Due to a neck injury, I have decided to sell my baby, she's just to much to handle. I bought it new in the fall or 1997, and it has never left my back yard. Scope and mount are in the same condition as when they were bought. The counter weights need painted, which I will do if you like. I have a peir, a adapter plate, for a solar max 40, and a wood case for the tube. All of this is included. Diagnal, and finder scope are included, but no eyepeice. At Astrofest last year I had a chance to compare my scope to a TMB 7" f9. At 325x on Mars, the TMB didn't have anything on my scope. I'm sure at higher powers you would see a difference. It made me feel good I didn't spend the extra $8000 for the TMB. I have had many unforgetable veiwing session on the planets. M13,M42, OW MY GOD, is all I could say the first time I seen them through this scope. During good seeing, six stars are visible in M42, no addverted vision needed. I will be a Astrofest, in Kankakee, IL September 18th, if you would like to see the scope. I can send pic of the scope and mount. Please, serious inquires only
