Classic C90 Astro
Classic Celestron C90 Astro, 90mm f/11 Mak Cassegrain with “one-armed bandit” motor-driven mount, 5x24 finder, .96” diagonal and 30mm Celestron .96” Kellner, rare C90 Astro Wedge, and classic Celestron “locking triangles” tripod for the highest stiffness/weight ratio possible. All good condition except some chrome pitting on the tripod legs (see picture --- Simichrome, Wesley’s wax and elbow grease will resolve that!) No plastic here except for the lens cap and focusing ring! And C90’s have nice images --- I used my old one to see the day to day changes on Jupiter when Shoemaker-Levy crashed into it. Note that the ¼-20 mounting pad is not used in mounting the C90 to the “fork” so that you can flip the tube, putting the pad on top, and use it as a camera tracking platform. (I used to do this a lot with a Meade 2045 – this scope should also work well that way.) I never had the C90/8/11/14 three-prong 110 VAC power cord, but Telescope Warehouse (http://www.astronomy-mall.com/telescope-warehouse)
advertises them for $10 in the “Hot New Items” section for $10.
Asking $425 plus shipping for everything, O.W.S.S --- $360 for the scope and $140 for the wedge/tripod, plus shipping. Money Orders only.
(Why am I selling? Bought a B&L 6” SCT at a bad time, bills-wise. Something has to go! And I can still sneak the 6” on the plane. You take THIS one to Florida!)
