This is a used 180 Mak from a customer trade-in who barely used it.  It comes complete with all of the standard accessories listed below.  It is in excellent, practically like new condition, with clean optics and unmarked body.  This is a great savings off of the new price and will not last. 
   
This comes in a Costco-style hard plastic case with lid, with its original packing foam.  Due to its size, we cannot ship this item; it is for in-store pickup only.

If you’re seeking crisp, contrasty views with high levels of detail, look no further than the Skymax series, Sky-Watcher’s premiere line of Maksutov-Cassegrains. Generally regarded as producing a sharper image than Schmidt-Cassegrains, Maksutovs offer astronomers a large visual aperture, high contrast and long focal length in a compact package. These telescopes deliver higher levels of planetary detail due to a focal length that is 5-7 times longer than your average Newtonian or refractor telescope.

Skymax Maksutovs feature mirrors constructed of borosilicate, polished and coated with our proprietary Radiant™ Aluminum Quartz™ (RAQ™) coatings, which produce a remarkable 94% reflectivity. All Maksutovs use a corrector plate to help reduce chromatic aberration, which is then coated using our signature Metallic High-Transmission Coatings™ (MHTC™), producing professional grade optics at an affordable price.

The Skymax 180 includes a 2-inch 28mm eyepiece, a 9x50 finderscope, V-style dovetail, and a 2-inch diagonal.
