Looks like there were/are a couple of versions of this and the latest one is a different colour (e.g. https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/orion-optics-uk-maksutov-telescope-mc-140-2000-omc-carbon-ota/p,60101) - do you if this is the standard or deluxe?

I owned them both and compared them, this is not the carbon deluxe version, but a part from an aesthetic factor they are 100% the same scope and don't differ at all in performances :) I actually found slightly sharper this one in a side to side comparison, that's why I sold 1 year ago the deluxe one and kept this one.

I am selling it only to fund an expensive refractor I recently bought from here, the Televue 127is

I am very confused about the price showing on that website now? On orion optics website it's over £1000? Mmm...

This is the original version from about year 2000. 

Is there a Zygo certificate with it?

Yes correct! There was a certificate yes, which I have no idea where now it is. I think the photos of jupiter and saturn I took with it can show enough regarding its quality anyway :)

@Ironus

Hello, can you confirm which level of optics your current purple OMC140 OTA has please - standard or deluxe ?

Hello! I am not sure honestly, I only know it performed slightly better than the carbon deluxe I had, so it must surely have the deluxe updrade, otherwise would be really odd to explain!
