Includes all original A-P items: OTA, hood & cap, 1.25" adapter, focus extension tube, case. Purchased new in 1991 through Company Seven, the C7 logo sticker is still affixed to the focuser barrel. After years on the A-P waiting list, we have the newer f8.35 version so this f8.0 scope is available.
While not “show room new,” this scope is in good optical, mechanical and cosmetic condition. The focuser action is smooth. The tube’s white enamel finish has several scuff marks where the lens hood contacts the main tube when the hood is reversed for storage. The worst one is about 2mm x 3mm. There is a hardly noticeable chip at the end/edge of the lens hood measuring about 1.5mm across. Lens cap side surface is very slightly pitted, possibly a latent manufacturing defect. The lens, cleaned once with mild soap and water, is in good condition but has accumulated a few dust specks on the inner surface that do not affect performance. Foam lining inside case is slightly torn at lens hood cutout.
