A near new Celestron Nexstar 5i in excellent condition. Purchased late last summer; used only a few times for some digicam sessions.
Scope is still covered by its original 2-year warranty.
Wonderful scope, but I'm really a dob person.
Comes with Computerized Hand Control (#93962), the easy-to-use keypad for locating objects which provides automatic go-to and tracking. Works well. Finding objects is the most accurate out of the box of any DSC or Go-to system I've used (e.g., Autostar on an LX90, Tangent box DSCs, Sky Commander, etc.)
Also with the NexStar steel field tripod (#93497), which includes a built-in wedge/tilt plate. It's sturdy, easy to handle, & works well.
Plus the following EXTRAS:
Celestron focal reducer/corrector (#94175). Changes the scope into f/6.3 or ~800mm focal length for wonderful wide field views and faster photography.
Orion Flexishield. Dew shield for 5 inch scopes. New, unused.
Bob's Knobs. Not installed. New, still in sealed packet.
Bob's No-tools kit--installed. Replaces diagonal and star pointer screws with easy to turn thumb screws. (Also including original screws.)
A dovetail bracket for a finder. Easily add one of the finders that come with a stalk.
Standard items also included: original hand control unit, red dot star pointer, 25mm NexStar Plossl (multi-coated, unused, with end caps), 90 degree diagonal, front metal lens cover, two CDs (The Sky Version 5 Level One for Windows & NexStar Observer List), the original boxes, and the wonderful 73 page manual covering the scope, observing the sky, & astrophotography basics. Comes with the blank product registration card. (8 AA batteries included in local pickup.)
Price: Only $920.
Local buyer preferred (pickup upstate NY). I'm trying to sell this to someone in the local region first (during the next few weeks). That will probably not work out, however, so even if you do live some distance away, please let me know if you're interested! I have the original boxes (& manual) for packing. You’d pay shipping & insurance from 13850. CONUS.
Feel free to respond with any questions.
