This is a Compustar from the 80's A great goto mount and 8" tube. It all works well. The tube is the original with Starbright coatings. This is one of their best c-8s. The tripod is a heavy duty tripod with the beefier wedge. Comes with all the Compustar cables and electronics. It also has the joystick for easier guiding. The joystick has been modified for The attachment of an SBIG CCD camera so it can also autoguide. It will come with a 1/4 visual back.
a 25mm ep,and a 6x30 finder and bracket. Hard case for the mount and tube. and a desert storm cover(used). Manual is also included. Its also capable of linking with "the Sky" software version 4 or 5 for remote access. A special made cable is included for this as well. This is a great setup for a small observatory and or groups/organizations. It has some minor wear from normal use. There is one leg clamp missing. One thing one may worry about is the "Y2K" thing. Its no big deal. It will still find objects no problem. There is an upgrade available if you feel its needed. There is a compustar fan page on the internet that is also a usergroup. I have had this mount and scope for several years and have enjoyed it immensly. I am selling to fund a whole new project. See Pic. I am open to offers.
Asking $1100 + shipping. Or a trade ST237 or ST7.
Thanx for looking
