Coronado CaK 90 for sale Rebuilt with new filters SOLD

Post by piekielrl » Mon Mar 05, 2018 2:16 am

SOLD SOLD SOLD


I have for sale a rebuilt Coronado CaK-90. It originally was Gary Palmer's scope. I had Omega Bob scan the original filters and make new ones that have tighter skirts and better transmission. The main filter is now full=aperture. Also included is a CaH filter. Anyone interested, message me for details.
Thanks, Bob

Make me a reasonable offer. I've been told there were only 6 of these made, and this was the first. Email me direct at piekielrl@netzero.net and I'll send you a detailed description so you will know what you're getting. The last time one of these went for sale was a few years ago on CN. It was being sold (if I remember correctly) by former Coronado employee Brian Stephens, and it was advertised at $7000. I believe our imperious leader here bought it. (I'll take much less for mine!)

Hi Bob,
I don't think this is the first scope as I have used scope number 1 and it is still where I left it. You can tell by looking at the serial number, number 1 is
950001 what does yours say?

This was the "prototype" that was made by Coronado specifically for Gary Palmer to asses and give feedback to the Lunts to determine if a CaK 90 scope would be worth it in production. It doesn't have a serial number, just a blue & white Coronado logo and the CaK emblem. It sounds iike you have the first of the actual production run.
Thanks, Bob
