Well, they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and we all know what an FSQ in excellent shape looks like ;-) This scope is absolutely superb! It is the ONLY scope that I took to Texas Star Party this year, and this Lagoon shot along with many others taken with this particular instrument can be found on the WKAA (West Kentucky Amateur Astronomers) website. The recent purchase of a chunk of rural property and the hopes of financing a nice dark-sky observatory is the ONLY reason that I am selling this scope. It was recently sent to TNR for professional cleaning and collimation, resulting in a very crisp, clean snap-to-focus. As a matter of fact, every image that I have taken with this scope was hand focused manually! I would be very happy to send pics of the actual scope to anyone seriously interested, but you will not be disappointed. The package includes the OTA as sold new, the extender-Q with all of the necessary adapters for it's usage, the 1.25" compression ring, the universal diagonal adapter plate, and a custom fitted heavy duty scopeguard case. I'll even pay shipping and insurance CONUS.
Thanks for looking,
