A great richfield instrument.
Heres what you get: An older (probably mid-80's) Meade 8800 8" Newtonian, complete with adequate but not fancy CG5 clone, rings, caps and tripod. Scope has one chip broken off from rear mirror ring externally, back by the collimation screws...cosmetic problem only,no effect on performance. It is fully restored and ready to go.
As to performance, when properly collimated this scope ROCKS! Its a very fast scope and will render gorgeous deepsky views. I am including an EZ laser collimator as well. This is a great intermediate level scope at a good price. Asking $400 plus shipping, will entertain reasonable offers. Clear skies to all!
