This is a 'used' scope. This means it has some minor dings & cosmetic flaws, from handling & use. Optically, it's perfect. No damage or flaws to coatings or lens/mirror surfaces.
LOCAL SALE ONLY. meaning, you need to come to me or I need to meet you, within a reasonable distance of my home (25 miles east of Sacramento). I don't want to deal with shipping (sorry). If no local sale materializes, I'll re-list AFTER this post expires, to consider shipment (buyers expense).
