I bought this kit a few months ago only for the eyepieces that were included in the sale. With no intention of keeping the telescope (I'm a refractor kinda guy) I only took one look through it and was unimpressed. I didn't attempt to collimate as I was certain I wouldn't keep it. I know, harsh! Refractor guys are sometimes like that :) I can't vouch for the optics because I don't know. The seller to me, a recent widow, said "her husband had been a professional photographer and he loved this telescope". He certainly took good care of it and added a few nice accessories, like the eyepieces that I'm keeping lol.

The condition is very good. Some dust within. No dents in the tube. Glass looks good to me. The RA hand adjuster is missing something like a knob although it works. In one picture there is a tiny spot on the corrector that is on the inside surface. (just under the O in OPTICS). The drive drives. Comes with a camera attachment thingie, and a "piggyback" camera bracket to attach a camera to the tube for photos not through the telescope. Includes case.

Buyer pays shipping. PayPal preferred.
