Ultimate GEM Newt?

For less than $4k this seems like a great deal: https://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/prop...hp?view=150914

Of course Iíll need another $4k for an EQ8 or similar

Iíd suggest make him an offer for the important bits but leave out the tube itself on the basis you assemble one for yourself locally, ie
- mirror and mirror cell,
- secondary mirror and spider,
- focusser.

The rest isnít worth shipping.

Just be thoughtful as to whether you trust international delivery with such a bulky piece of equipment. You'd be surprised how roughly parcels are sometimes treated! Furthermore, with classified ads there isn't anyone to risk getting a bad reputation if they send something broken or dodgy and don't reimburse/fix.
Good luck with your purchase...sometimes a little risk is the spice of life
