I've relisted this item due to non-payment from the buyer. I have only used this telescope twice since I bought it a few years ago (for $3000), so it is in near-perfect condition aside from a few specks of corrosion on the tripod stand. This is an excellent, easy-to-use telescope which would be a great starting point to seriously dive into the hobby. I'm only selling this as I don't have enough free time to use it (otherwise I'de keep it!). Comes with a case of many different scopes and lenses to assist in viewing celestial objects.
