Celestron G-8 SCT telescope
6x30 finder/25mm SMA eyepiece/90ºstar diagonal/visual back/CG5mount

Polar axis finder

Astro Zap dew shield

8” Kendrick dew heater for corrector plate

Custom stiffening plate

Meade 9mm multicoated eyepiece

Foam lined case for OTA

I have spent many hours improving the CG-5 mount. The tripod legs were disassembled and fiberglass reinforced to hold sand, which makes the mount much sturdier. The equatorial head was carefully disassembled to polish and re-grease for smoother movement (as seen in the astronomyboy website). The stiffening plate (as seen in picture) is made of ¾” 12 ply birch plywood with a brass rod and a maple wing nut. The mount itself is now very solid, combined with wonderful optics and accessories this telescope is a great purchase. Excellent condition (14 months old). I am trying to collect enough funds for an upgrade to a 9.25 SCT OTA. Asking $750 + split shipping in CONUS
