THe scope (after an hour of testing has been paid for and taken by the new owner. I have given him 2weeks to decide if he really likes it so technically, it could be returned. Thanks.
I’m selling this awesome 1995 C11 w/starbrite coatings (not XLT). Its has beautiful optics and the mirror is fantastic. The focuser feels better than any other Celestron or Meade focuser I’ve ever used. There are a couple of small scuffs on the ota but not enough to worry about. The scope “see’s extremely well and star clusters and galaxies are sharp and spooky. I really can’t say enough about the views I’ve gotten from this scope at the Shingletown star party. This would be a great investment for anyone who is serious about deep-sky and has a mount that can support it. I’m a converted apo guy now and want the money for better mountings and other goodies. I just can’t stop buying stuff :-)
Included in this sale are:
The original 7X50 illuminated finderscope & bracket (rear foam support doughnut is missing)
Corrector plate cover
1 ¼ star diagonal
1 ¼ sct rear cell adapter (for the included 1 1//4 diagonal)
Televue 2” sct adapter (for your 2” accessories shown in picture)
The only issues would be that the original foam o-ring that once supported the rear part of the finder scope is missing and could be replaced by a 2x3/8 thick o-ring from the hardware store and the scuffs on the tube but if you have any experience with a big casgrain, you’ll agree that this one is great. The extra shipping cost you pay will not include the foam/box packaging that I will provide. I will buy a $30.00 roll of 2" foam and wrap this baby SO carefully. I want you to be very pleased with this purchase as I was. Want to discuss? Greg 510-522-3166 Clear skies!
