For sale: Coronado CaK 70 rebuilt

Post by piekielrl » Sun Sep 10, 2017 9:49 pm

Some of you have probably seen my ad on Astromart, but in case you didn't, here it is again:

Here is a Coronado CaK 70. I've had it for many years. I have heard that only about 12 of these were made, but I can't confirm that. When I got it, the filters in the diagonal were bad, so I had a new, tighter filter made by Omega. The original 70mm filter up at the front of the scope had a few tiny pinholes where light was shining through, so I covered them with back paint (see photo). No new pinholes have formed since that time, and the filter appears good. I put all the parts back into a tube that also could house the new Coronado rich-view internal Ha etalon, if you have one to use (You'd also need a Ha blocking filter)
Comes with original case and a 25mm CEMAX eyepiece, plus the clamshell.
Price $1500 for the Cak 70 scope
Any questions, please ask. First taker with a payment gets it. Paypal only, please.
NOT: THE H-A etalon seen in one of the pics is NOT included with this scope
