I bought this Discovery scope about 6 weeks ago but am finding that it's a bit too big for me to wrestle around. It has the upgraded pyrex mirror with high-reflectivity coating, the 2" focuser with 1-1/4" adaptor, Telrad finder, and a beautiful birch base. So it is essentially an $800 Premium except for the lack of the Crayford focuser. I did drill an extra hole in the tube to try out a different finder and I also experimented with taping some weight to the bottom underside of the tube to compensate so there are some marks on the scope tube. Otherwise it's pretty much new. It comes with 10 and 25mm Plossl eyepieces and original documentation. I'll sell the scope for the price of a non-upgraded 8" f7 - $450. I have all the shipping cartons but obviously would prefer a buyer local to southern NH.
