This is essentially a brand new telescope that I ordered over two years ago. If you are interested in an outstanding telescope (the replacement cost of the Zambuto quartz mirror is over $5000 alone!), here is an opportunity to save yourself a considerable wait, and you can purchase it at $2500 under my cost (invoices for mirror and telescope are available). I ordered this scope because I wanted a light-weight, easily transportable scope, but I have begun to have misgivings that at my age, even a scope this size is too much for me to handle alone. I've taken delivery at this point, but will sell if someone comes forward.
