Bought new by me two years ago. If I were only to have one telescope, this would be it - but I now have 3. Between the big dob and the little refractor, this hasn't seen much use lately, so here it is, in great shape, for $800 plus actual cost of shipping (UPS, FedEx, USPS, your choice). Please don't make me lowball offers, I think this is a great deal on a great telescope.
M603, metal caps for front and rear
Tele Vue SCT to 2" adapter with brass compression ring
optional ($100) metal baffled metal dew shield
Kendrick dew shield (for travel use, metal one does not fit in case)
Losmandy finder rings, Orion 9x50 finder
lots of instructions, reviews, collimation tips I found on the web
Please note that there is no diagonal or eyepiece. There is some wear on the mount rail, otherwise the ota is in great shape. This is the best paint job you are likely to find on an M603. It is a nice ivory color - not the grey or cafeteria white that these usually have. There is also no big blue Alter 603 sticker on the side. Optics perfect. The metal dew shield had a horrible paint job - uneven, pebbly, lots of scuffs. I stripped it and repainted it satin black. You'll have to trust me that it is much nicer now, although there are a few scuffs made by the metal lid, which fits over the telescope and the dew shield. I also flocked the spaces between the baffles with black velvet.
