Looking to sell my Celestron NexStar 8i. It is US made silver OTA.
For sale:
NexStar OTA
NexStar Mount
Nexstar tripod (Brand new, opened it for pics)
8x50 finder with bracket
AC adapter ( brand new in box)
JMI hard case with wheels
The correct tripod is included in the sale as well as a 8x50 finder scope and bracket.
OTA and mount is in very good shape, there are some black marks on OTA from the glue from old telrad mount, never bothered me. No dents on the OTA. It was sent to celestron for cleaning and collimation in october 2015 and images are very very sharp (better than my LX200 meade). Corrector is clean as is primary mirror. It does have a bit of focus shift like a lot of them do, but not bad. I took it out the other night and it tracks very nice, goto to is good, but could probably be better with some backlash adjustment if you care (or maybe i'm to lazy to get it aligned properly )
JMI case is in good shape, there is a crack in one corner, but it is 100% functional. Comes with 2 original keys, wheels are in great shape and the foam inside is in great shape as well. Could be used on other NexStar 8 scopes with minor modification to the foam. I'm also including a Celestron dew shield with this package.
NO Eyepieces, No diagonal are included.
Price is:
$650 for OTA with mount, finder scope, ac adapter and tripod+ shipping ($80-100) depending where you are) + 3% if paid via paypal.
$199 for JMI case + shipping ($50-80)
buy both and save a lot OTA package + JMI case $650 plus shipping to continental US via Insured FEDEX ground is about $75-$120 , I will accept paypal at no charge.
Can include diagonal and 26mm Meade super plossol eyepiece for $50 extra.
if you have any questions please ask (like shipping quote). i can take more pictures as well.
I'm located in New York and can meet if buyer is local. This is US only sale as international shipping would be cost prohibitive. It is possible to sent it to AK/HI/PR via priority mail for a good price, but no insurance (however JMI case is very good at protecting the scope:) Contact me for more info. I have plenty of pictures but cant download them for some reason. I will send to anyone that asks.
