The starfinder is aprox:8 months old.excellent condition no scratches or dings kept inside very little use less than a dozen times.I upgraded the supplied finder to an Orion 9x50. I also installed a spring system (like on the orion series) on the Altitude bearings works very well there are no balancing issues very smooth no sticking.The pyrex mirror I got is excellent, according to suiter it looks like to me at least 1/8 wave front error or maybe 1/10 inside and outside focus looks just about the same.The reason I am selling the scope is I'm relocating to Florida from NH. I will not ship this scope just to big and very costly. local pickup only.
