I bought this last year on sale for $429 when Apogee stopped selling them. Very high quality OTA, lens give great views, just a bit of color at high power. I would keep this scope but for one problem I have with it: you can't use a 2 inch diagonal and expect most eyepieces to reach focus. It really needs a 1.25" diagonal. I liked the scope, so I tried to solve the problem by attaching a lower profile feathertouch focuser, but this caused alignment problems. So here it is, in great shape, with cap, 1.25" erect image diagonal, case, 1.25" adapter.
The feathertouch required me to drill 3 two millimeter holes in the base of the ota. These are not conspicuous.
Also, after reading the Cloudy Nights review, I removed the goofy foam rubber baffles and flocked the tube, including dew shield, with black velvet.
Finally, the telescope has a rotating focuser feature which I never used, but I did tighten it down with the set screw too hard. It still works, but there are a couple of sticky spots in the motion where the set screw hit the soft metal underneath.
$275 shipped in CONUS, checks or money orders only, please.
