In superb optical condition and full working order but does have some scratches to the plastic on the arms (see pictures) Apart from this the scope is awesome and as plastic scratches can't be seen in the dark when your using it what difference does it make :)
This is the predecessor to the CPC1100 telescope and in my opinion is in almost every way. It is superior as it has USA optics, low expansion Carbon fiber tube, better clutches and superb USA build quality.
