This scope was one sold with enhanced coatings on the corrector. Unfortunately, like some Meade SCTs of the period, the corrector plate coating has failed. As a result, it has a noticeable "fog" to it.
The foggy corrector reduces the image brightness by maybe about 10-15% - certainly detrimental, but not enough to ruin the scope. The optical quality is really good - the stars are refractor-like pinpoints - and the telescope holds collimation quite well - making it a good lunar/planetary instrument. The OTA has also been fully flocked for maximum contrast. Coatings on the primary and secondary mirrors are pristine.

Comes with caps, an ADM dovetail with the usual bites on it, and either a 1.25" or 2" visual back depending on what you prefer.

$150 + shipping.
