Sold: Celestron Nexstar SLT Mount

I am the original owner and have used this mount with small refractors and DLSRs.

The mount is rated to 12 pounds so don’t expect to put an 8″ SCT on it but 5″ SCTs and Maks weigh about 9 pounds or less as did the 80mm f/6 refractor I used successfully with this mount. I also used a 40mm PST H-alpha scope with it. It runs on 8 AA batteries or an adapter. Will also include the hard case that I keep the mount in.

I am asking $100 for the mount, if I do not have to ship it. If interested, email me at JamesDixonLR at Thanks for looking.

Celestron AVX Mount for Sale

For Sale – Celestron AVX Mount


Hi there! My name is Chad Binns. I’m a CAAS alumnus who will be moving out of state later this year and would like to sell my Celestron AVX equatorial mount and accessories. I purchased this mount ~5 years ago and have only logged about 20 hours of use on it. This sale includes:

  • Celestron AVX Mount
  • NexStar+ GoTo hand control
  • Tripod and eyepiece/barlow holder
  • Polar alignment scope (not yet installed, but installs inside the mount)
  • Celestron PowerTank 
  • Relevant cables (including some that I believe are for either a guidescope or PC hookup? I’m not really sure. I only use about half of the cables that came with the mount and PowerTank.)
  • Relevant documentation
  • Case (a cooler) and foam insert from shipment

New, these items (excluding the PowerTank) would cost a combined ~$750-800 (from BHPhoto and/or Celestron). I’d like to sell the combined package for $350 (including the PowerTank for free since I’m not sure how long it will hold a charge being 5y old). I’ve tested the mount with the PowerTank and everything seems to be working properly; the PowerTank holds a charge and the mount can slew with both motors using the hand control. Cheers and clears!

Celestron 9.25 XLT OTA

I’m putting my trusty C9.25 OTA up for sale to fund an upgrade to a C11. It is an excellent instrument and has served well. Included are the scope itself, of course, lens cap, two Losmandy style (D) dovetail bars, an AstroZap flexible dew shield, a dew heater strap, 6×30 finder, and a Bahtinov mask. See the pictures. The scope is currently wrapped in Reflectix reflective insulation to reduce tube currents. I’m asking $800 if I can sell it locally, $900 if I have to ship it. Paypal accepted, add 3%  please. Contact
