I am thinning out the herd and trying to make room in the garage. I've upgraded to a bigger, collapsible light bucket, so I know this one will not get used anymore, and that'd be a shame.

This is the newer version (brown tube) with updated push-to (40k objects vs the old 14k).

If this scope wasn't a couple of years old I'd rate it "like-new". It is in a very nice condition. I can't find any flaws or anything out of order to list here. Very minor wear blemishes on the base, as expected, but on average and compared to other used scopes I have checked out, this one ranks high.
The views are spectacular. I was able to see dim objects like M81 & M82, the ring nebula, dumbbell galaxy and others, even in our light polluted unfriendly Indiana skies. Great scope for an intermediate or even novice observer. And the expert observers will surely enjoy the easy setup of this light scope.

Everything works as it should. The encoders read well, the scope moves smoothly in both axis. Adjustable clutch for altitude, I have the azimuth tightened a little on the stiffer side to prevent any unwanted movement when changing EPs. Holds collimation very well. I checked it recently with a laser collimator (not included) and it needed just 1/8" adjustment.

I can't imagine shipping it, but I will drive a reasonable distance to meet you.

Included in this package:
- the scope with the base and the electronics (duh!)
- single-speed crayford style focuser (2")
- 2" to 1.25" adapter
- the original Orion 9x50 scopefinder (not pictured, I forgot to put it on for pictures) OR a red-dot finder (your choice)
- eyepiece rack (attached to the base)
- hand controller holder (attached to the base)
- 10mm and 20mm Orion EPs (came standard with this scope when new)
- front cover (fits and holds snug) for the OTA
