Delays yesterday, did this this morning.
There is a slight bump in the cover, but nothing on the OTA. No signs of anything at all on the OTA. My guess is the cap was dropped or hit while off the scope. The bump is minor (where there appears to be a chip in the paint), and can be pushed out with your thumb on a flat surface. It is less than it appears in the photo.
I had her keep the hub out which was loose in the box. I also took off the DEC lock handle so the mount sit square in the box. The flashlights velcro in place, small stuff but nice. The tool holder in the mount box looked home added and had come loose, all there, needs reglue.
I checked the tracking over 20 minutes and it moved two 10 minute marks on the RA circles, so pretty close by eye. I also pushed both control buttons on the hand trigger and could hear the motor change speed, but no visual check on that as the change is very very little by design. I did not mount the OTA due to no tripod, but all bolts there.
Has the universal adapter for the T ring.
I'll try to check in for questions. If another KNOWN KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSON here can ship this, then great. Up to the buyer if any one here wins. I can certainly pack it right, it is 1 hour 15 minutes round trip for me to get it.
Good luck folks.
