Vintage C90 with extra coatings, 0.965 to 1.25 adapter, 1.25" diagonal and dew shield

 This vintage Celestron C90 looks and performs like-new. Corrector plate and primary mirror are clean and clear. The helical focuser is smooth and holds focus. It comes with an original dew shield that enhances resolution and images and shields from extraneous light sources. These dew shields are hard to find now. I added the dew shield as well as the new 0.965 to 1.25 inch adapter and a 1.25 inch Meade diagonal. It comes with an original objective cap that fits over the corrector plate. The C90 can be mounted directly to a photo tripod or to a Vixen-style dove tail mounting plate. I have used it both ways. It is the ultimate 90mm grab-and-go scope.

 I hate to see this gem go, but I am 81 and have to trim my scopes. With the Celestron Extra Coatings on the primary mirror this C90 gives clear, sharp images of the moon, planets and DSOs like M42. I have used it with EPs from 32mm down to 4mm with great results. With a 14mm the trapezium in M42 is clear with all stars bright and sharp.
