This Celestron Firstscope has worked well for a number of years but it's not being used so time to sell. Overall very good condition with only a few tiny nicks in the paint. Smooth, steady metal 1.25" focuser and metal dew shield. R&P is smooth and rack is perfect all teeth. One of the plastic focus knobs has a fine crack but works well. The clean multi-coated Chinese optics are very good, just a touch less sharp than an older Japanese Vixen model of the same size and focal length. I've seen nice detail on Jupiter including four bands, the GRS, barges, festoons, and sharp moon transits on good nights. Saturn has shown the Cassini division, white and yellow A and B rings, orange banding, and olivine cap. Titan is easy and at times two other moons blink in and out. Double stars are beautiful as are many brighter DSO's like the Orion Nebula and the Pleiades. With a white light filter it makes a great solar scope.
OTA only with front cap. No rings or diagonal. CONUS only, please. Price includes shipping. PayPal is fine. Thanks for looking.
