This Celestron Comet Catcher is a great grab-n-go scope for rich field/DSO observing. It's a 5.5" reflector that, together with the mount and tripod below, weighs about 10lbs. I am listing the OTA and tripod for purchase separately or as a package with the mount:
  • $275 for the Comet Catcher OTA (excellent condition)
  • $275 for the Berlebach Report 212 tripod (like-new condition)
  • $550 for the package, which includes the VariZoom video head (like-new condition, the same thing as this model sold by Oberwerk for $120)
If you'd like more information about these scopes:This Comet Catcher is a fine specimen. The optical elements are clean and collimated, the mechanics are in good shape, and the cosmetics are great for a scope of this age.
The Berlebach/VariZoom combination works beautifully with the Comet Catcher. The scope is equipped with an aftermarket helical focuser that makes focusing smooth and precise. It also includes the original eyepiece holder, a t-adapter for cameras, and a homemade dew shield.

All of these items are for pickup in/near Vermont. I understand that selling locally may take time, and I am not in a rush. So if this listing is not marked as "sold," please assume that the scope is still available.

I will also consider trade offers for scopes, binoculars, and eyepieces.

With warm wishes,


  • Condition Excellent
  • Location Vermont
