Well, I have added a Goto to my collection. Seller shipped scope today and the legs will go out tomorrow. It looks to be a complete, or near complete Goto Hy-score 451 altaz. The legs and mount look perfect in the pictures. The scope OTA looks really good as well. I'll know more once it gets here. I know it has the diagonal, porro prism, 10-20mm eyepiece, finder, box, mount & tripod, and paperwork. It also has the Goto logo cloth desiccant bags and a bunch of shredded papery looking stuff inside the box. Don't know if the lens cap or other eyepieces are present, though.
In the meantime, I noticed that the instructions for the 10-20mm eyepiece have the NTOE!! (I.e. NOTE) misspelled and I remember seeing that on a previous post about these scopes. Does anyone remember what year or years that typo occurred?
For Bomber Bob, the complete warranty card in the sellers photos give it a serial number of #278. Hopefully it'll have a Japan inspection tag too, but I'll have to wait and see.
I promise to post pictures when it arrives. I just love the Goto logo on the tripod leg bolts.
