A great present for the holidays!! This is a 1998 80mm f/11 refractor. Do not confuse this with the current run of more cheaply made scopes.
The optics are in excellent shape and show little color. Included are a 20mm Celestron Plossl(45x magnification), a Meade 2x barlow(22x magnification), and the stock 1 1/4" diagonal. The OTA is well made and has some scuffs where the rings hold the scope. There is also a 6x30 finder and dewshield with cap.
The mount is a CG/4. This is in very good shape and includes one counter weight and tripod tray. The most impressive part is the tightness of the head. There is no slop or backlash - period. Also have the original instruction manual for the scope and mount.
$275 and I will split shipping in CONUS. Paypal preferred - you pay fee if funded from credit card. Money back if you do not find this to be of the quality I described above.
Thanks for looking!!
