Saxon ED100 +auto focuser+ reducer corrector +bag

Hi all, i am selling my scope as i have recently bought a Newtonian. This scope is a saxon ed100. with out reducer it is FL 900mm D100mm F9. with the reducer it is FL 765mm D100 F7.65
I have made several modifications to it to improve its quality and i believe it is a perfect all in one deal for someone starting in astro photography.
I have flocked some of the inside of the focuser to remove internal reflection.
I have improved the focuser and tightened it all up. it has essentially 0 tilt now.
I have put an automatic focuser on it which works with ascom very smoothly. works a treat in SGP. (this is a permanent mod)
It will also come with a soft bag and batnov mask.
includes finder scope, Visual tools, eye piece, M42 and M48 nikon camera adapters!
I will list the price of all items i am including and then what i will sell the bundle for.
Brand NEW: scope $1200 corrector/reducer $400 Focuser to build $ 100 Bag $100 total $1800

I will sell everything together for $1200, the scope works better now then when first bought after the work i have put into it. Perfect setup up for a starting scope. i have CCDinspecter plots and graphs to show optic performance if required, and here are some images i have taken with it. All you will need to do is bracket the focuser motor onto your dovetail and you will be ready to go!
