Ok, here is an ad you do not see very often. My CGE1400 is 4 months old and is an awesome scope. It is my main observatory scope. The Goto is precise and I also have the hcanywhere software which allows me wireless control and voice command. This software is extremely easy to use.
So, why the ad? I bought this scope as I intended to do astrophotography again after many years of visual. Two problems,the bug did not bite me as I thought and the 2500 acres across the field from me has been purchased by a developer who intends to build 5000 homes. I have just decided I want something with a bit of a quicker look than an Equatorial mount and at a lower cost.
This C-14 has the newest XLT coatings and sells for about $6100 plus shipping of $295. It has been observatory kept and includes a Celestron Dew Shield. I will sell outright for $5200 plus $295 shipping.
But, I would rather trade...hopefully with someone local. Looking for a fork mount scope. Old model C-14's, New Model 14" LX200's, Meade classic 12" LX200's, even the new model Celestron 11". If someone actually has a 22" 70's Celestron and would like to trade, please email me immeidately. Please make offer.
