Someone near me is selling a 1970's vintage orange tube Celestron C8 for $350. All in working order, comes on a sand cast motorized / tracking mount, with a wedge, trunk, finder, tripod, diagonal, and one eyepiece.
Prices on eBay range from $300-500 for these things, but in varying states of completeness. I'm thinking this is a good price, but I'm not entirely sure! Any ideas?
If that's Ben Bartine's, it's not a sandcast, but still a great deal.
