Well used Orion ED80. Rings and Vixen style dovetail. Hotech Self Centering field flattener. 3D printed Benway Bahtinov mask. I bought this used a year ago. I have gotten my dream scope and my girlfriend thinks having a bedroom full of optics is not ideal. (I may list her in a separate ad)

There are multiple scratches on the OTA and dew shield. I would rate the optics perfect or nearly so. No coating degradation or anything beyond transient dust. I have pictured the flaws as clearly as possible so that there are no surprises or disappointment. But I believe when you view or process images, you will forget the scratched tube. The dovetail is also well worn, the gorilla previous owner sure didn't have to worry about his scope falling off! The Hotech field flattener is only a couple months old. Includes original caps and box. I believe this package would go a long way to getting someone started or even as a nearly turn key setup for their existing rig. I had a Moonlite focuser on it, thinking that some uneven stars I was getting was due to to the focuser. Turned out it was the cheapo T ring I was using. (get a Baader or Vixen unit and don't suffer like I did!) I did the maintenance on this focuser, flattened the surface the shaft rides on, relubricated everything. It is a serviceable as these focusers get. The 2-1.25" adapter is threaded to mate to a T ring. This price is around half the cost of new for all, using USPS for shipping.

I have the Moonlite adapter for this scope, but if you are buying a complete replacement focuser, it will come with one. But if you would like to have it, I think $40 is a fair price.

Thank you for looking. Price includes PayPal fees and shipping to US (will ship anywhere for the cost of shipping) I will need a day after payment to get this in the mail, but like you, when I pay for something I want it ASAP. So, I will get it to you as fast as possible.
