Scope is Sold - Thank You.
This is the Celestar 8 without the wedgepod - but it includes a real wedge and a real Celestron tripod plus a few extras. The package includes:
1. Celestrar 8 (The Black Tube scope that runs on 9 volt battery) with
2. Field Tripod (height adjustable)with tray
3. Wedge (a real Celestron Wedge - not the the wedgepod)
4. Bob's Knobs (for easy and smooth collimation
5. Deluxe Latitude Adjustment
6. Hand Controller
7. Dec Motor
8. Orion 1 1/4 inch diagonal
9. Celestron 25mm SMA eyepiece
10. Rigel red dot finder (these are wonderful)
11. 6X30 Celestron LER Finder
12. The thumbscrews that Celestron should have made standard for easy attachment to wedge.
This Scope has excellent optics. Passes the star test and the ronchi test with flying colors. Good condition. The battery compartment hinge is broken, so door doesn't shut completely and a few light surface mark on tube (mostly covered by Rigel plate) - neither is a big deal. The scope looks very nice. Asking $745 plus shipping.
