A better scope of this vintage would be hard to find unless it was in a museum! Rarely used, and in excellent condition. Mirror is spotless, and star test is good which is typical for these orange tube marvels. Celestron/Vixen 8x50 illuminated Polaris finder, Celestron 1.25" visual back, diagonal, and Losmandy dovetail plate included.

Note: A few years ago this scope was tuned up at Celestron, they reduced mirror shift, tested and collimated optics (obviously re-collimated a few times since), and replaced the accessory back with the modern version so that thread pitch is no problem with modern accessories - This is a rare but important modification.

$550 + Shipping. PayPal Okay (+3% if credit card is used).

Other Accessories:
Orion dew shield, Neoprene reversible dew shield, Losmandy piggyback adapter, Orion full aperture solar filter, Pelican 1620 case, Hartmann mask. If these items are of interest, a package price can be offered.

I have more photos available on request.

Thanks for looking.
