I bought this scope last year with good intentions of making it my ultralight backpack scope, but I have to part with it to buy some new bins. It is a straight body and comes with the two most elusive eyepieces largely considered the holy grail on the ED50 : MC 27x wide and the MCII 13-40x zoom. I bought both eyepieces new and the MCII is still new in box. I put the 27x on the spotter, but it has not been in the field. Everything is like new mint condition. I would prefer to sell it all as a complete package for $975 shipped , but will sell with the 27x only for $700.
