I just bought this scope from James Edwards. It is a nice scope, but it is too long to fit on my other scope and clear the dome! The backfocus required puts me imaging at about 40". Should have measured closer first. See ad 273047 for specifics. I bought the finder as well so my cost was 5,300.00 which is a good deal. I will sell for same as I paid. Will take FSQ-106 or Televue NP-101 or TMB as trade. Would prefer a complete setup with Alt-az mount. Other good scopes considered. Will also consider a high end solar H-Alpha setup. I will not take a beating on this. I will however be reasonable. If I can't find a reasonable trade I will be forced to buy an alt-az mount and make it a portable scope. I would rather see someone get a bit more use from this great scope. Does anyone want to trade up?
