For Sale: 8″ Celestron SCT with Extras — SOLD

SOLD, the OTA at least. Finder, dew shield, and solar filter are still available.

Looking to upgrade your 5 or 6 inch SCT to an 8?  For Sale one 8″ Celestron SCT. Not sure of age but probably manufactured between 2000 & 2005. Optics have Starbright Coatings and the scope is Fastar capabable. I have used this scope with a borrowed Faster adapter and imaged successfully at f/2. The scope is used and has the nicks that come with use but the scope still performs well and I am selling only because I got the fever and replaced it with a C9.25 recently. I’ve tried to include some of the nicks in the pictures so you’ll see what you are getting. The scope retains collimation well and has collimation knobs. The pictures include two shots of Jupiter that I recently took with this scope to show what it is capable of.
Included are: The scope itself with a visual back, collimation knobs, front and back dust caps,  a CG-5 dovetail bar, a 50mm 7x finder and bracket, a white light glass solar filter, and a hard plastic dew shield.
Asking $450 plus shipping if needed. I will want to pay extra to the carrier to package everything so that they will guarantee safe delivery.
