I purchased this TV 85 early 2003, from a well rated AstroMarter. The views have been incredible. It is a wonderful grab and go scope.
I am selling because I have two TV 85's, and have found they are so easy to travel with, I'm selling one to finance other astronomy purchases. I have used this 85 in relatively dew free S. Cal., and have always stored it with a desiccant holder in the diagonal. The Quick Point, Eyepiece, and Focus lever are NOT included. But a brand new clamshell, and unused carry case are.
The picture is the one for sale. The Orion Skyview deluxe is Pending sale, so it is not included.
