8" SCT For Sale plus extras: SOLD was created by Keith g

Hi all, I have an Celestron C8 8 inch aperture SCT for sale. The optics are in very good order, the primary mirror is perfect. It's also motorised in right ascension. It comes with the following:

9x50mm finderscope
90 degree diagonal accepting 1.25 inch eyepieces

I'm also adding in the following extras:
Piggyback mount for astrophotgraphy
Celestron 40mm plossl eyepiece
Celestron 20mm plossl eyepiece
Celestron 12.5mm plossl eyepiece
Celestron 8mm plossl eyepiece
Celestron Barlow lens 2x
8 INCH DEWSHIELD

It also comes with a fitting of 'Bobs Knobs' to help with alignment of both the primary and secondary mirrors.

Very reasonable asking price of €300

Thanks. You're out in Cavan right, I've to drive up from Dublin. Could you tell me how old the scope is and if everything is in working order please? Optics are fine, no damage? I have a vixen porta II mount, do you know if it would fit on that?

thanks!
KC

Hi KC, thanks for getting back to me. I bought this in 2004, but no reflection on the quality of the optics, the primary and secondary mirrors are perfect. All eyepieces are in very good condition, I also have 2 vixen type plates that could fit, a Celestron one is 14” the farpoint one is 7” long.

I’ll post pics of them

Hi KC, here are both plate options:

The Celestron one is 14" long, the farpoint is 7" long, both have the dovetail fitting.
