Neville, Thanks for the info. Good suggestions! As for dealer support and warrenty all would still be in effect and transfers with the scope. The price is not set in concrete and can be negotiable if a reasonable offer is made as well as shipping if not someone in AZ where it would not have to be shipped. The price may be confusing as there is also a laptop that can or cannot be included. Your right this rotator cuff injury is not much fun to deal with.

I had a rotator cuff injury years ago and I know it's no fun. For me, certain motions hurt like heck, while others didn't hurt at all. This setup might work for you. I'm looking for a set of wheely bars myself and I noticed a bunch of JMI's for sale on Astromart at a decent discount. Obviously there will still be times you do need to lift it, so you could use Randy's approach. Perhaps a set of Peterson Engineering's Get-A-Grip ergonomic handles might help. If you're still bent on selling it, try listing it on Astromart, and/or Craig's List. I know you've only used it once, but IMHO, you have it priced too high. Personally, I would rather pay the additional $234, and buy it new. It would be worth it to get the dealer support, and full warranty.

Most people I observe with would be happy to do so - except the ones with a bad back or something like what you have. I wouldn't have a problem helping to lift it for you if we were observing together!

Tack sharp with Advanced Richey-Chretien optics. I must part with it because I have a rotator cuff injury which prevents me from placing it on it's tripod by myself. Comes with all standard accessories - 26mm Series 5000 5-Element Plossl, GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser, 1.5 Diagonal, Smart Drive, Smart Mount, Autostar II, Instruction Booklet, Software, Heavy Duty Tripod and Power Cable. It does not come standard with a power supply for household current! Note that I have included in the pricing a Compaq Presario Pentium II Laptop Computer which contains Windows XP Pro, Office XP Pro, CD/DVD Player, 3.5 Floppy Drive, Mouse, and Extra Battery with The Sky 6 Pro and MaxIm DL loaded, All Connecting Cables, Backup Software and Instruction Booklets. Price $ 400. This means you can drive the scope with either the Autostar II or from the laptop using The Sky 6 Pro (basically just point and click). If you plan to use the computer for imaging by CCD you would need to purchase a multi socket-USB attachment and an external hard drive as the computer has limited hard drive space for storage purposes. Should you not want the laptop deduct $ 400 from the overall price. The scope price alone is then $ 3,400 Firm a savings of $ 234 from the dealer price. Buyer pays shipping or we might negotiate that somewhat. Note all forms of payment except cash must clear the bank before shipment. 480-981-1295 reaches me here in Mesa, AZ.
