2009 Model, with about 20 trail nights, and 2 holes, repaired with McNett "Clear Tape".
EDIT: Not shown is the "Pole Cover" that fits over the sleeved pole, providing additional tie-outs for harsh weather.
One hole (thanks to a mouse) is opposite the door at floor level –
The 2nd hole (mishap) is on the door of the fly –
Stakes are Not included.
$419 New, yours for $200 includes shipping CONUS.

Why are you selling it? Didn't like it, doesn't fit your needs, duplicates anoher shelter, tarping now…?Oct 2, 2011 at 7:46 pm #1785943
I happen to have 2 Photons. This one has seen more wear.
I think it is a great tent.
Easy and fast to set up.
Packs small and easy, even when wet or frosty.
It's solid in nasty weather.
With the low, tight fly and high-walled inner it's warmer than most.
It is tall on the ends so the foot of the bag stays dry, and my face isn't in the netting.
I can cook in it (carefully) in foul weather.
It has plenty of vestibule for gear.
I've tried Many shelters.
The Photon keeps coming back to the top.Oct 6, 2011 at 6:11 pm #1787533

How much does it weigh? I'm sure the 2011 weights differs from the 2009 model.Oct 6, 2011 at 7:37 pm #1787565
On my scale it is 30.5 ounces.
That includes the poles, pole cover, and stuff sacks (but not stakes).Oct 7, 2011 at 2:00 pm #1787814
How many stakes does it take for a minimum set up and for a secure, high wind set up?Oct 8, 2011 at 1:57 pm #1788118
The "offical" stake count is 12 – 2 off each end, 2 "pull-outs" at each end, 2 at the ends of the pole, and 2 on the pole sleeve.
I get by with 10 by doubling up the lines at the ends.
For "high winds" there have been a number of mods posted by folks adding lines to the "pole cover". I've never felt need for them. Site selection, even in a treeless alpine area, will trump additional lines, IMHO.Oct 14, 2011 at 8:45 am #1790453
