I am the original owner. This is a truly beautiful telescope and it is easy to use. Anyone familiar with a typical dobsonian reflector will be right at home, and collimating is a breeze. The Goto functionality works perfectly after aligning with two stars or objects, or you can manually push the scope to the object you want to view. After centering the object, the GoTo can be engaged and the scope will keep the object in the center of the eyepiece so you don't need to keep adjusting the scope as the object changes position (or more accurately Earth changes position...). This feature is incredibly handy.

This scope delivers spectacular views, and is just gorgeous to look at. Willing to part with to a buyer accepting personal delivery by me in the British Columbia or Washington State area. Alternatively buyer could pick up in Victoria, British Columbia.

Also included are two foldable aluminum wheel ramps, handy when loading the scope into the back of an SUV, pickup, etc.
