Sold! - Thanks Chris!!!
This telescope has been used a total of 3 times, and is exactly like new in every way! Excellent optical quality (1/7 wavefront) with included test report from ITE, along with all original paperwork. Padded fitted case, 2" 96% diagonal, w/ 1.25" adapter, the "works" except for the 12mm eyepiece. The finder scope shown in my pic below "is" included, while the Intes Package does not include it.
First person to say "yes", and replies with their shipping address gets this shipped "Priority Insured" to their door for $590.00! PayPal is preferred (ok to use your credit card with no upcharge), or a USPS m/o will be fine too.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day! - Chuck
