Well, I hate to do it, but I am selling off my astrophotography setup. My wife and I decided that we like the house more than the pretty pictures I was hoping to create. This C8 is an awesome scope and has been upgraded with knobs for easy collimation. I finally got tired of messing around with the height of the front leg and made a latitude adjuster for the wedge so you can get perfect polar alignment much faster. Also includes the cigarette lighter style 12V DC cord and a 1.25" visual back. I will include a picture with insets of the extra items, but you can email me for a link to a webpage with all the details and bigger pictures. I need the money soon, so I am going to ask for Postal Money Orders in payment this time. I will miss this scope, but you will love it.

Celestron C8 Hard Case w/Wheels (New $215.00)
Heavy Duty Adjustable Tripod and Wedge with Precision Latitude Adjustment Modification (New $400)
