These items are brand new (except for the soft case). I recently purchased them as part of a large package from the original owner, who had not used them at all, and who had cared for them meticulously. The items are dead mint, with no blemishes that I can see. The owner had the dew shield removed and professionally powder-coated black to "improve contrast". It looks great, but if you are a stickler for originality you may not like it. I will email images upon request. I did mount the scope up on a GM-8 to test on Jupiter, and it was perfect. I am selling to finance purchase of a bigger scope.Items are (with current discounted retailer prices):
