I bought this scope for more aperture for both visual and AP. I've only used it about 3 or 4 times before deciding to go back to a really small refractor. The views through it are great and it does a great job with AP, but I just don't have much time for AP and I needed a really small grab'n'go setup (even smaller than this).

I had upgraded it with a new focuser (as seen in some of the pics), but I am selling the focuser separately HERE, so I put the stock focuser back on this OTA. When I added the focuser I had to make an adapter and I reinforced the OTA under the focuser, and around the OTA. Since removing the reinforcement there are some small screw holes in the OTA, but the internal flocking I added blocks those holes and they're just cosmetic and have no effect on seeing nor imaging.

This scope comes as it ships stock, with the OTA, tube rings, a 6X30 straight through finder and holder, and a Celestron 25mm EP.

Upgrades that will also come with this scope are...

Front half of OTA is flocked inside with ScopeStuff flocking.
Secondary is blackened around edge of mirror.
Secondary adjustment screws are replaced with longer screws to adjust by hand without tools.
A hard dew/light shield I made that slips over the front of the OTA, but also slides over the primary end of scope for storage that takes up no space.
A Chesire collimating EP (worth $25).
A long handle on the mounting rings.

First pic shows the stock focuser back on the OTA.
Second and third pics show it without and with the dew/light shield on it (both pics show replacement focuser and my RACI finder on it...not included).
4th pic shows a closer view of the dew/light shield on the end of the OTA.
Last pic shows it mounted on my GEM.

I'll sell this for $175 plus shipping to lower 48 U.S.

If you have any questions at all, I'd be happy to answer them.
