I have an absolutely mint condition Nexstar 5 ....works perfectly in every way. Complete with all normal factory accesories, nice 25mm Plossl e.p., red-dot finder, manuals, etc. (No tripod). This scope has excellent optics and the GOTO works perfectly! Has been used very, very little, and doesn't have even a cosmetic scratch on it. The truth is, I have eight (don't tell my wife!) scopes, and this little jewel needs to be out under the stars more. I can ship in all the original Celestron packaging. $700 gets you a "brand new" Nextstar 5! You can call me at 913-681-0992 for information too. I live in the Kansas City area, and am a long-time member of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City.
