This scope is in perfect optical and functional condition. I bought it to find out about GOTO scopes. I already had a Celestron C8 Deluxe but was having trouble finding some of the fainter objects. I could not believe the accuracy. I used them together and used the Meade as a “Grab and Go”. I liked it’s portability. Well, I next wanted a GOTO 8” and bought a Celestron 8i, thinking I would sell the Deluxe and then have a Grab and Go and a “big” Fixed GOTO scope. The 8i turns out to be pretty light (certainly compared to the Deluxe) and it is now my “portable” (aperture fever, you know). Also, I may still want to try astrophotography some day and figure the Deluxe is the best scope for that of the three (now making excuses to keep the larger aperture).
