I am the original owner of this telescope purchased directly for APM in April 2016. curiosity buy as I had been very satisfied with a TEC 200 I had in the past. Perhaps one of two subtle marks on dovetail but otherwise like new with pristine optics.
Features quartz optics. Test report shows a PtV 0.121 RMS0.027
Extras include a JMI event II dual speed focuser and a rare hard to find Intes hard dew shield. Standard accessories include the case, Intes 2" diagonal, focal reducer, finder,piggyback camera bracket, cooling fan and test report. Did not include a eyepiece for the finder so I have included a 25mm kellner. Finder uses 1.25" eyepieces.

The telescope performs admirably. Comparing to my high end 5" and 6" apo I would say planetary performance in-between. All in a lighter compact package. Excellent contrast. Very dark background even with low power views from my light polluted sky.
Price is $2350ppd. $2150 without the JMI focuser. This essentially is a new telescope that would cost close to $5k to purchase now with the extra's and shipping.
Payment via check or MO only.
