Offered is a vintage 8" SCT glass solar filter for.
This came with a used Celestron SCT setup I bought some years ago. It looks like solar filters that Celestron sold circa the 1980's, with a gold metal rim.
Looks to be white light; without a scope looking at the sun it appears white, maybe faintly yellow.
Condition looks very good, almost crisp newish, but you wouldn't mistake it for new.
The coatings look fine with no issues.
There is a faint haze on the outer surface. I test cleaned a small area and it cleaned off just fine. I will leave it the buyer to clean it the way you prefer. Inside surface looks very crisp and clean. It looks overall like it was little used.
The inner rim of the frame is lined with felt.

Pricing: being a vintage solar filter, and obviously a very good one, I don't know if that increases or lowers the value.
I'll guess a price at $75
Shipping $10 in the USA
I accept the usual forms of payments, check, MO, and Paypal.

Thanks for looking,


  • Condition Used
  • Location South Pasadena, CA 91030
