Celestron Super C8 Plus with Pelican Case

8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

8x50 polar alignment finder scope
Byers worm gear R.A. drive with Tuthill power module
Telerad illuminated reflex sight
26mm Celestron Plossl eyepiece
7mm Celestron Ortho eyepiece
1 1/4" mirror star diagonal
Original wedge and tripod
Original manual

The optics are very good in this
scope. I have owned it for many years
and have used it to observe all of the
Messier objects and more.

The finish of the scope is still very
good. The wedge and tripod have some
cosmetic scratches to the paint.

The telescope has two modifications. In
1991 I added a power module made by Tuthill to
allow this scope to run off of a rechargeable
battery which is enclosed in the original
base. This makes the scope much nicer
for remote/field use. I replaced the
battery to the Tuthill unit two years
ago. The second modification was my
own hack to allow the illuminated grid of
the polar alignment finder scope to be
powered by two AA batteries instead of
the specialty batteries that it used

Also include is a very nice Celestron
branded pelican case.

I am asking $600 for everthing. If you
don't need the pelican case make me an
offer. I would prefer to sale locally
around central Texas and I will drive
up to 100 miles to meet you halfway
otherwise you pay shipping and insurance.
