I just received this brand new hard-to-find OTA. It has an excellent star test, is focus-shift free, and has the new mirror-lock. I immediately replaced the heavy, tall and needlessly-complicated Meade mounting-bar system with an excellent and expensive GP-mount compatible Baader black-anodized, low-profile, lightweight, dovetail-rail that allows the tube to be comfortably loaded closer to a GP-type mount with just two 11lb weights or less--the same weight as the tube. With a set of vibration-suppression pads, this works very well indeed visually.

The OTAs come from the factory with no accessories but the mounting rail.

I don't wish to take a big $ hit having driven it off the showroom floor. The Anacortes new price is $1550 and a wait. I am however open to interesting trades : apochromatic, FS-102, Quantum, Questar, recent like-new C11 OTA or other large cat. What have you?
