I have an excellent condition Celestron Nexstar5 about 2 1/2 years old. Nice optics and holds collimation well. Only reason I'm selling is that I'm upgrading to a Nexstar 5i. Tubering for piggyback photography shown in photo is not included. Moon and Jupiter photo's where taken with and Olympus 3040 digital camera held over and eyepiece. My asking price is $570 shipped CONUS only. PayPal prefered (split fees), but Money Orders gladly accepted. Email responses will be a bit spotty today and tomorrow, but I will respond to them in the order recieved. Thanks Dom

Simple and easy to use, the NexStar is up and running after locating 2 alignment stars. Comprehensive database of over 18,000 objects. Even if you can't find the location of two bright alignment stars, NexStar will find them for you. Just enter the date, time and your location, and the NexStar will align itself to the necessary stars. With a touch of a button you can select the object catalog, change the slew speed, view information about an object.
