Well, the local-sale-only thing didn't work out, so I'm lowering the price to $800 to include shipping to CONUS locations. I have all the original boxes. Anyone in the Chicago area can take $50 off for pick-up or meet. Beyond that, price is firm; if it doesn't sell I'll keep it.
2-month-old NexStar 5i with goto controller upgrade & tripod, red-dot finder (needs a new battery), standard Celestron diagonal & 26mm ep. I've had it out about four times for strictly lunar observing and the optics seemed excellent. Selling to finance an h-alpha setup.
Money orders/cashiers checks.
