SOLD: Etalon (Pre-Meade) and like new BF5 for $99 Each

Post by Starry Jack » Sat Jan 02, 2021 11:29 pm

I'm parting out my PST Stage 2 Mod.

$99 gets you my Coronado (pre-Meade) Etalon #95471 (and the attractive portion of the original gold tube which I adhered to the Etalon as a nosepiece into a 2" focuser). The Glasspath is already sold. If you'd like the extension tube you are welcome to it (it also has a self-centering 1.25" adapter adhered to it.)

$99 also gets you my like new BF5 (<$300 new) blocking filter.

Can't beat this!!! :)

I hope this is a "steal deal" for someone and blesses them in their projects.

Ouch! I just found these offers so I will contact you in order. So sorry I had not gotten the messages.

BTW, the BF5 is sold and the gold tubes are removed and the self-centering adapter is now repurposed.


Stay tuned,
Jack

Here are the photos of the ETALON after I have removed the gold tubes. The ETALON looks clean but I want to make sure you know you will not win beauty awards with your mod. The ETALON has some teeth marks on the surface but that does not impact performance.

I will ship with both gold tube "extensions" so you have the option of using these as properly spaced adapters. Please note the rubber covering is also absent.

I enjoyed this project but time for a new home. I will ship and absorb paypal for that $99. International shipping may be a bit more.

Thank you,
Starry Jack

Good news for you beauty nerds. I found the tuning ring so the scuff marks on the ETALON are covered. I will ship everything in the initial post except the self centering adapter and the glass path and BF5.
