This is a collector's item.  This telescope has exquisite optics.
It has been perfectly aligned by Mr. Al Nagler himself, at the Texas Star Party.
 
The lenses were made in Japan, and were too expensive, so production was stopped. 
Only 37 were ever made.
5.5" APO,  f/5, 700 mm f.l.  The low power fov is 4 degrees. 
The dew shield is very slightly bent, which does not effect performance.
This scope won the Winter Star Party astrophotogaphy contest, with a picture of Eta Carinae.
A 30x40" laminated copy of this photo  goes with the scope. See attached picture.
The Gibraltar field mount is included.  

A Losmandy GM 8 mount is also included., along with mounting plates and 5 1/2" and 3" rings.
A Pronto OTA is included, which which was used as the guidescope for astrophotography.
Included is a 5X Powermate, which was designed just for the TV 140. 

I am 80 years old, and have health issues.
So, I am passing this splendid telescope on to the next generation, to enjoy as much as I have.
