Condition: Extremely rare, part of an estate sale. This is a used TEC 8'' Maksutov in good condition.  It is serial number 0102.  They don't make these any more!  The f/20 focal length means that the secondary obstruction is tiny.  This is the planet-killer you've been waiting for.  

Includes rings with variously spaced screw holes to screw on the mounting plate of your choice - DOES NOT INCLUDE A DOVETAIL PLATE.  It includes what we believe to be a straight-through 8x50 finderscope with a helical focuser.  There are no other accessories.  

No boxes; in-store purchase only.    

Clear aperture 200 mm
Focal length 4000 mm
Focal ratio 20
Tube diameter 10″
Tube length  31″

Testing and Quality Assurance

TEC Telescopes go through rigorous testing to ensure top quality performance. Newtonian Rings are used throughout the glass production process and we then use an interferometer to correct any remaining imperfections. Every telescope is then tested vigorously to reach the most optimum Strehl ratio possible. Rest assured that your telescope has been optimized to be as optically perfect as possible. If the objective does not reach Yuri’s expectations, the telescope will not be shipped. As a strict policy, TEC will not release telescope test reports.
