Celestron CG-11 with Losmandy mount purchased August ‘97
selling because of graduate school in Ohio: no time anymore!
11” Schmidt-cassegrain telescope
German equatorial dual axis drive mount
Internal Polar alignment scope
Adjustable, large diameter legs
re-machined dovetail clamp (fixes a manufacturing problem)
extra counterweight (different size, works perfectly, necessary for astrophotography)
brand-new hand controller
50mm finder with blinking, illuminated reticle
Updated, easy-release dovetail bracket for finder
25mm plossel eyepiece
Bonus: Losmandy deep-sky filter!
Telescope is in storage in northwest Washington (I'm in Ohio).
I will be there for 4 days only on June 14-17. We must close the deal and payment before that time. Telescope was in excellent condition, optically and mechanically last time used (1.5 years ago), but I won’t have much time for thorough testing. I have some dew heaters and a homemade illuminator attached with duct tape (see picture [piggyback scope not included, all astrophotos taken through this telescope]). I will gladly remove at buyer's discretion, but it is possible that some tape marks will remain (should come off with solvent), limited time to do this very thoroughly.
reduced price to $2500.
Also, if you can work with me through my time constraints,
I WILL PAY SHIPPING! (which could be substantial)
--shipping paid within continental US, up to $200 for other regions
--Minus $200 from price, a 30 amp-hour gel-cell battery, and maybe an extra counterweight (depending on whether I can find it) if you pick up (any day after June 14th, near Bellingham, WA), and will be given preference.
I will be glad to answer any questions you have by email, or if you call in the evening: 614 262 4591 (EST). I will also be glad to help the buyer with instructions and advice on use.
