COMPLETED - SOLD Celestron C8 XLT Advanced with imaging extras

Recommended Posts

For sale is a great condition Celestron C8 XLT Advanced (black tube version).

I bought this used at the start of this year as my foray into astronomy. I now only image so I've decided to go for a more suitable scope for the targets im interested in.

Since purchasing, I've added celestron CGE (same fitment as losmandy) dovetails top and bottom for a more secure mount fitment and for a guidescope up top. I also have a standard vixen dovetail (with marks) as a spare if your mount does not take the larger format (included).

The scope also comes with a celestron F6.3 focal reducer/flattener, sct to t2 adapter, sct visual back, 1.25" diagonal, 15mm eyepiece, 25mm eyepiece, celestron dew shield and a 9x30 finder scope.

The condition is great overall. There is the normal few dust marks inside and on the corrector plate, but these have no impact on the viewing or imaging capability. The previous owner also had cleaned the front plate, leaving a little residue, but this has no impact and I did not want to risk any further cleaning. Please see images. I've also included a few images taken with this setup and a DSLR.

Im asking £750 for the lot.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Collection from Northwich, Cheshire.
