Celestron C8 sct ota . schmidt cassegrain 1990s

1990s Celestron C8 SCT.

Updated: now includes Celestron off axis radial guider worth 99

Optics - all very good condition.
Primary and Secondary mirrors very clean
Corrector plate very clean.
The tube is in good condition mechanically.
focuser - very good condition.
Cosmetically the Ota has some bad scratches which are shown in the photos and 4 drill holes where two sets of rings were previously installed.
The previous owner had installed a different larger finder which had no focus capability so I re-installed the original Celestron 6 x 30 finder.
This has left a few scratches as the screws were very tight and 4 holes.

This doesnt make any difference to the views but I have factored the cosmetic condition of the Ota into the price Im asking, which is ono

Main reason for selling is Im moving soon and need to down size to something smaller.


included in the sale:

Celestron c8 Ota - 8 aperture, 2000 focal length.
Celestron visual back
Celestron Star diagonal. 1.25
6 x 30 finder scope
Celestron dew shield
Meade 3000 series plossl 5mm
Celestron 40mm eyepiece
Old eyepiece 60mm
2 x Barlow lens.
Meade tele extender - great for taking pictures of the planets.
Meade T adaptor 62 - camera adaptor
Cross hair eyepiece - for drift aligning .
Celestron off axis radial guider worth 99
Olympus camera adaptor.
Canon camera adaptor.
Skywatcher dovetail plate.
Small dovetail plate.
Telescope foam lined case
set of Allen keys for collimation etc.

Large aperture and excellent views especially of the planets and the moon with the 2000 focal length.
The telescope comes complete with all the above accessories.

* please note - the orientation of the dovetail bar in the pictures - This is the classic 1990's vixen/Celestron way... on some saddle plates this might need to be adapted to face the opposite way - an easy fix is to just attach another dovetail (double it) or use 8'' rings.



The weight of the Ota is just under 5kg so quite light.

Please email if youre interested, anyone is welcome to come and try out the telescope before buying.
feel free to bring mount and tripod over.

Many thanks
Price: 320
