I recently acquired a 25 years old Celestron C9.25, battered on the tube and mounting rail but apparently with optics in good shape.  In order to test it, I took a quick 4,000 thousand frames sequence of Jupiter with Sharpcap. I processed the best 1,400 frames with Autostakkert 3, Registax 6.2 and Picture Window Pro 7.2
All in all, I think I made a good deal.
