This is a late 1997 Celestron 1.25-inch 26mm Halloween plossl. It has fully coated optics and will come with both its original protective caps.

The caps are in excellent condition and have no splits or cracks in them. Cosmetics on the eyepiece are very excellent on the chrome barrel with a lovely, super clean reflection, the black body is in excellent condition with only one tiny abrasion mark that won't show up in the photos, the painted characters are perfect except for the "E" and "D" in "COATED", and the optics are in great+ condition with minor coating wear on one outer quarter of the far perimeter of the top element and some internal dust film. The internal dust can be removed if done carefully. But the ocular will perform just fine if left alone as is.

A little fun history: The Celestron Halloween plossls (we call them that for their orange-painted characters) was made by the same plant in Taiwan that also made Orion's Sirius plossls with the red-ring and painted white-star logo AND the one that made Pro Optics made, which had the same red-colored rubber o-ring as the Orion variant, but did not have the Sirius star logo.
The 26mm Halloween was inclusive on the Special Coatings gloss C90, the C90 Rubberized, Firstscope C80, GP-C102 (last years), and all the Celestar models from the C8 to the C14 from 1995-1998.
A wonderful, sharp to the edge 50-degree fov 4-element plossl that will give very satisfying views of M31, M42, M8, M17, the Double Cluster, and definitely the Moon for starters.

Price doesn't include shipping. Will ship to anyone on the planet.
