Sale Pending!

I am selling my 3.5-year old Orion Skyquest XT8 8" f/6 dob. It's in excellent mechanical and optical condition, shows hardly any signs of use. It has a 1.25" focuser which is very smooth. I am the original owner.

I have made these upgrades:
- Center-spot the primary mirror for easy collimation
- Fully flock the entire tube and focuser with Protostar flocking paper. This has made a tremendous improvement in contrast. I see the GRS on Jupiter on a regular basis, and Cassini division on Saturn is easy to trace all around the rings.
- Add magic sliders for smoother azimuth motion. These can be removed with no problem, the original nylon pads are still on.

The scope comes with a 6x30 finder, 25mm and 9mm Plossl eyepieces, all dust caps. I also have the original shipping boxes. I have taken great care with the scope, always stored inside the house.

I am looking for a buyer within driving distance of the Toronto area. Asking $300 Can / $225 US. Selling because I've upgraded to a larger scope. Contact me if you have any questions. Sorry about the pic quality, the small scope in the foreground is not included.
