This scope is in mint condition, and gives outstanding views. Ed Ting rates this as one of the "choice" scopes manufactured by Meade. Don't confuse this scope with many current reflectors on the market. The tripod and mount are rock solid. No shimmy or shake like the new aluminum mounts. From focusing, to hand use of slo-mo controls, there's no shake here. Just purchased new big scope.
