Celestron Edge HD 8” fork mounted SCT w/ heavy duty wedge.
3 years old and in very good shape. Optics are clean. Go to is very accurate and it tracks very well. It is also Hyperstar ready. It has an upgraded featherlight focuser. A red dot finderscope w/ a mounting bracket for a DSLR or small secondary scope. I have modified the standard finderscope to fit an Orion autoshoot guider or any other popular 2” guiding camera. The tripod has some small light scratches from normal use and I had to replace one of the bolts on the one of the support arms (in photos) but other than that it is in very good shape. This was my go-to imaging scope for the past three years but I have recently upgraded to an EQ mount and only use this now for planetary imaging.
For local pickup only in the Buffalo NY area. I will deliver up to a 60 mile radius but it is just too big and heavy to ship.
Brand New this scope retails for $2400.....The wedge $400 and the featherlight focuser around $300......so its about $3100 worth of scope for half that price. I would rather see it go to a good home as opposed to collecting dust for my occasional planetary imaging sessions.
