I took possession of a brand new TMB 115 F/7 directly from Tom Back several weeks ago (January 2004.) The optics are fantastic and it is in absolutely like new condition. I was surprised at its light weight and am in the process of moving to a bigger scope.
Asking $3500 which includes rings, 1.25 adapter, lens covers, Baader finder mount (everything that came with the scope) as well as a Kendrick solar filter and a weatherproof Pelican 1650 case with wheels and foam cutout to match the scope size. (Price new is over $4300.)
Let me know if you have a serious interest and I will send pictures.
