Excellent optics and OTA, base , etc... all in ex+ condition showing minimal to no use. No chips, scratches, etc... Tripod shows just very slight signs of use.
The scope performs very well with crisp bright images and good collimation. I bought this as an experiment to see if the GOTO would be useful in finding new things to observe for me. While pretty good at finding new objects and great views my poor sky conditions are the limiting factor.
I have 2 Questars now and this certainly holds it's own optically on many brighter objects and cools down much faster than my 7" does.
$650 firm + actual shipping (est $30-40 in CONUS) Scope will come in original packing with tripod in a second package.
