Excellent. Some of HP's lower-end scopes are rebadged Rigols; I wonder if yours is one of those models. I've heard they're quite nice but I haven't used one myself.

The CRT on my "daily driver" 7834 is like new, but the one in my dead frame is a bit worn.
I'm jealous of your 611. I have a "parts" 611 here, raped of several components and the covers. I missed out on a complete one on eBay last week; I was very disappointed about that.
Have you done anything interesting with yours?
