Downsizing my collection. I purchased this in 2003 with the horrible CR150HD mount.This is a one owner telescope and the pride of my collection for the last 15 years. The crappy mount was replaced by an atlas EQ but the scope was perfect. This has provided me with some of the best razor sharp views of globular clusters I have ever had. This scope with a 5mm pentax XO is my favorite combination. Deep sky hunting with this was also a blast usually with a 35mm panoptic. Its seen less and less time over the years and at the Oregon Star party this year it stayed in its case the whole time and my evenings were spent with my 5" APO imaging. A few years ago with a Baader contrast booster and a 2.58mm Pentax XO it gave me the best views of Jupiter I have had so far.

The scope itself is a Celestron CR150HD with the adjustable objective cell making it identical to the C6-R. It also has a GSO focuser with a giant fine focus knob and a top dovetail bar for accessories. Lens has light dust from lots of use but the glass is immaculate. The tube is perfect with no dents and no major scratches. The terribly heavy metal dewshield was replaced by a astrozap flexible one. This also comes with an Orion refractor soft case which is where it usually lives in our temp controlled gear room with all my other scopes. The stock dewshield is not included as it was later hack sawed to hold a 140mm ERF which is for sale in another auction if you want to use this as an amazing HA telescope.

This has been my baby since I bought it and im hoping it finds a new home where it can be pushed beyond the dawes limit and awe others like its done for me so many times.

Only the OTA is for sale. This does not include the mount.
$400. Prefer local pickup but we can arrange shipping at buyers expense.
