COMPLETED - ***SOLD***Vixen SD103S OTA Refractor***SOLD***


Recommended Posts

For sale my Vixen SD103S, 795mm focal length F7.7 with a single speed focuser, made in Japan.

This is fitted  with a Primaluce Losmandy bar and Baader Clicklock. Original Vixen dovetail and bought new 16 months ago. OTA only as i sold the viewfinder and flip mirror when financing a couple of eyepieces. The dew strap shown in pictures is not included.

The scope itself is in very good condition with only a couple of marks on the outer lense cell where the dew shield fits, I have tried to show this in the pictures below. This was caused by me rotating the dew shield i think.

Would prefer if this could be collected although i understand this may not be suitable for many here with me being located in Dundee, Scotland. However i can post ( would use DPD for this) as I have the original boxes, this would be at the  buyers own risk.

Looking for £850 payable via Paypal via friends and family or buyer pays fees. If it can be collected  i would include the soft case i keep the scope in - this cannot be posted as it wont fit in the original boxes.

Reason for Sale i recently bought a FC100DZ and the scopes are too close in spec.

Hi omo

If you have any more flexibility on price, then I would be interested in your Vixen scope.

I have a budget of £750 for purchase, plus courier costs, as I live too far away to consider collection.

As I understand the offer I would need to purchase separately a diagonal plus a finder, to bring it back to the original basic spec.?

For your information, DPD will not carry telescopes. Perhaps UPS would be a better alternative carrier.

Please let me know if my budget could meet your expectations.

Welcome to the forum 👍

Thanks for letting me know DPD wont ship them, yes UPS is often who i use.  Do have some interest in this from someone nearby so waiting to see how that works out at he moment.

You would need a diagonal and finder if you don't have these already

Hi omo

Thanks for your reply.

Apologies for my 1st post not being a proper forum introduction, but I had been keeping my eyes open for a Vixen in particular, to update my old Megrez 72, and plunged in before making my intro.

Good luck with your sale, and keep me in mind if you have no joy elsewhere.
