Just bought a nice C11 , had to drive a bit (3 hrs one way) in the rain no less ....but for what I paid a great price...

Included was all the books, moon map..finder , a 9 and 26 plossel, dew shield , dew heater strip with controller, controller, sun block, insulated blanket, and a camera mount, also a box if misc...filters ...

This monster parked next to the C8 is Intimidating...a  holy crap moment when you see it the first time .

Best of all, I scored CHEAP.....if I told you ...well, let's say cheaper then most USED C8 OTA!!!!IMG_20191020_161010.jpg IMG_20191020_162233.jpg

Now I'm thinking of selling my 10 in Meade and C8 ...

Barely used , the c90 I took off the c8 .. just took it out for an hour .. two things .. its HEAVY and it's got perfect optics ..

Among the goodies in the box I found a new telrad, and telrad mount , and a camera adapter..

Jackpot ...
