I have a Celestron C8 circa 2001, with Starbright coatings, Fastar capable. It has provided me with wonderful views of the cosmos, but alas, I have moved up in aperture, so this great scope is seeing no use. Shameful, I know. Anyhow, I have nearly $2000 into this scope and all of its accessories, but today, I will be offering the entire setup for $825. This includes:
*C8 OTA – Black with Starbright Coatings and dovetail mount plate. There is an area on the rear cell near the visual back where the paint has flaked off and I have touched it up. It doesn’t affect visual performance, of course.
*Celestron CG-5 Mount, Tripod, Accessory Tray and Counterweight- The mount has been reconditioned per the AstronomyBoy specifications. Performs much better than it did from the factory. There is a small dent in the declination circle.
*Celestron Dual Drive motors and hand control
*CST Heavy Duty Surveyors Tripod. Wood & Fiberglass legs.
*Pelican Weatherproof Hard Case with custom Foam-in-place for OTA – This custom packaging keeps the OTA tight in this heavy duty case
*Meade 2” Threaded Mirror Diagonal and 1.25” Adapter
*Bob’s Knobs – Makes collimating the primary a snap
*Flexible slow motion control knobs
*Orion Flexible Dew Shield
*Celestron 9x50 Straight Thru finder and Bracket
*Celestron Polar Finder
*LPR Filter – Threads onto Rear Cell.
*1.25” Visual Back
*Celestron 25mm Plossl – Stardust EP bottle included
*Celestron Ultima 17mm Plossl – Stardust EP bottle included
*Celestron Ultima 2x Barlow
*Celestron Piggyback Camera Mount
