Hello, and welcome!Today, I have a very special listing to present to you today: a large astronomy telescope lot, featuring the highly praised Celestron NexStar 8SE! From the official website itself, here's what is said about this telescope:

From here on out, there is some details regarding history, condition, and shipping. Please read carefully before purchasing, and thank you for your time!
HistoryThe items in this listing were all originally bought new online by a single adult owner, and has been well taken care of for close up to 2 years now. The telescope itself has only been used a few times, and is in excellent condition. It has never been transferred to any other owner, and has remained at the same location since.
ConditionThe items you see in the photos and listed in the description range from being like-new to brand new condition. Some of the "brand new" items would include the cleaning kits, the original eye pieces, and solar filters, and the "like-new" items would include the telescope itself, the upgraded eye pieces, the finders, and the cameras. While some of the original boxes might not be included with some of the items, everything comes complete with all of the original pieces they came with. Unfortunately, I am limited to what extra photos I can provide for the telescope and its contents, but I will do my best to answer any questions or concerns to any serious buyers.
The telescope itself has some braces/slots attached to it to allow the user to use the upgraded equipment that was purchased with the telescope (some of which were safely removed and packed with the telescope). Everything was examined carefully and cleaned, with a guarantee that everything is to work as if it were brand new. Keep in mind that 8 AA batteries are required to power on the telescope, but with the Celestron Power Tank, you can instead use that to power up your telescope on the go! This product does come from a home with two cats, so if any cat hair/dust ended up clinging to any of the pieces/bubble wrap, I apologize in advance. The lenses and finders themselves were well taken care of, with no discernible flaws on them. Nothing is cracked, blemished, stickered, or marked on the products themselves. Wear and tear may include some very light fading of color from age, although I myself didn't find anything noticeable when examining them.
ShippingBecause there is a lot here, the items in this listing would be shipped in two separate boxes, each with their own tracking number. The boxes are labeled so that you know which box contains which items. The shipping cost you see there is a flat rate that will help cover some of the shipping, and we'll take care of the rest. FedEx will be the preferred shipping company for this product, but if any serious buyers wish to change vendors, please contact me first before purchase. Please allow up to 2 business days to ship, but in all likely-hood, it will ship within 24 hours. Everything is packed in a professional manner, and of course, shipping insurance will be included. Newspaper has been used to package some of the boxes.The option to pick up locally is available to save on shipping (a large truck or van is required to transport the boxes, as they are large and bulky).
I want to take a moment to make this perfectly clear, and will phrase this in bold letters: THESE ITEMS ARE SHIPPED AS IS, AND NO RETURNS ARE ACCEPTED. Due to the large quantity of items and the collaborative work with others, I will not be able to accept returns of any kind, and the items you see in the photos are how the items will look and what is included. That being said, I'm a faithful eBay seller and have worked hard to satisfy all my customers, and guarantee that the products purchased in this listing are to work as they were intended. Of course, the buyer may always contact me with questions and concerns related to this listing, and I will do my best to deliver a top quality customer experience. But unlike my other listings, I won't be able to offer returns for this particular listing. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
No international shipping, sorry; if purchased anywhere else outside of the United States, the order will be cancelled. Payment to be made only via Paypal, please (unless if it's local pick-up, cash only, please). If the item doesn't receive payment within 3 days after checkout, the buyer is subject to an unpaid item case.
That should be everything! Updates may be included in this listing, so please check back if you're interested. And as always, I hope you have a fantastic day!
