This is Orion's SkyView 90mm refractor from their catalog a few years ago. It includes the original 6x30 finder and 1.25" mirror diagonal. The mount is Orion's SkyView Deluxe equatorial mount, which I bought a couple of years after the scope; I wanted to upgrade from the original mount, which was somewhat flimsy. The mount includes a polar alignment scope. This mount is a lot more sturdy than the cheap EQ mounts which come with a lot of low-end telescopes.

The telescope is in pretty good condition. There are some scratches on the tube where it touches the hinges on the mounting rings. The objective lens could probably use a good cleaning. One screw on the housing for the focuser is way too big and doesn't screw in all the way (see photo), but this could be easily fixed with a smaller screw (which I did not have at the time I messed with it). But the focusing mechanism works...there's nothing wrong with it. Also, a few of the plastic lens caps are missing, but those are easily replaced.

I'm not including any eyepieces with this telescope. This is for OTA, finder, diagonal, and mount (with tripod, of course). I think this would be a great scope for a beginner.

I'm asking $200 and I accept payment in cash (if you happen to be around Baton Rouge, LA), money order, or PayPal. Buyer must also pay shipping. I'll ship anywhere in the continental US. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
