TMB-152/1200 CNC-II with mounting rings, Losmandy dovetail plate, ScopeGuard case and Astro-Physics field flattener.  This 6" f/7.9 Apo refractor has excellent optics, with a triplet lens designed by the late Thomas M. Bach, and a 3.5" Feathertouch focuser.  The field flattener is an Asto-Physics 67PF582, which pairs well with the scope, and provides a very wide clear field.  (It worked well for me with a KAF 16803 CCD, which has a sensor larger than a full frame DSLR.)  Great condition, only minor scuffing on tube from normal wear.   Purchased new/I am the original owner.  This scope has been a joy to use, I am selling only because at my age I have developed some back issues and need to downsize what I carry to the field.
Pickup in Northern Virginia/DC Metro Area. 

Weight:  29 lb, perhaps 30 with rings and dovetail plates.
Aperture 152mm, Focal Length 1200 mm, APO triplet uses LZOS OK-4 glass (approx. equivalent to FPL-53).
Scope tube currently has a base attached for a Telrad finder which should be easy to remove, or you can have the Telrad for no charge.
 --Rings with top Losmandy dovetail plates attached top and bottom.
 --Scopeguard case (lighweight ATA design with butterfly latches and wheels at one end)
 --AP Field flattener 67PF582
 --Extension tube (came with scope)
