Hi folks, 

Selling my Celestron EdgeHD 8 inch SCT. Originally, I purchased this instrument here from one of our members but late last year, I sent it to Celestron for cleaning and collimation. Cost me $400, including shipping. When it was returned, the glass looked like someone used a wetnap to clean it so I sent it back demanding it be done correctly. Well, Celestron opted to simply replace the entire OTA! I was amazed actually. So essentially, you'll be getting a new telescope with only about 10 nights worth of imaging under its belt.

Anyway, the scope comes with the original dust cover, the original visual back, the original finder scope and bracket, (never used) lastly, it comes with the Celestron dew ring installed as well a set of bob's knobs.

Asking $1300.

Optionally, I can include:
  • The Smart dew heater power controller (add $150)
  • Aluminum dew shield and cap. (add $25 cosmetically flawed)
  • ADM top dovetail rail (add $50)
  • EdgeHD 0.7 Reducer (add $175 cosmetically flawed)
Not everything in the picture is included but everything in the pic is for sale. If you're interested in the mount or any of the astrophotography gear, let me know and we can talk about discounted prices. More pics upon request.
