I'm looking for a local buyer only for this item, because I don't know where the original packaging is. It's been a year since I used this scope and I'm moving into college in the city, so I won't need it anymore

I can't fit the entire description of my upgrades here, so if you want to read what I've done, I have a review on cloudynights. There are no URLs allowed in ads, so you can either look around for mine or you can just ask me and I'll send you the link via email.

That review is a bit inconsistent with what it's like now. Here's what you get:
8" f/6 Orion dob
Rigel Quickfinder
Eyepiece rack
Dust cap

Here's what you don't get:
Finder scope
Finder bracket
Keychain rings on CorrecTension springs (I removed those since the review)
Ankle weight counterbalance (thought it's not difficult to add one)

The scope looks a bit worn and used, and it's been stored under a bedsheet in the garage for a while. There isn't anything broken with it. I live in Stillwater, MN, near St. Paul, and I'm looking for someone from around here to buy it. I don't want to drive too far but I don't have any rigid limit of how far I'll drive. If you're interested, just email me and I'll get back to you. I'm loosely asking $400 for it; make an offer.
