    Default NexStar 8SE with extras – excellent condition



    NexStar 8SE with extras – excellent condition - $950

    Up for sale is my NexStar 8SE in excellent condition with some extras. I bought this last September and it has served me well. It is hard to sell because it has become like an old friend. I have had telescopes over the years, but this was my first really nice one. The only reason I am selling it is because I bought a Celestron C9.25 on an AVX mount, so this should go to some who will enjoy it as much as I did.

    Comes with

    8SE OTA, Mount, and tripod with NexStar hand controller, 25mm eyepiece, dc power cord – ($1199 new)
    ADM dovetail - a nice upgrade to the Celestron dovetail which allows greater movement of the OTA for balancing and the 2 inch diagonal ($70)
    ScopeStuff brand laser pointer mount and a green laser pointer– great if you want to use a laser pointer as a finder ($42)
    HighPoint Scientific 2” 99% dielectric diagonal with 1.25 inch adapter - so you can upgrade to 2 inch eyepieces for those great wide angle views ($115)
    Astrozap DewSheild – ($40)
    JMI electric Motofocuser – prevents vibration while focusing ($179)
    Celestron RACI 9x50 finder scope with illuminated reticle ($100)
    AC Power cord ($25)
    Set of vibration pads – great if viewing on a deck or concrete
    Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Mask – great for obtaining perfect focus ($24)
    The NexStar user guide book ($19)

    Total value new: $1800

    Shipping is expensive but I will cover it out of the sale of the item, but will ship only to lower 48 states.

    Hi BigBluefanga,

    I could knock some off the price if you came and picked it up.

    I'll see what I can come up with (in other words I'll see if the wife will let me).

    Don't have an answer yet but don't hesitate to sell if you get a buyer.
