The scope is in good shape with a few scratches from normal use. The 80 mm finder's lens is scratched, nothing noticable from the ep. The Torus mirror is just back from a fresh recoat. I noticed a small scratch in the coatings. Jim Mulherin at Torus has offered to replace it with a new mirror. I don't feel it's an issue, but if you do (and you buy it) you can have a brand spanking new mirror.
The views through this are nothing short of stunning. Jupiter and Saturn look like they do on Meade's ETX90 boxes! The Veil nebula is to die for. You can get lost driving around in it.

Over 8K invested, not to mention $600 to get it shipped. Will sell for $5500 with a strong preference in a mid-atlantic buyer. Could not take a pic as it is raining (big surprise). May be able to post a pic tomorrow.
