COMPLETED - Celestron C8 XLT + extras *SOLD*

Recommended Posts

Celestron C8 XLT + extras and SkyWatcher Star Travel 80 (ST80)

I have a Celestron C8 with XLT Starbrite coatings. Will include the full length base plate, both visual and imaging backs, scope rings, front 8" end cap and the finder scope with it. No box I'm afraid. Optics are good and clean, focal length is huge - 2300mm from memory. This lot would cost close to £1300 new and one with less spec went for £750 on fleabay recently. Might be interested in a part exchange or will let it go for £450 collection only.

Also, I have a SkyWatcher Star Traveler 80 - good optics, used as a guide scope - just the scope itself (does not include the barlow in the photo) - now including dovetail bar and scope rings looking at around £50 for it.

I have decided to save up for another refractor, WO, Equinox or even toward an Esprit. However, I would also consider p/ex for an Intel NUC and/or Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox.

Please excuse some of the colours - I used my astro modded 6D which was in the observatory so the "nice" purple is actually black !!

Both these are collection only.

Celestron C8 and extra's as listed above now reduced £50  .....  £500   (or might consider a trade for a decent refractor - Equinox or similar as I am going the imaging route rather than visual)

I forgot to mention on the "part exchange" front. I am also looking for an Intel NUC and a Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox - for remoting my observatory.

Now priced to sell ... he says hopefully   ;)

Take both scopes and all accessories for £500  or  the Celestron C8 + accs for  £450 collected from North Yorks.

May be interested in a p/ex for either of the items mentioned in the post above or a decent refractor for imaging  (SkyWatcher Equinox or similar) + cash adjustment

      Hi, 
      I bought a Celestron focal reducer / corrector lens part #94175 for my non Edge CPC1100. Celestron say - in bold type no less - that this reducer is not compatible with Edge HD optics. The cost of the dedicated reducer for the Edge optics ( #94242 ) is ~ $200 more than the non Edge version 
      Out of curiousity, and to make sure what Celestron say was correct, I tried the non Edge focal reducer part number #94175 on my 8" Edge telescope - and it works just fine. The field of view is expanded as it should be and the clarity to the edge of the view is as clear as when not using the reducer. IE vignetting is minimal / non existent
      Has anyone else found this to be true with their Edge and non Edge telescopes? This is significant; the price difference is about $200 between the two reducers and, in my case, the non Edge reducer gives me altitude clearance on the bottom of my Evolution mount whereas using a dedicated Edge reducer ( #94242) would not. 
      So if you're in a similar to me, try the non Edge reducer first before spending an extra $200.

      Hi to everyone, 
      I'm new in the world of the telescope and as my first telescope I bought an used Skywatcher 70/700 with supatrak mount and I hope that someone can help to understand the equipment I'll need to connect (cable, bluetooth or wi-fi add) my telescope mount to a Mac and control it by software like EQMac or Stellarium.
      Thanks

      Bought this mount for a cheap price and I found out that there is something missing...maybe a gear???
      I need your expertise on where to get parts for my  mount or anyone who can 3D print the parts?

      I know it may be a bit of a long shot but I'm looking to buy a HEQ5 Pro mount or an NEQ6 Pro or something similar. Preferably belt driven but not necessary as can happily modify it. Please let me know if you have anything! Thanks.
