I have decided to sell my Televue TV-85 refractor and Celestron CG-5 mount. I am the original owner of both, which were purchased in November of 2002. Serial Number for TV 85 is #2165.

TV-85 is in excellent condition, perfect optically and cosmetically. Screw on lens cap has one small ding from an accidental drop in the dark. OTA is compression style; diagonal (included) is TV Everbright, compression ring with 1.25" adaptor. Comes with TV ring mount and TV mounting plate for the CG-5 mount (this plate has some scratches from normal use). Included in the sale of the OTA and diagonal is the TV soft case and manual signed by Al Nagler.

CG-5 mount is also in excellent condition. This is the newer version of the CG5 mount, with the 2" steel, retractable legs and better EQ head. Comes with 11# counterweight and also has a motor installed for the RA drive, but unfortunately the single axis controller has disappeared into a black hole. It should not be too hard to find a new one.

Also for sale is the Nagler 3-6mm zoom, with caps and original box. I would prefer to sell this as a package, and will give first priority to those who are interested in this setup. Price is $1925, which is a savings of over $900 if purchased new. It's a bargain. Reason for selling? . . . Bills, bills, bills.

I would like a reasonably local sale (within a few hundred miles or so) and will discount my asking price if this can be done. However I will ship all items at buyers expense, anywhere in the CONUS. Give me a few days before you send any emails asking to break up the package. I may do that if I do not move it.

I will accept Money orders (preferred), but will accept a check if you do not mind waiting for the check to fully clear before shipment.

Thanks for looking!
