I have been convinced by the hype that the C9.25 is the SCT for planets so I am willing to trade my Celestar 8 - this is in brand new condition and has razor sharp optics (really good star test). THis is a very portable and convenient scope that is so light it is my quick look scope. Will swap plus cash or other things for a C9.25 - I have bob's knobs, JMI motofocus and hand controller and finder which really work nicely for photography. Would prefer a fork mounted ultima type C9.25 as I want to use it for CCD imaging mars. Also have a ton of eyepieces I could throw in with the deal as well as alot of filters and other goodies. Let me know if your looking for more portability.
Thanks for looking, Brooks
