Orange-tube C5 (S/N #724, from about 1981, no coatings) with instruction book (such as it is). Comes with HD tripod (same as the C8 in those days), wedge, 2 C/Ws (very scarce), 6x30 finder, Bob's Knobs, Tuthill's knobs (the RJ's Bolts of the era) - toolless knobs for mounting the wedge and the OTA, and Bob's knobs. .965" and 1.25" visual backs and diagonals, 2X Barlow. No coatings. RA drive is 120V; dec is manual.

Condition is good-to-excellent. A couple of small paint chips on the tube, corrector exterior is very clean, interior has a small ring of haze around the secondary (about 1/4"), and a couple of small (3/16") spots.

Will need recollimation, as it hasn't been out since I installed Bob's Knobs.

Tuthill's Polaris scope available - add $125.
