This Celestron C8 Deluxe is in excellent condition and has the Starbright (non-XLT) coatings. Images are very sharp, and the scope hold collimation very well. The digital Setting Circle system is the same as the Advanced Astro Master, although I received this one from Tangent with the Discovery name brand on it. It is version 3.66 and has the computer interface port, and I've installed the 8192 tic encoders. I also aligned the mechanical axis by squaring up the forks, and with the DSC system, pointing is very accurate. With careful alignment, The object usually appears in a medium-power EP, and generally only need to update the alignment every few hours. The encoders are mounted such that they do not need to be removed when transporting the scope, and the cables are routed and mounted to an RJ-45 jack, so it's very easy to connect/disconnect the DSC computer.

There are several aditional items I'm including in the saleas well as the standard C8 Deluxe features:

Tangent-style Digital setting circles - 8192 Encoders

I am currently only looking for a local sale (The Los Angeles area), and am willing to drive within 150 miles for delivery. I will also be glad to demonstrate this system to a local buyer, although there's not much to see under Los Angeles light pollution. This has been an excellent, easy scope to use, and I am selling it because I moved up in size to an 11". Thanks for looking, and contact me with any questions.
