I had small items on the outside of the OTA taken off and sent with the Clave eyepiece set. Here is the big picture of what came in the USPS Large Flat Rate Box.
Everything is in good shape. Mechanics on the focuser and finder are excellent. The finder needs a wipe down but has excellent cosmetics. No dings or dents, with nice finish on everything. Minor marks on the finder brackets are about the worst of it. The clamping knob has worn paint. Since the main mount has been identified as non original paint, I'll be rectifying all that which will include the knob.
Older eyepieces often have that dust or dirt infiltration resulting in that speckled view when checked against a blank white wall. Not so here. These Claves are quite nice inside and out, down to the insertion barrels. There are just a few signs of insertion with no set screw dimples. The optics and print are very nice, and general cosmetics very pleasing.
