For sale is an Orion Atlas EQ-G with an f/4.9 Orion 8" Newtonian reflector and an Orion 80mm guide scope.

Has a few scratches, but is in overall very good condition. The mirror has been moved up about 2" to provide focus for DSLR photography. I used a Nikon D90 and I can include the Nikon adapter if requested. The mirror was moved via longer screws. Screws can be backed off to return mirror to original position.

- Polar scope
- Atlas heavy duty 2" steel tripod and spreader
- Orion Synscan handcontroller
