Celestron C14 OTA Fastar compatible. Purchased in March 2003 as CGE 1400 am only selling the C14 OTA. Optics are excellent, the corrector plate has been cleaned by Hands On Optics because a spider got inside the OTA when I was drying it out last fall. I find the corrector plate still needs cleaning on both sides, streaks from cleaning are visible under high humidity conditions. Coatings on the corrector are fine, cleaning was done with acetone.
Also included are Kendrick 14” dew heater strip (no controller), Feathertouch 2” dual speed focuser with break, Celestron dew shield, Celestron 8x50mm finder, Celestron 2” diagonal, Celestron 40mm 2” E-Lux eyepiece.
Cost new for all the above parts is $5000.00 I am asking $3800, includes shipping.
Selling because southern Maryland sky’s are not good enough for this scope.
