this scope has hardly been used and comes with original box, instructions and all standard items. Everything is in like new condition. This is a late model scope probably the last in line with the plastic fork arms. From what I can ascertain, the plastic lugs that support the Dec motor/gearbox assembly and the wormgear assembly are broken or split as the screws may have been done up too tight. Just lately the OTA stopped moving in Declination and a stripping sound comes from the motor- like gears slipping against each other. I tried to araldyte one lug with some success but found others that need repair. The RA drive is fine. This scope once tracked for over 45 minutes on any object, and has never been worked hard. Looking for a fair price as can be repaired in the right hands...........say $550 + shipping. Paypal ok.
