TPO 12" f/4 Imaging Newtonian OTA

Purchased this OTA a few years ago. It was used visually only - I never did any AP with it.  Provides great views of nebulae, galaxies, and other DSOs, and performs surprisingly well on the moon and planets also. The OTA is equipped with a huge 3.3" Crayford focuser - probably overkill for a 12" f/4. Includes tube rings, a top-mounted dovetail bar, and an aluminum mounting plate for attaching to the saddle of an AP800 mount. The mount shown in the photo is NOT included in this sale. No finderscope or eyepieces are included, but there is a base for a red-dot finder mounted to the OTA.    

The tube has a few scratches from handling, nothing too serious. The optics are a bit dusty - they have never been cleaned. 

I would prefer to meet part way or have a buyer pick the OTA up, as opposed to shipping.  Las Cruces or Lordsburg, NM or anwhere in between would be easiest for me.  I'd rather not ship this, but if a buyer wants to pay for packing, I would be willing to take the OTA to the nearest FedEx or UPS store and let the buyer pay them directly for packing and shipping.

Thanks for checking out my ad!
