I'm asking $900. There really is something special to these OTA's, and they are a delight to own. My previous scope was a 10" LX-200, which I thought had pretty good optics. I set this one side by side, with my wife as the judge, and we both voted for this OTA. The views in the 10" were a little brighter-- and they should be-- but these were sharper, more contrasty, and more aesthetically pleasing (I hope I spelled that word right). This OTA can ride on several mounts-- I've had it on a Celestron CG-5, a Losmandy GM8, and most recently a GP-DX. I have taken this to 500x several times on both Jupiter and Mars, something I could never do with the LX-200 under any conditions (by the way, the view is really awesome). The focuser is very smooth, and almost no mirror shift.
I'll ship in the original Celestron box and foam. I'm selling because I'm going for the big dob (we may all succomb-- pretty soon nobody will want these smaller scopes.....). Buyer would pay actual shipping and insurance.
