I bought my Nexstar 4 about five months ago. It comes with the updated hand control w/the latest software, a Nexstar Red Dot Finder, and an untouched Celestron 25mm SMA 1 1/4" eyepiece in the original box. Also included is the Nexstar Observer List Version 2.0.2c CD for controlling the scope from a computer.
Everything works great and I love the goto, but I am trading up for more aperture...Gee, have we heard that before, but I have used this scope extensively in the past five months. The least expensive I have seen the Nexstar 4 advertised is $593. I will sell mine for $375 plus shipping (guess about $25). The scope does not come with a tripod.
Thanks for looking,
