Original Genesis refractor, serial number 1918. According to Al Nagler(Yes, he does answer the phone sometimes.), this unit was manufactured in November of 1991. This would have been just before they switched to the "sdf" models. The unit comes with all of the original accessories including the tube holder w/dovetail plate, 2" focuser, 2" Televue diagonal w/1-1/4" adapter, sliding dew shield, screw on dew cap, and hardshell case.
This unit does have some wear; I would classify most as typical for a 10 year old instrument. There are scuffs in the tube paint, but no real sharp scratches. Additionally, there is a small pick, or "dig" in the primary as seen in the photos. It is very small, maybe 1-2mm, within a quater inch of the outer wall, and the tech support personnel at Televue said it would have no appreciable impact on performace, but it is there. There are some scuffs and scratches on the case, as well. The focuser knobs have a little brassing, this can be seen in the photos.
The unit performs very well. The focuser is buttery smooth, maybe a little smoother than on my TMB apo, and stars snap into focus. I have not done a star test; I'm not at that level of knowledge, but I can say that stars appear as little points even at 175x.
