This eyepiece is in very good optical condition. However, the person I bought it from about a year ago machined the crome-like coatings off the side of the barrel. I believe he was having trouble with it fitting in his diagnol/focuser. It fits great in my 1 1/4" focuser on my Discovery Dob.
As I mentioned, the eyepiece works fine and does perform equal to the high ratings on excelsis.
