Price drop, Planewave CDK-12.5
This telescope was purchased new in 2008 and it includes the following:
Planewave CDK 12.5 pyrex mirror, 2.75" Hedrick focuser, 2.75" to 2" eyepiece adapter, primary to secondary spacer tool, Ronchi ocular eyepiece, Electronic Focuser Adapter kit, adapter from 2.75" Hedrick focuser to 2.7" Astro-Physics accessory thread and shipping crate.
I paid $10,800 when I bought it. Buyer pays shipping from zipcode 03063 in Nashua, NH. The original shipping document reported a crated weight of 163 lbs. UPS estimates residence to residence shipping at between $450 and $650 in the lower 48 states.
This has proven to be an excellent telescope for the type of seeing we have in New Hampshire and it has been a joy to use. It has always resided in my garage when it was not rolled onto my driveway for imaging. The rigid focuser and temperature stable optical design were well matched for my relatively heavy camera.
I included two CCD Inspector results from when I initially aligned the telescope.
Also shown is my last image of M27 from August 2017 timeframe as well as earlier images.
