    Default WO 71ED Doublet, Skywatcher Equinox 80ED or equivalent (ie good focuser, and APO)



    Please, if anyone knows of a friend or has one of the above scopes for sale, I'd love to purchase it from you. I've been in line to buy 3 or 4 of these only for the seller to not 'see' my email and sell it to someone else. I'm following every used classified site I can find. The focuser needs to be able to take the weight of a DSLR.
    Thanks!

    The William Optic site had a demo 20th Anniversary ZS71 the last time I looked. As an owner of a ZS71 I can tell that your search is well worth the effort.
