A near new Celestron Nexstar 5i in excellent condition. Purchased late last summer; used only a few times for some digicam sessions. Scope is still covered by its original 2-year warranty. Wonderful scope, but I'm really a dob person.

Comes with Computerized Hand Control (#93962), the easy-to-use keypad for locating objects which provides automatic go-to and tracking. Works well. Finding objects is the most accurate out of the box of any DSC or Go-to system I've used (e.g., Autostar on an LX90, Tangent box DSCs, Sky Commander, etc.)

Also with the NexStar steel field tripod (#93497), which includes a built-in wedge/tilt plate. It's sturdy, easy to handle, & works well.

Plus the following EXTRAS:

Celestron focal reducer/corrector (#94175). Changes the scope into f/6.3 or ~800mm focal length for wonderful wide field views and faster photography.

Orion Flexishield. Dew shield for 5 inch scopes. New, unused.

Bob's Knobs. Not installed. New, still in sealed packet.

Bob's No-tools kit--installed. Replaces diagonal and star pointer screws with easy to turn thumb screws. (Also including original screws.)

A dovetail bracket for a finder. Easily add any of the finders that come with a stalk.

Standard items also included: original hand control unit, red dot star pointer, 25mm NexStar Plossl (multi-coated, unused, with end caps), 90 degree diagonal, front metal lens cover, two CDs (The Sky Version 5 Level One for Windows & NexStar Observer List), the original boxes, and the wonderful 73 page manual covering the scope, observing the sky, & astrophotography basics. Comes with the blank product registration card. (8 AA batteries included in local pickup.)

Price: Only $940. Pick up preferred (upstate NY). Although I'm trying to sell this to someone in the local region first, please let me know if you're interested. There's a real likelihood that a regional buyer won't materialize, so you'd be first on my list! I have the original boxes (& manual) for packing. You’d pay shipping & insurance from 13850. CONUS.

Feel free to respond with any questions.
