9 1/4” Celestron SCT (Black tube) with Losmandy wide-plate dovetail mount. Includes both Rigel and Telrad unity power mounting plates (but not the Finder scopes themselves!). Original Celestron finder scope and visual back attached. A few minor scratches on mounting plate and tube ring are evident but scope received limited service and was handled carefully. Bob's Knobs installed previously. Two painted stripes on Losmandy plate served as balancing marks depending on which imaging camera I employed that night. Scope professionally collimated by Skies Unlimited a year ago. Handled with care. Star Bright XLT coating on optics.
My modest mount is overtaxed especially in terms of auto-guiding forcing me to move down the aperture scale to accommodate the weight realities of my mounting system. I prefer face-to-face transfer of hardware and money so that both seller and buyer leave happy. Will drive as far as Connecticut, southeast New York State, Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland as far south as Washington DC. Priced to sell at $250 to offset purchase of a smaller scope.

To a possible seller named NEAPTIDE - your response hyperlink does not appear to work. Tried contacting you but unlike other respondants, your link fails to connect me to the CN site - try to send me a new message otherwise I'll be going down my list to the next potential buyer. Thanks

Administrator - can you help here - Ive rebooted my account without being able to reach this possible buyer. Thanks

Thanks to all who replied - good luck with the SCT John!
