new in box from Celestron 8" sct optical tube assembly.
Bare ota with 1.25" visual back, front and rear covers
in original celestron shipping box opened only for
inspection. The foams from the shipping box can be used
to make a nice trunk case for the ota. No mount, no other
hardware. List at $1300 +, retail typically $700 + since
I'm not a celestron dealer, how about $500 shipped? Don't
buy some well travelled problem optical tube - this is
brand new and untouched, and recently made, during a peak
time of Celestron quality.
