Meade 6" f/8 refractor OTA with standard 8x50mm finderscope, upgraded 2" aluminum focus knobs, 2" to 1.25" adapter, rings, dovetail mounting plate, and handle for ease of transportation.

This scope's lens and lens cell was damaged in transit by UPS. The previous owner obtained a second hand Meade lens and repaired it with some high strength epoxy. This lens has some very light scratches in the coating (looks like someone did a bad cleaning job on it).

The lens figure is superb though and the previous owner said it compared very well to his Meade 152 ED. Cosmetically in great shape with a few marks on the tube. In my picture, there appears to be 2 or 3 scratches on the focus knobs. Those were smudges that I have since wiped off.

8/20 -- I just looked through this scope after not using it for almost a year. It is slightly out of collimation. It will need some tweaking of the collimation for the best views. I will lower the price accordingly.
