  9. Celestron 6se for sale

    I am unhappily selling my Celestron 6se with power pack and various numerous lenses etc. I have never got the proper use out of it and it is as new, apart from a small scratch on the side of the tube. It is fully flocked. I am looking for £500 for the lot. I live in South Lanarkshire so I would be able to meet at a reasonable distance if you pay the fuel costs. cheers
