Glass is great on mine. It was mint when I picked it up.

My only complaint is the tripod and that I can not fine tune on Azimuth.

Uncle Rod's Used SCT book helped me make my purchase.

Well finally after 5 days of clouds and or rain, a cold front went thru and cleared things up. Tonight was the first light for this fine classic. Even though a cold front went through, the image of Jupiter was spectacular. The collimation seems close to right on, it may need to be tweaked a bit, but I'll wait for a more steady sky to do that. Using my Ultima 12.5mm eyepiece, Jupiter appeared tack sharp, a beautiful crisp image with a well defined edge to the planet. There was a wealth of detail to behold, even using the supplied 7mm ortho, I was amazed that the image did not break down. Im stunned. Bob
