I am selling an excellent condition Celestron Nextstar 8SE OTA (optical tube assembly). I used this for around 6 months of Astrophotography and it has been great! It has primarily been hooked up to a camera and not much visual, but you can do visual astronomy if you would like. The glass and mirror have no scratches of problems. There is a little dust on the outside that I probably should have blew off before taking the photos (don't worry about that). But honestly, it is in excellent condition. It has never been dropped or hurt in any way.

I have a separate listing for a bunch of eye pieces, diagonal, and filters if you are interested. I also am selling a 6.3 Celestron focal reducer on another listing. If you are interested in those, please let me know.
  • It is the OTA only and not the mount. I upgraded my mount shortly after the purchase and sold it separately.
  • Includes an 8 inch solar filter for viewing the sun or a solar eclipse.
  • Includes an 8 inch Bahtinov Mask that collapses down to half the size.
  • Includes a red dot star finder that it originally ships with.
  • Includes an 8 inch cover to protect the glass.
  • Celestron 1.25 inch adapter.
  • Celestron T-Adapter-SC #93633
Some of the photos showed other connected items I used with it (ASI Air Pro, ZWO EAF, laser, and camera equipment). Only the items listed above come with the OTA.

Lastly, I've included two photos I took with this scope. One is the Tadpole Nebula and the other is the Triangulum Galaxy. Enjoy!

I prefer Venmo, but will use Paypal. I will not cover shipping fee's because this is big and heavy. But I am happy to send you a receipt for the exact amount it will take to insure and send after we make a deal and the initial payment is made. I am not out to rip anyone off and will ship it the cheapest/safest way we can.

Message me (Matt) if you are interested & specify what item (I am selling a few)
