From some of the pictures (4 of them) things look okay but no better. Didn't post pictures i was sent as i am not sure that is okay. Looks like a old school focuser not like the newer ones and the aluminum has discoloration, oxidation looks like. So figure to have mirror re-coated and s/h both ways around a thousand dollars or is it more? There is no goto or setting circles or hand controller etc. Its push to system. Not sure what would be a fair price to pay. Or should i just pass and wait for a newer one to pop up. any help would be appreciated.

Just to get it.  The rest comes later. Maybe coatings can wait...
