Bintel 8" Reflector F/5 OTA with rings & dovetail

I recently purchased a mount and scope but did not want the scope.
I think itís a 2010 model BINTEL BT200 8 INCH - 200mm f/5 Imaging OTA
These cost $449 new, see web site I'm after $250

The optical tube has a slight dent as seen in photos but does not affect performance in any way.
I have used it visually and it looks great with clear sharp optics as you would expect.

Comes with
35mm extension tube
50mm extension tube
Original packaging
$250 + actual shipping costs. Pickup in Artarmon or Dee Why in Sydney.

Note: does not come with any eyepieces.
