I have one and it's a great day time scope. Sharp, very little color, great accessories. Love the tripod where the legs pop out and the slo mo adapter. Flatter field of view than the 9VR and others that are not stopped down as much. But that's where the rub is, side by side, 999VR is a bit dimmer but has a more pleasing image for daytime use.

Worth the asking but know that as a Astro scope, it's probably more like a 40 to 50mm f7 or so, but a very good one. I've seen great bird photos taken with it. Oh yeah, don't try popping that baffle out.....images goes to pot.
