Hi. A while ago I bought some excellent fit and finish (manufactured for western resellers/ rebranders), but unbranded telescopes from asia (an 8" dob, and two 6" GEM Equatorially mounted Newts with tripods). These are manufactured to western standards then sold the world over under different names.

Anyway, I kept the Dob (EXACT SAME as Orion's older XT8, just without the Orion sticker), gave one (black) of the EQ Newts to my father for Christmas (exactly like Orion's, Konus' or SkyWatchers Newts, and have its twin (white) left over which I have no need for.

It is a NEW Short Tube (f5) 6" Newtonian Reflector exactly like the Konus, or SkyWatcher or Orion's (earlier model) GEM Newts, with excellent optics.

Ultra Fine Rack and Pinion Focusser -- VERY SMOOTH and solid

GEM Mount (I believe known as CG3, but I'm not sure).
ALL MOUNTING RINGS are metal etc.

Counter Weight. Also heavy.

Aluminum Tripod.

Tripod spreader / accessory tray

Accessories (good):
25 mm Plossl
6.5 mm Plossl
Moon Filter & Large Moon Map

Accessories (not so good -- I think Orion etc. chuck these out, but here they are anyway)
2x Barlow (treat yourself to a TeleVue instead!)
1.5x Errecting Eyepiece (bird watching?)

Includes good instruction manual (shows how to accurately polar align, collimate, add clock drives, cameras, solar projection etc). All items individually packaged / boxed.

All for $200 OBO (sold at $400+ typically) Heck! Make a mini dob out of the OTA, and mount a 2nd scope to the GEM at that price!

Everything as shown below (white tube). buyer pays shipping or pick up.
