Vintage 1977 Celestron C5 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope in classic orange. Includes telescope on mount as pictured as well as the power cord. I don't have a visual back yet to test it, unfortunately the telescope didn't have one when I picked it up but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work although you will need to get a visual back to start using it yourself. NO VISUAL BACK IS INCLUDED. Primary mirror and collector look great although I do see some tiny spots on the primary (please see closeup) but only on a small section which shouldn't affect visual quality. Please bid according. Also includes the power cable as pictured. When plugged into a power outlet, there's a faint noise that sounds a like a clock ticking so appears to be tracking. Movement is so little that I can't really tell just by looking at it but it is making a very faint ticking noise so that should be working. No eyepieces are included. Just the telescope, power cable, lens cap and telescope mount. Please see pics for actual condition and to see what's included. Please see pics to examine orange body carefully. There are a few light scratches on the orange body. Mount has a few nicks but nothing major. Please ask all questions before buying, happy bidding and goodluck!
