2018 October 31.
