Thanks, and I'm sure I will. I've wanted a solar scope for a very long time, but could never come up with the $$ at the right time. Finally!!!
Yes, when I called OPT, Mike said that they had it in stock. It's the only place I could find that does.

OPT likes to deliver floor models for a fast sale, and
Lunt doesnt know how to use a vacuum.
<Perhaps a bad experience thats only happened to me, but it did happen >

How long ago did that happen to you? Maybe Lunt has figured out how to deliver a clean telescope.

I purchased the same model from OPT recently. It arrived in perfect condition. No fingerprints, no dust, no tube shrapnel... pristine.
The only issue I had was this horrible grinding noise from the focuser, when I turned the focusing knob. Which turned out to be the fine-focus knob grinding against the coarse-focus knob, and easily fixed by moving the fine-focus knob out a teensy bit(thanks Rikki).
Hopefully, you'll get a pristine model as well.
