Well, I got the bug and am moving up in aperture. My loss is your gain as this 'scope has absolutely SUPERB optics! Great at virtually everything from deep sky to planetary (my best ever view of Jupiter was with this 'scope). Comes with all the original "stuff" including the Crayford focuser, 7X50 finder, and eyepiece. I'd MUCH prefer not to ship, but do have the original boxes. I am willing to travel anywhere from Columbus, Ohio to Pittsburgh, PA to do a "face to face" with a buyer.
I am in no way desperate to sell this, so don't even bother to contact me with low offers. I am interested in partial or full trades of almost anything of comparable quality/value and would give great consideration to a Pronto or premium eyepieces. My price is $900 plus gas for delivery. If you want me to ship, we'll have to discuss it... I can send a picture, but it looks exactly like the one at the manufacturer's website.
