C14 OTA, ready to put your CCD camera on, great CCD workhorse, takes very nice images but can certainly be used visually. Purchased new in 2001. Good optics, you should not need to purchase anything else to be ready to capture great images and have a robust telescope:

+Optec TCF-S focuser, ready to hook up to your computer (will work with Focusmax focusing software.) This is the temperature compensating focuser.
+Ted Agos custom focal reducer (runs scope at f/7)
+Parallax rings attached to 24"x8"x3/4" aluminum plate which is in turn attached to a heavy duty Losmandy male dovetail plate. There is an aluminum bridging plate on the top of the main rings (opposite of the dovetail) and attached to this are two Parallax guide scope rings (they are big enough to get a 4" refractor in and there are numerous mounting holes for therings on the plate). All work was done at a machine shop and this is a very sturdy, robust mounting system. The dovetail will slide into a Paramount Me or dovetail plates by Astro-Physics for example.
+Software Bisque main mirror locking collar, installed (installed by Starizona in Tucson, AZ, virtually eliminates mirror flop).
+Stock Celestron focal reducer.
+William Optics Crayford focuser.
+Peterson Engineering Eye Opener 2" visual back
+Stock Celestron visual back
+Flexible dew shield
+stock Celestron 8X50 finder (will not work with rings in place)
+Stock Celestron dovetail
+Celestron diagonal, 2" mirror type
+Stock Celestron dovetail
+foot locker, original shipping box, documentation for accys and telescope

$4250, I'll pay 1/2 shipping (guessing about $150 total in the US, UPS Ground). If you are looking for a NEW C14, I'm sure you are aware that they are about $4200, just for a bare bones OTA. You could buy a lower priced OTA with nothing added or this one with everything added.

Images on reguest taken with this instrument. Has been a great CCD work horse as the results prove.
