I purchased this OTA from another sky watcher in March of this year downsizing from a Mewlon 250.  I find I need to further downsize due to back issues.  The following is from the previous owner's ad.

The scope is in excellent condition optically and mechanically. It was serviced by TNR in May, 2018. The focuser is very smooth and with no image shift and the CAA works very smoothly. There are two scratches on the dew shield (see photos). The objective has minor dust (according to TNR unnecessary to clean). The tube ring has scratches where the bolt touches the ring.

Comes with CAA, 2” adaptor, 2” to 1"1/4 adaptor, front/rear caps, Takahashi tube holder, ADM Takahashi D-plate, the extra (for the 4” focuser model) counterweight ring, the TOA-150 handle (makes mounting much easier), a dew heater, and a custom made handle that attaches to the counterweight ring. Included is also a mint condition Pelican 1740 ($350 value) that makes transportation of this heavy scope much easier and secure.

I have had the OTA out twice and was very please with the views.  I had planned to start photography with it, but have not had the time.  My home is surrounded by trees, and I would need to transport everything to an open location.  The OTA has not bee the greatest limited of transport, that is my EM400 which I am also selling.

Thanks for looking
