A friend of mine is giving me a great deal on an AP130 so this scope has to go! The optics are excellent!!! The tube has some paint problems. There is a patch that is about 6" wide and goes about 1/2 way around the tube where the glossy finish has been rubbed off or has ablue haze to it. It really doesn't bother me but I would understand if it bothered some of you. See attached image for a better idea. Has no effect what so ever on performance. Comes with standard accessories (End caps, 1 1/4" compression ring), also included is Tak 2" compression ring adapter and softcase. Asking $3350 (I am knocking off $200 as that is the replacement cost of a brand new tube from Texas Nuatical who has them in stock thus the $3350 price). I can't comment enough on the excellent optics! Attached is an M27 image taken a few nights ago with an ST7E and TV .8 reducer. For an additional $300 I'll include a Scope Guard case in place of the Softcase. The Scope Guard case is in very good condition and $429 new.
