November 20, 2010

The Nikon Fluophot arrived in a crate on Wednesday, November 17, 2010. It was crated very well and the crate was in good condition with no broken or crushed edges. That was a relief. The truck backed right up to my sidewalk and the driver lifted the crate off and carried it up onto my porch. That was very nice of him. It was not as heavy as I expected, but I still detached the box from the pallet and carried it into the house.

The company that sold it to me had disassembled the main parts and packed them separately in bubble wrap and put all the parts into a large cardboard box with styrofoam peanuts. Very good package job there too. When I unpacked everything, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this scope looked almost new. No scratches, no scuffs, no dings or dents and it was all there. And once it had warmed up and I had reassembled it and plugged it in, it worked first time. Here are some pictures taken today of parts of the scope.
