How are the optics? Obviously CA should be minimal, but how about the quality overall?
I assume it did not arrive in that fine condition?

I haven't touched a thing and yes it arrived as you see it. I haven't even wax or wiped it down. <smile> It isn't mint but in amazing shape, including the wooden box. It has been cloudy here the last 3 days so it hasn't seen its first light. Cosmetically the optics are pristine. The build quality is superb! The mount is extremly stout.

BTW, I'm curious what the sticker on the inside of the case says

Even the original bubble wrap!
What an amazing scope! How exciting that it is in such mint condition - I'm really glad you got this gem! Thank you for all the pictures. Now I have to get a paper towel to wipe the drool off of my keyboard!
