I didn't see the pic reference in your original post. Thanks.
I actually looked at this scope at Sean's earlier this month and would have bought it except I bought a 60's 3" f15 Solarama just a few months earlier from the same person who had this one on consignment...John Siple.
He offered this scope to me before he put it on consignment at Sean's, and his description indicated that it had never come out of the box until he aquired it. You essentially have a NEW classic scope in as good a condition as the day it was shipped from the factory!
Excellent choise, and I'm sure it will continue to please you for many years to come.
PS How do you rate the Antares Plossl against a generic Meade Plossl or higher end EPs such as orthoscopics? I'm assuming these are Taiwanese manufacture? For star testing, right now its a toss-up for me between using the 1.25" EP with hybrid diagonal or straight through with my not-so-hot Japanese .965s that came with my various classic scopes. It would be nice to upgrade and get some good straight through shots.
