This mid-90s Celestar 8 is in nearly mint condition with very little sign of use. I’ve added a Celestron 10x40 straight-through finder, a Telrad, Bob’s Knobs for easy collimation, a Moto-Dec declination motor and hard-to-find hand controller, a Celestron Motor Focus, an Orion dewshield, and a Lumicon (I’m pretty sure) piggyback bracket that’s adjustable for altitude and azimuth. It comes with the original wedgepod, 1-1/4” back, a generic star diagonal, and an Intes 2” back (but no 2” diagonal). I’ll include a Celestron 15mm Plossl, a Celestron 2x Barlow, and a generic 6mm Plossl.
I’ll sell the entire setup for $850 plus shipping. Or, I’ll sell just the scope and wedgepod with the original 1-1/4” back, 1-1/4” diagonal, and 15mm Plossl for $650, then sell the other items one by one (but only if someone buys the basic scope & wedgepod first).
It’s a very good scope. It’s just a little too large for my current situation.
