Offering a 1986 Celestron C-8 telescope with heavy duty tripod, equatorial wedge, , 1 1/4 inch visual back, 8X50 finder with lighted crosshairs, external camera mount, lens covers, dew shade, and much more listed below. F10.
This telescope is just right for transport, not too big, not too small. With the stable fork mount it is a great camera platform for astrophotography. Full electronic controls with settings for sidereal, lunar, and solar rates. Also fully controllable hand held system for guiding during photography (edge of field camera guide adapter included for prime focus photography).
Operates on standard 120 Volts and on 12 Volt DC.
This is also a great educational tool since it is not computer guided. Comes with 2 sets of star maps, full declination and right ascension circles as well as a planisphere for the budding astronomer to actually learn how to find the way around the night sky without computer assistance.
Fully functional, in good plus to excellent shape, always handled carefully and always cushioned while traveling to observatory and field spots. All optics and full scope always covered when not in use. Was used for astrophotography and general viewing by amateur astronomer.
Comparable C-8 with fork mount, wedge and tripod goes for $2000 new.
