Like the ad says, I'll entertain offers. I got this scope off astromart a couple months ago and decided it was not for me. I can't justify the hundreds I spent on it, especially when a small instrument doesn't do me much good under light polluted skies and I rarely have the time to drive to darker skies. Compared to my PST, which was cheaper and used more, I simply can't justify keeping the nexstar.

Nexstar 5i
Steel tube tripod
GOTO controller
Original hand paddle
Lumicon 2" visual back
Standard 1.25 Celestron diagonal
Kendrick full apeture solar filter
Bob's knobs
Kendrick 3 hole focusing mask
Standard Celestron star pointer
20mm Celestron eyepiece
Celestron dew shield
Oringial boxes
...and for fun I'll throw in a Meade SP 26mm

Note 1: Good goto capabilities, except it devours batteries. I don't know about other Nexstars, but this one seems to go bonkers when it gets low on batteries. The slew seems to go full throttle (seemingly indicating batteries have sufficent power left), but the computer starts saying Mizar (i.e.) is below the horizon. Fresh batteries got the GOTO computer's head cleared up in no time though.

Note 2: I'll pay half of the shipping and handling costs (in CONUS). Even though I do have the original boxes, I know they really shouldn't be used multiple times for shipping. A little extra for double boxing and packing materials for secure shipment to be expected.
