Sale of the scope and all accessories is pending. Thank you.
This mid-90s Celestar 8 is in nearly mint condition with very little sign of use.
You can buy the basic setup - OTA, wedgepod with RA motor, Celestron 10x40 straight-through finder, 1-1/4" diagonal, and a 25mm Plossl - for $600 plus shipping.
I also have the following accesories for sale, separately or together:
Bob's Knobs for easy collimation - SOLD
Celestron Moto-Dec declination motor - $70
Hard-to-find Celestron hand controller - $50
Celestron Motor Focus - $90
Orion dewshield - SOLD
Lumicon (I think) piggyback bracket, adjustable for altitude & azimuth - $20
Intes 2" back - SOLD
If you want everything, I'll sell it all for $760 plus shipping. That's a $70 discount off the price of everything sold separately.
It’s a very good scope in excellent condition. It’s just a little too large for my current situation (I have a 90mm APO en route!).
Actually, since I need a mount for the APO, I might consider a partial trade for something like a CG-5 or a Polaris.
Additional pix are available on request.
