8” f/10 Schmitt-Cassegrain Telescope with Super Polaris Mount
A classic scope-mount combination that served me well for many years. Still in excellent condition. Features very nice optics with rock solid collimation, original workhorse German equatorial mount manufactured by Vixen (well suited for astrophotography) and a nice wood tripod with accessory tray.
· Celestron 25mm and 10mm SMA 1-1/4” eyepieces

· 6x30 finder scope
· RA and Dec motors with 2-axis controller
