Updated with lower price - this is as low as I go! It's so cheap now that someone local who is willing to pack it should buy it, and resell it to out-of-state buyers for a profit! I have gotten several requests from out-of-state buyers.
The mirror has what I would consider to be a normal amount of dust for a truss scope - since this is local sale only, you can inspect this for yourself. The performance is outstanding - best views of Jupiter and Saturn I have *ever* seen.

$3200 FIRM, pickup only. I am located 10 miles from Los Angeles. This price is a substantial savings from the cost of the components new, and it of course is already built. The scope can likely fit into a wagon, certainly an SUV or van.
