OK, let's try this again! This was purchased new 2.5 months ago, (Nov. 2019) and used twice.
It is BLACK, not 'white'(as many of you thought), since what you see is the Manufacturer's Tissue Paper STILL untouched and on the OTA!
The 'Silver' you see is Reflectix, which INSULATES an SCT or Mak, so you do NOT have to wait for 'cool down' or 'thermal acclimation'! It is the FIRST item I add to ANY Cassegrain when I get it, and it HAS been removed!
Now, this C6 (With Vixen Dovetail Bar) is 'redundant' in my line up, and so must be passed on to another.
I used this once on my Unistar Mount, and another time on my Evolution Mount. After it's long, multi-thousand mile trip to me, Collimation was close to perfect, and it took just a little tweak to get it perfect! (You should ALWAYS check collimation after an SCT is shipped to you!). Focusing is firm with a solid response. Mirror shift is minimal, and above 45-degrees almost non existent.
The BIG attraction of this scope to me, especially when Insulated, is that it's a lightweight Grab-N-Go, steady on a simple Alt/Az Mount, with 6-Inches of Aperture(!), with perfect views the minute you take it out the door! Priced a 6-Inch APO Refractor lately???
When I first received this, Saturn was setting very low in the SW, in thick, turbulent atmosphere. Yet 220X Magnification, tack sharp, was no problem! I can only imagine how good it will be with the Planets higher up!
All the included accessories are here, and... UN-USED! They include the 6X30 FinderScope, 1.25" Diagonal, and a 25mm Plossl. The Finder Bracket, Front Cap, and the Visual Back were attached to the scope already.
The Owner's Manual, Registration Card (not filled out) and Free Download are all included, as is all the Original Packaging! I can find nary a mark anywhere on this OTA, and can't even find a speck of dust on the front corrector (If YOU find one, just blow it off!).
Shipping is a Flat $25 (FAR less than my actual shipping cost), via Fully Insured FedEx,Within The Contiguous 48 States, the ONLY area to which I ship! So, the Total will be...….. $274.
Payment is via PayPal ONLY, and Please.... Do NOT use 'Friends & family', since I, as the Seller, Pay ALL Fees, as REQUIRED by PayPal!
Thanks to all for your time and consideration!
