Celestar 8 Deluxe, less than 1 year old. 'Scope gives excellent images, and is mechanically outstanding.
Fork mounted C8 OTA
Heavy Duty Adjustable Field Tripod
1.25" Visual Back
25mm Celestron Plossl
RA and DEC drives, and hand control box.
Periodic Error Correction
Cig. Lighter adapter.
Wedge has deluxe latitude adjuster added, which also provides tool free set up. Without this upgrade, 2 allen wrenches are required to set up the 'scope.
The mount included with the C8 Deluxe is bigger, stiffer, and more robust than the mount included with the normal C8, making it a wise choice over the standard C8. The Drive base provides superior tracking accuracy, 4 different tracking rates, 8X slew speed, .5X micro correction speed, Electronic Drive correctors on BOTH axies (also manual RA and DEC fine controls), and runs on 2 9V batteries, or 12V DC. Add PEC to the equation, and the 'scope comes ahead as an excellent astrophotography choice.
Fastar compatible. A Fastar search on the web will turn up several impressive reivews and images-- check it out!
Also included: Orion C8 Padded Soft Carry Case, a Celestron Piggyback Camera Mount, and an Orion SCT counterbalance.
