FOR SALE: Celestron CPC 800 — SOLD!

SOLD in two days.

Follow this link for details.

I’m selling my Celestron CPC-800 telescope and accessories and hoping to make someone a good deal in order to sell it all as a “kit”. The telescope was purchased in January 2013. Most everything was purchased based on advice from some of the elders of CAAS combined with my own research and I have to say I think it’s a pretty decent setup… I just wasn’t ever able to get and keep my family interested in observing.
The telescope has only been set up 10-20 times, it has been stored in its padded case inside my house.
I’m located in Benton, AR and can probably meet you somewhere to complete the sale.
I have over $3000 in the setup and am asking $1500 for the whole shebang. If I can’t find a buyer for everything then, after a few weeks, I’ll consider listing the items individually. If you don’t think the asking price is fair, let’s talk about that.Bryan Signorelli

PS – On the off chance that you have one… we will be rolling this hobby money over and applying it towards the purchase of an Aire Super Puma raft in order to head east or west and enjoy the whitewater.
