This is the BIG ONE.Optics are supurb!I have a Tak 5" and there really is not a whole lot of difference between them except in magnification, where the Meade has the edge. The tube itself definitely shows signs of use. Dings, scratches, etc. However, optics are A+. Tube is fair/poor. Includes:
Meade Finder scope and mount
Tailor made all weather cover made specifically for this OTA and my G11 mount (This OTA is really too much for a G11.)This cover alone cost $300.
$2,750 plus shipping.
Prefer pick up in Connecticut, and I reserve the right to give preference to a pick up buyer.
Would also consider trade (for something more suitable for my G11)
