I have two C-14 telescopes for sale - each with wheeled hard-shell JMI cases.  Each comes with the original 2-inch 90-degree eyepiece diagonal.  I have a couple finder scopes and will include one with each - one is an explore scientific 8x50 straight through correct-image, the other is a StellarView 90-degree correct-image 50mm (7x?).  Also, if interested, I have a set of the Ironwood Observatory C14 flopper stoppers - I'll include with the sale of one of the 'scopes, the other does not have the correct thread on the mirror lock screws.  To be honest I never found the flopper-stoppers to be useful but I'll include them if you think they would be helpful (and if I can find them!).  Both telescopes are Fastar-compatable.  One has "Starbright" coatings, the other "XLT" coatings.  These telescopes were the main instruments at the Beverly Hills Observatory (Beverly Hills, MD)  for about 10 years, one used for photometry and the other for spectroscopy.  I replaced both in 2015 and 2016 with Meade 16-inch 'scopes.

Both are in what I'd call good used condition.  I almost never looked through either so cannot attest as to their optical quality but never had any reason to doubt they were at least typical of the C14 breed.  I will, however, guarantee that if you find them unworthy I will cheerfully refund your money within 30 days of purchase; for those of you in Michigan I'll extend to 60 days (I know all about brutally cloudy weather in MI having lived there for 30 years!)  But here's the kicker:  I will not ship the telescopes, period.  You'll have to come pick them up (though I'll drive a reasonable distance to meet you).  

Thanks for looking!
