Celestron G-8 8" SCT for sale. This is basically Celestron's standard 8" OTA mounted on a C-5 German Equatorial Mount, although the coatings and optics are superior to older Celestron 8" SCTs.
Comes standard with scope, GEM, aluminum accessory tray, finder scope and 26mm 1.25" Celestron eyepiece. Added-value accessories include two battery-powered drive motors with controllers (non-computerized) and a through-the-mount Polaris finder.
Everything is in excellent condition. Asking $800. I would also consider offers from NE-area telescope retailers to trade this in toward the purchase of a Meade LX-90.
Note: I would strongly prefer to sell this in the Boston/MA area, as shipping presents a problem. Am willing to drive up to 50 miles from Boston to show/demonstrate sell to serious purchaser.
