Considering selling because I will be moving and starting grad school soon. Will have no room or time, and need to buy computer.
I have a Celestron CG-11--beefy Losmandy german eq mount with 11" Celestron Schmidt OTA and adjustable legs, polar alignment scope, brand new hand controller, dovetail locking block improved by Losmandy, illuminated reticle finder with quick release dove mount, Meade 9mm illuminated reticle eyepiece,Rock solid Losmandy 5" guide scope mount with dual custom piggyback camera mount option, ST-4 ccd autoguider, Lumicon giant astro-guider/focal reducer for unvigneted images and rich field viewing with fitted deep sky filter and adapter for OM or Pentax K, 2" 50mm Rini Plossl for photographic framing and wide field viewing, plus dew heater, 26 and 16 plossls, 2 extra 10lb counterweights, and a 30-some amp hour gell cell battery. Collected over 5 years, over $6500 new, will consider selling for $4800 used.
Optional guidescope to fit in mount is complete Meade 2040 4" SCT with clock drive, tabletop tripod, red dot finder(can be put on 11" ota too), rugged plastic case,and solar filter--800 new, $400 used; Optional promaster pk2000 works like pentax k1000 with brighter focusing screen--150 new, $80 used.
This is LOTS of quality stuff. It may be possible to ship, but difficult and heavy (would take me a while). Would prefer to sell as one piece and meet half-way in the Pacific Northwest, would be willing to explain how to use and set up, and can supply some astrophotos for inspiration. This scope is ready for anything. Can be set up by small person (like me). Cases definately look used, and some "added functions" are duck taped, but I can remove for pristine new look if you prefer (with loss of customized function). Everything inside cases in great condition. I am open to other ideas, preferred email at email@example.com
