This is an excellent telescope and I am selling it only because I am upgrading to a larger instrument. I purchased it new about a year ago and it is in like-new condition. The optics are excellent, the "Go To" feature is quite accurate and the scope operates quietly. The optical tube assembly weighs only about 28lbs., which makes this an ideal instrument for the astronomer or casual viewer who wants a telescope that is easy to set up, use for a nights viewing and then disassemble for storage in a few minutes. Detailed technical information can be found on Celestron's web site. Included are the following:
Optical Tube Assembly
1.25" Visual Back
Computerised Hand Control (18,000+ objects in memory)
