My first attempt got several answers, but no final conclusion so i'm reposting it at REDUCED price!
My Epsilon 210 is just arrived, and i must depart from my trusty Epsilon 160 (530mm f/3.3). The instrument is optically perfect. Collimation was recently checked with a Takahashi Collimating scope (not for sale) with optical bench accuracy; the mirrors are perfect with no scratches or blemishes (always stored, i clean the optics only with canned air once a year, and sometimes i tend to skip one).
It includes the original rings, a custom made and very solid losmandy-compatible dovetail plate, the original 7x50 finder, and eyepiece adapter.

I can send a set of photos on request, depicting the details and some minor cosmetical marks, not affecting at all the performance. Sample photo taken with it are also available.
I'm asking now US$ 2400 or EUR 2100, fully insured UPS shipping included anywhere in Europe or (with very little supplement) anywhere in the world.
The requested price is about 50% LESS than European published list price (plus VAT and shipping), but i need the money fast! I accept Money Orders or Cashier Checks, and i'll ship immediately on receiving them. You will not be disappointed; the photo you will take will be razor sharp, up to the very edge of field! Takahashi Astrographers are built as strong as naval artillery!
The attached photo shows my portable setup. Camera and upper dovetail plate are not included. The GM8 mount and the Astrometric Skywalker are offered in a separate ad.
