For sale is a Celestron Celestar 8" SCT in good condition. SCT Tube shows typical wear for its age, slight scuff marks, but is overall in good condition. The optics are in very good condition (clean, very slight marks on corrector plate with flash light test, zero impact on its performance). Optically, this scope is an excellent performer, and is one of the best performing 8" SCT's I have looked through. The scope is NOT a go-to, but it does have tracking powered by a 9-volt battery. It was able to keep Jupiter in the eyepiece for over a half hour with tracking. The scope also has two slow motion control knobs, which are very useful in centering an object prior to tracking. The hard foam case is convenient for travel. Overall, this is a very fun to use scope for visual and outreach, and it performs very well.

Included with the scope are:

-Celestron 8" OTA with Starbright Coatings
-Finder Scope
-Telrad Base plate attached to OTA (no Telrad included)
-Celestron 2" 90 degree diagonal with 1.25" Adapter
-Celestron Heavy Duty Wedge Tripod
-Hard Foam Case
-Dust Caps for corrector plate and rear of SCT

I will not ship this. I am located in Dayton, Nevada, and may be willing to meet in Reno, Carson City, Lake Tahoe, or Fernley Nevada for pickup. I am asking a reduced price of $425. Feel free to message me if more pictures are desired. I may consider a trade towards a 12-16" dob, but for now I am looking to sell. Thank you
