As described on the Stellarvue Web site: "Top Rated Refractor Complete System -- Includes everything you need to start observing the night sky. Comes with the M4 German Equatorial Mount, aluminum tripod, red dot finder, 9mm and 25mm plossl eyepieces, 1.25" star diagonal and Chandler's sky atlas." I'm also including Stellarvue's padded refractor case.

Tripod legs have some scratches. The lens cap has always been a bit wonky (the felt lining peeled off a bit), but works. Small tear in case near handle has caused no problem. Everything else to my eyes is as new. The contrast on this scope is spectacular. The moon and planets hang in inky blackness. I've spent hours just on the mountain ranges and shadows of the moon. The Cassini division in Saturn's rings is easy from my city site, as are the cloud belts on Jupiter. My eye easily discerns the red spot, as well, but not everyone can pick it out. Saw a polar cap on Mars this past August. In short, a great scope for its size and price. I'm selling it to get more aperture for deep sky viewing from the desert.

At this writing the cost for these is $733 on the Stellarvue site. Asking $575, plus $40 shipping/insurance.
