Pristine Celestron Celestar 8

The thinning of the herd continues...

My lovely Celestron Celestar 8. In pristine condition. Starbright coatings and corrector plate neat as a pin.

Tracks very well. Mount uses either a 9V battery or can run off 12V with a cord (cigarette cord not included, but I'll throw in a 9V battery).

Comes with the following:

* 6X30 finder (the finder does have a little of its paint damaged)
* 1.25" visual back
* 1.25" diagonal
* Wedgepod - tripod and wedge all in one
* Secondary mirror has Bob's Knobs
* Original instruction manual
* Bullseye spirit level
* Handset - as is, handset controls RA and the North and South selection. Dec motors are available from JMI - http://www.jimsmobile.com/buy_motodec.htm

Front lens cover locks in place, not the flimsy push on type.

Has original boxes, both for scope (double boxed) and wedgepod, so I can ship! Shipping not included in price. Or pick up from Maroubra in Sydney's east.

I can include a plossl eyepiece or two if needed.

Asking $900 - SOLD

Hi all,

I've had a couple of people ask if the handset was somehow damaged.

No, it is working fine. The dec function does not work as there is no dec motor on the scope. The link to the JMI site is to show where dec motors for this scope can be obtained from. The handset & the dec motor were always options with this scope. Today the handset is hard to find.

The optical quality is excellent. When conditions allowed I had no problem getting 400X with it.

Always happy to negotiate if you are interested.

Thanks for looking.

Alex.
