Hello

Here is what I am selling:
Celestron 11" Edge HD Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical Tube Assembly with Starbright XLT Coatings
9x50 Finderscope2 "
90 Degree Star Diagonal
1.25 " Eyepiece Reducer Adapter
heater strip for the corrector
A box of extras for the scope: mirror box, dessicant box (internal replaces the mirror), fan (placed in mirror hole prior hyperstar session) and Batinov mask for C11.

Optional:
Pelican 1660 (very highly recommanded): $300 (it is worth $500 new)
Currently installed (but I can remove it and put the stock focuser back): Starlight Instruments Feather Touch Micro Telescope Focuser for Celestron CPC-11 & Edge HD 1100 Telescopes, $150. Value new: $350.
Micro Touch motor and controller: $300 (it is worth $500 new)
Celestron OAG: $120 ($340 new)
I also have a Hyperstar and the x0.7 reducer for that scope if interested, see my other postings.

Pristine scope, always kept in the Pelicase with desiccant bead,  well collimated (corrector centered with the Hotech collimation system). I got an image published full page in Sky and Telescope with this scope + hyperstar (the M45 image attached). All the images below were taken with that scope and Hyperstar.
The corrector plate is spotless and has been cleaned with the Starizona method.

The diffraction spikes in the hyperstar images are due to the USB cable of the camera and the power cable (12v) placed in front of the aperture, perpendicular.

I would prefer to do business in person in Tx (I am in Houston).
Reason for selling: funding a new, bigger project.
