Celestron C5 (Starbright)

I've upgraded to a C6 so this excellent little telescope is now surplus to requirements.

It's the 'classic' black tube model from the 1990s, originally sold with an EQ mount as the G5 (see attached sample image - not the actual scope for sale).

Condition is excellent. It was serviced and cleaned 2-3 years ago before I acquired it and has been only lightly used since then. Optically it's very good and performs like the scope reviewed on Astromart in 2007 (https://astromart.com/reviews/telesc...ron-c5-classic).

Included in the sale are:
  • C5 OTA with short Vixen dovetail bar
  • Metal front cover
  • 1.25" visual back
  • 6x30 finderscope & bracket
  • Vixen/Synta style finder dovetail base (glued on at 45 to the Celestron finder position)
  • Home-made foam dew-shield (slides over the OTA and also insulates the tube)
* There is no mount, eyepiece or diagonal included.

Photos of actual scope to follow

Local pickup is preferred but I can ship if required.

Asking $400 ono.

Enquiries by PM.
