well i've owned this scope for more than 2 months, so it's time to move on.
the scope comes with pretty much all the options one could have--r.f. royce primary (8" f/4.5, guaranteed 0.96 strehl or better), protostar secondary, 8192 step encoders built-in, moonlite cr-2 dual-speed focuser, and dual mounting rail counterweight system. it also comes standard with rigel quickfinder and custom airline portable carrying case.
i paid almost $3800 for it incl. shipping. it could be yours for $3100 o.b.o. shipped. paypal please add 1.5%.
reason for sale? check my trading record and see for how long i usually keep a scope
