This scope was assembled by Jamie of Astrosystems so really wasn't purchased as a "kit". Scope is rock solid, and built to last! 16" Pegasus mirror with tiny chip which doesn't degrade images. This telescope is wonderful; 3.1" secondary, center-doted primary great views of planets and deep sky! Comes with moving handles! Will not ship, pick up on Long Island. Primary does not need recoating-still has original coating.
Even more reasonably priced at $3000.
Thanks for looking-a happy and healthy New Year to all!!!
