I'm selling my x12g as its become too much for my knees to move up and down the stairs! I hate to let it go as it provides great views, being f/5 (and a huge mirror).

Optics are great and clean- there is a little dust on the primary but never enough for me to bother with cleaning.

Both tubes and the trusses are excellent to mint- I can't find any dings or even scratches.

The 2-speed focuser's 1.25 adapter was garbage, so I did buy a new one with a band-style clamp instead of a screw. Works great.

Comes with the Orion 'padded' bags for the optics. Its a separate case for the mirror section, the upper mirror, and the truss (if you've not seen it). They are supposed to be padded, but they really aren't. They do make carrying the pieces very easy.

The base is in good shape, no issues. Velco was added by the previous owner for the handset, and its in the perfect spot so I never moved it.

Handset was replaced as previous owner was computer controlling or something. The handset is in great shape and has fairly up to date firmware on it (I can check the exact version if you'd like)

Goto performance on this scope has been very very good for me. As long as the base is leveled, it really tracks and finds well. It has encoders, so you can align it and still push it around- it won't lose its alignment.

Colimation knobs were changed to tool-less on the primary and secondary so very easy to adjust.

Comes with:
1. xx12g tube and base with controller
2. 12v and 120v adapters
3. Cases for optics
4. Case blanket for Base Pieces
5. Shroud
6. Solar filter
7. Celestron 8mm-24mm zoom eyepiece
8. Celeston colimation eyepiece

I would ship this if it was possible. It just isn't. It would have to be palletized, and honestly if you want to pay for all that, it will be cheaper to just buy a new one :-)

I'm in south Denver, Colorado. Certainly can discuss meeting you somewhere.
Let me know if *any* questions, or if you want to see more pics, try it out, whatever. I'm in no rush so feel free to take your time too.
