Celestron C8 Fastar compatible OTA with some extras for sale. Purchased new in 2000 and hasn't been used for the past year and a half and it's time to let it go. This is the OTA only, with no mount, but does come with an unopened 6x30 finder with bracket, the standard 1 1/4 inch visual back, a Celestron 1 1/4 inch diagonal, 25mm SMA eyepiece, CG5 dovetail, Orion Flexishield flexible dew shield, Orion 12V Dewzapper, Bobs Nobs thumbscrew collimation screws and all appropriate lens caps and dust shields. There are a few cosmetic scratches on the OTA and the dovetail, but nothing major and nothing that would affect the operation of the scope. The optics themselves are pristine. I'm not an experienced star tester of scopes, but can say that on nights of good seeing this scope has provided excellent planetary images. On one night of near perfect seeing (rare here in central Indiana), the best night I've ever seen, the images of Jupiter the scope gave were stunning, with a wealth of fine and subtle detail so I’d say that optics aren’t going to be your limitation with this scope. I’ll let this scope go for the best offer over $500 plus $30 for shipping. Would prefer a money order rather than a personal check or paypal. Thanks for looking.
