Just picked it up this morning. Its a 2009 TOA150. In excellent condition. I just switched over the Moonlite focuser from the TSA120. Got lucky for the first time as it uses the same flange so it was screw off - screw on :21: . Got it on the mount but need another counter weight to balance properly.

Hope to try it out soon.
