This was originally a Celestron C5+, bought brand new in early 2000 from Woodland Hills. I didn’t like the fork mount – too difficult to get perfect polar alignment for deep sky photography. I sold the mount but kept the OTA because of its great optics. The scope has never been cleaned, so no scratches, but some dust. All its life its had a UV filter on the back to stop dust getting inside the tube.
For sale because I have too many telescopes and don't use this often enough.
