Hard to tell condition, but it looks like a complete rig, with all the manuals, mount, tripod, goodies.

Mike...To me these babies are worth persuing if your into these sct's. I cut my teeth on these 5's and 8's back in the early 70's. I just plain like their simple no nonsense B.S. looks and operation!

I had bought one of those some years back off A_MART and it was a gorgeous scope optically. I found it almost as much work as my C8 to set up for daily use and sold it, but I do miss it now. It could be fit (tube plus drive base) into a carry on size piece of soft luggage with a backpacking pad for cusioning, but the AC synchronous motors didn't have provision for reversing for Southern Hemisphere. Oh well. I'll just have to pass on this, I don't need a 5th scope...
