This is a 1 year old Celestron C9.25 OTA. This package includes a Rigel Quickfinder with two bases mounted. Optics are very good as far as I can tell - five craterlets detectable in Plato in good seeing. The scope has one minor cosmetic issue that has no effect on it's function - the rubber focus knob has a round impression 4mm in diameter where the end of a set screw from an add-on aluminum focus knob contacted it, along with a few shallower marks on the focus knob from the same source. The scope is otherwise in excellent condition.
I will ship the scope in it's original double box with foam. Please note that the 6x30 finder and 1.25 inch visual back that came with the scope are not included with this package.
I am asking $725 with the Quickfinder plus $25 FedEx Ground shipping. In addition, the following items are available:
Orion 9x50 right-angle, correct-image finderscope with Celestron's quick-release finder bracket. Add $75.
Astrozap flexible dew shield. Add $25.
Televue 2 inch short-nose Everbrite diagonal with shorty SCT adapter.
Eight months old, in excellent condition. The short design reduces SCT optical aberrations by bringing the length of the light path out the back of the scope closer to the ideal 100mm, and it reduces conflicts with some fork mounts. Add $210.
Grand package deal - $1035 shipped for everything.
I will ship on receipt of a money order or clearance of a personal check. Sorry no Paypal. Thank you. More pictures are available on request.
