Orion SkyView Pro 150mm Mak

Recommended Posts

Is this a good deal?  http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/for/4816429064.html

Looks like they no longer sell this scope directly from Orion, so I'm having a hard time determining the price.  I'm comparing it to this since it has the intelliscope upgrade kit:  http://www.telescope.com/Orion-SkyView-Pro-180mm-GoTo-Maksutov-Cassegrain-Telescope/p/24762.uts

Seems like a steal to me, but I've already got a couple scopes and don't want to jump into this unless it's a really good deal.  I'm going to check it out tomorrow and see if everything looks good and possibly make an offer.  My biggest concern is that Orion no longer sells the 150 mak.

I'm thinking about using it as a cheap planetary astrophotography rig.  If it were you, would you buy it?
