I've lowered the price to $2k total plus shipping pick up by buyer if bought out of Michigan, as that will vary based on location.
Buyer also pays shipping (I have all original boxes, need to weight them and gear for shipment calcualtion to where you live)
>>I prefer in Michigan 1st choice, in 48 US states as 2nd choice
AVS friends in Michigan, time for me to sell some of my “stuff”, this is real astronomy gear.
Great for visual viewing and also DLSR imaging.
If interested let me know, if you know of someone who is and it sells to them I’ll pay you a $50 finders fee upon closing the deal.

No, I've not given up my hobby, just focusing on wide angle imaging.
Due to lifestage with young kids it's not practical for me to be serious with this gear, in 10 years I'll get back into this.
