This is a great scope (also for imaging!) but I have to sell since I am moving overseas. I would sell the scope, incl. the standard accessories that come with it when you purchase it from a retailer, for $1200 (retail: $1690 + tax). The scope is in mint condition, less than 6 months old.
I have also aquired various accessories that make esp. deepsky observation much more comfortable/reliable. E.g. the formation of dew can spoil a night (after setting up all your gear..) and certain optical filters enhance the possibilities tremendously.
To save yourself a lot of time (and costs), why not get the entire, fully tested, package for only $1990 (retail: $3250)!
I can also supply you with the original Starry Night Pro software as well as Sky Chart (which allows you to find everything on the sky with a mouseclick and move the telescope there automatically) plus give you tips how to set it up to achieve pinpointing accuracy.
Shipping in the US should be less than $60 and you may pay via paypal (credit card).Please contact me also if you are interested in single items.
