If you don't like this scope, I'll buy it back! They're cheezy scopes but their main optics are sweet!
I replaced the focuser with a JMI NGF DX3 w/3" drawtube. Very smooth and has 3 lock screws for super rigidity.
Scrapped the cheezy finder ( it's base doesn't fit) and installed a nice Meade 8x50 finder (blue) on rear of tube to balance since I had a long imaging train up front. It would be no biggie to move up forward again!
I removed the primary mirror clips and siliconed the mirror to its seats. Much better for imaging.
This baby has a nice wide field and was an excellent imaging scope with my SX HX916. Stars are nice and tight.
Comes with the rings and Losmandy Dup plate on the bottom.
I'm dropping the price by $50 dollars cause I took off the piece of tape that covered the holes for the original finder and paint came off with it.
The tape never bothered me till I tore it off! I'm not in this for beauty awards ;-)
If I wasn't shifting directions, I wouldn't sell this scope!
