8″ Celestron Evolution OTA, Accessories, and CG4 Mount

Several years ago I finally got an 8″ SCT.  I found out I liked my 10″ non goto dob a lot better.  OTA is in almost new condition.  A few minor scratches on the dovetail.   I never used the Dew Shield or the Camera Mount.  The Solar Filter and Focal reducer are in good condition.  

I sold the goto mount and bought a CG4 Celestron mount.  It works fine with the SCT and has a 20# weight limit.   I won’t be needing it any more.

So if anyone is interested in either or both let me know.  If not I’ll list it on cloudy nights without the homemade roller case.
