I bought this telescope at a swap meet. It was seldom used by the previous owner, and I have used it only 4 or 5 times. It is in excellent condition. As a newbie I find that I want to start with binoculars, so I am selling it. It is advertised at Scope City for $439.95 + $28.17 shipping. Will sell for $300 or best offer. The buyer pays the shipping, or you can pick it up in Oakland, California.
