Intes MN66 Maksutov Newtonian 6" F/6 Telescope - $1650 + shipping

Tube exterior has multiple paint chips/scuffs but the the rest of the telescope is in excellent condition including the optics, except for one small scratch which can be seen in image 7 (link below).
It was there when I purchased the scope second hand and has no effect on the wonderful views you get through this telescope.

Excellent condition overall (just a small paint chip covered by white tape) and functions perfectly.
