As new in the original box with an Autostar controller. It worked great when I got it about 1 year ago and was spot on with all go-tos and tracking. The plastic lugs that are moulded to the inside face of the RH fork arm secure the screws that attach the Dec worm-drive and electric motor in place. These moulded plastic lugs are split and cannot be screwed into securely without further splitting of the lugs . This also happened to someone else who fixed it himself by drilling right throught the fork arm and attaching the bits with small nuts and bolts. I am financing a new scope so this one has to go!
As I am in Australia, it may better suit someone here to save on the shipping costs. The scope is not very old and I bought it secondhand, so maybe someone did a quick fix to sell it to me. I would like to recoup some of my costs so I am asking $1400 AUD for it which works out as a cheap alternative to a new one. These cost around $2300 AUD new without the Autostar and it should not cost a lot to fix it. Email me with any questions.
thanks Nick B
