Sadly my skies are both never clear enough and/or steady enough for this scope to get used much. It is in mint condition, and has been upgraded to the new tube with the integrated dew shield and high-gloss finish (and aluminum end ring), but still has the old backplate with the external biscuit fans. It also has the upgrade to the digital servo secondary focuser.
I will include a nice custom ScopeGuard hard case, and the Tak collimating scope and custom adapter.
New this would now run well over $13K and there is a long wait. Have this one right away for $10K. I also have an AO-7 we could toss in the deal if you wanted it, obviously for more. You pay shipping.
This scopes needs a really good home.
