I used this as a guidescope. The glass is perfect but the dew shield cracked and is held together by electrical tape. Looks ok. The tube has some marks from the 3 point rings and use. I put a 1/4-20 tripod mounting block on it as I used it to check out wildlife in the fields once in a while. Has a 1.25" focuser (plastic) with lock. Worked very good as a guidescope. $30 shipped CONUS. Money orders or Paypal (add $1 to help with fees). Thanks!
