I have for sale my glossy black tube C8 XLT in excellent condition. The scope is in 100 new condition both optically and cosmetically with the exception of a few nicks on the orange Vixen dovetail mounting bracket.

The focusing is smooth with no apparent signs of image shift during focusing. The telescope collimation is 100 percent dead on. I bought this from a person who had financial issues shortly after he purchased it so I became the second owner.

The paint and castings front and rear are flawless with no nicks, rub marks or dents. The telescope just looks and feels in every way like it is new, and performs this way also.

This scope is about 2 years old and it has had very little use since I have many other scopes also.

I’m selling this because like many, I have upgraded to a beautiful Edge HD C8.

I will include a 1.25” brass compression ring visual back from Blue Fireball in addition to a Celestron C8 flexible dew shield which also fits a C6, having an extra strip of Velcro for the smaller OTA. The dew shield has a cut out for the vixen dovetail. Also includes front and back end caps.

I’m selling it at a very reasonable price of $400 for pick up and $450 shipped and insured to your location CONUS via UPS or Fed Ex, your choice. This will ship in is original Celestron shipping box. The scope will ship with the focuser turned clockwise completely, to seat the primary agasint the rear lens cell, to minimize any issues with the primary during shipping.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will accept PayPal as payment, or cash or PayPal if picking up.

Thanks for your time in reading this ad.
