Bresser Messier 102mm OTA


AR102S f/5.9 refractor.
102mm diameter lens, with a focal length of 600mm. A nice fast refractor that gives great wide field views of the Milky Way as well as bringing in those fainter galaxies, globulars, etc.
I am selling with a Telrad red dot finder. The finder that originally came with the scope was plastic and nasty and one of the worst things I have ever seen on a telescope, it went straight into the bin, it was useless. I can't understand why they would make a fine scope like this and put such a miserable finder on it. I have tried to take an image of the red circles, but it was not easy. Anyway.
It comes with caps, tube rings and dovetail plate. There are some marks on the dovetail and one or two on the tube, as seen in the photos. The glass is perfect. The focuser works nice and smoothly and has a graduated scale.
PLEASE NOTE: Tripod, mount and cat are not for sale, this is for the OTA alone.

@John roche taxi: It all depends what sort of mount you want and what you want it for. There are two types, equatorial and alt-az, the equatorial can be electrically or computer controlled, the alt-az is manual, you move it back and forth by hand. I use an alt-az, it is easier to set up and use, no cables, no aligning, just set the mount on the tripod, attach the telescope and away you go. I have used equatorial mounts in the past, I just prefer the simple option.
Check out or, they have sections on mounts that might be of use to you.
Also check out the telescope sales sites for more information and prices.
Hope this helps.
