Selling a really excellent spotting scope setup.  This almost convinced me to sell my Questar field model but my wife insisted that she preferred it slightly over this so I am forced to keep the Questar and sell this one.

Celestron Regal 100F-ED scope with the well regarded Flourite lens gives excellent views.  In very good to excellent condition, glass is perfect to my eye, just a few small scuffs on the gray exterior surface of the tube.  Includes original zoom eyepiece, original box and packaging, carrying bag with shoulder strap, eyepiece adapter to fit T-ring for photography and a "balancing rail" which allows a range of positioning on the mount. Essentially everything that was originally in the box is there including the screw on eyepiece protector tube thing.  This scope can use any 1.25" eyepiece but I found that the included zoom is of very good quality and satisfies almost all viewing situations.  

Bogen/Manfrotto #3068 tripod in very good to excellent condition with just a few minor signs of use.  This tripod is not super light but plenty easy to carry out to a field with scope in bag over shoulder.  The tripod is extremely stable and extremely flexible, able to go really low for sitting on a low bench or as high as you want for stand-up observing and has the cool rising center column which makes instant height changes easy.  

Manfrotto #393 head in excellent condition.  This is similar in function to any of the alt-az cradle style mounts like the Televue Telepod.  Works perfectly with this scope.  Well balanced, easy smooth motions and includes a handy quick release saddle/plate that makes mounting the scope take a couple seconds and holds securely.  

Looking to sell the whole package since it all works so well together but will consider breaking it up so feel free to inquire. The scope retailed for around $1,500 when new as far as I can tell.  Scope only, $650 shipped.  Manfrotto #393 head sells for $285 new, will sell for $150 shipped.  Bogen/Manfrotto #3068 tripod was, well, I don't know exactly but it is an awesome tripod, $150 shipped.  Package price $800 shipped to your door, Paypal fees included.
