Going to look at one of these on Friday.

It's 2nd hand but alledgedly never been used and comes with a GSO base instead of the SW one (not sure why).

Any advice on anything I should look out for before I hand over my hard earned cash?

Make sure the primary aint scratched or marked - a bit of dust is ok so long as nothing sticky or sharp has been in contact with it. The SW bases do wear out - Martyns thinking of changing his. Check it glides up down and around easilly and has just enough "sticktion" to stay in place for observing. A little wear and tear on theube is fine so long as the optics can line up and be collimatable. :)
