    I just acquired a used one to experiment with. Two things I noticed up front are; the focuser is all plastic but 2", and the secondary mirror seems to be thin glass in a plastic holder (my mirror slide around in the plastic holder). The main mirror seems okay, and the tube and end trim pieces seem okay. I don't have the Meade mount, so i have zero comments on that portion of the scope.
