This is a re-list of this scope...the potential buyers backed out. The scope looks like new; with only a few very minor cosmetic blemishes. The optics are in perfect condition (carefully cleaned once by the first owner). The few blemishes are minor - on the tube (gray-looking scratches) and focuser (silver-looking nicks). I've included photos of the type of blemishes it has (the tube scratches are tough to see, but see the nick above the "l" on the focuser). The Everbright diagonal is not the compression ring type, and has a replacement thumbscrew.
I am the second owner, and the original owner bought the scope just after the NP101 was released. S/N is 1712. It was kept in his observatory, and has been babied by both him and me. The asking price is $1800 plus shipping, in CONUS only. In case you already have a diagonal and 20mm Plossl, I'll reduce the price to $1600 and I'll keep the diagonal and the 20mm Plossl. Thanks for looking (again)! John
