This scope is nearly new; I only used it twice. It is an outstanding Classical Cassegrain that can be used at f/12.4 or f/9.9, with the focal reducer I am including in this sale. Swap the secondary and you have an f/3.9 Newtonian, with no need to recollimate--a very versatile little scope.
I have the Tak tube rings, standard 7x50 finder, and SCT adapter for the back so you can attach an NGF-S or TCF-S for automated focusing with zero image shift during imaging or observing sessions. Also included is a custom case made by ScopeGuard, original manuals and Certificate, etc.
New, this whole package cost $4,860 plus $375 for the custom case (very nice and rugged, and a cool Takahahsi green color). So, total new just a few months ago was $5235. Get a new scope for a significantly reduced price of $4,500, or make an offer I can't resist (I've got my limits, though). I pay standard ground shipping, you pay if you want faster service, so that saves you another $100 or so.
Todd Gross has an excellent review of this scope on his site, and so does cloudynights. Both give it very high marks, and it's a killer planetary scope in Cassegrain mode...I just am selling to make room for a new refractor.
Serious inquiries only, please.
