Selling my Skywatcher 180 Maksutov. In great shape though some light dust on the lens which most can be blown off. I am original owner and have original shipping box. Comes with a Celestron dew shield which I modified via extra velcro for a better snug fit. Also comes with original diagonal and a 28mm eyepiece and a 50mm Finder.. The views are great, little better than then Intes M715 Deluxe I owned for 6 years. I could never get a good view of the E & F trapezium stars with the M715 but the Skywatcher would always show the E star and on a dark & steady night the F star will show. Views of Jupiter & Saturn showed about the same detail as the XLT C11 I had last year except the Skywatcher had a slightly sharper image and darker background. High contrast crisp Lunar view using bino-viewers wowed me on steady nights where I could up the magnification. Collimation dead on and In & out star focus reveal identical high contrast rings. Slight image typical image shift but not bad and only when reversing directions but Skywatcher tech told me that's normal. Price 775.00, 2% Paypal plus buyer pays my actual shipping cost CONUS. If you live in Southern California we can arrange to meet at a reasonable travel distance and avoid shipping. For more tech info go to Skywatcher website or Astronomics where I bought it. Also view the photos this model took of Jupiter and other objects on Astrobin.com they are amazing.
