Boyz and girlz, it is time for this scope to find a new home. If you don't think the price is right, please make an offer.

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 they are available for $10. (I can give you the web address.)
Asking $325 plus shipping for everything, or will sell separately: $275 for the scope and mount or $85 for the wedge/tripod, plus shipping. (I COULD drop off on the I95 corridor between PA & FL in early May, or maybe in Chiefland on 5/11.) Money Orders only.
(Why am I selling? IRS cleaned me out. Something has to go!)
