The Celestron Super C8

One of the first C8 produced by Celestron in Torrance, California. The Super C8 was introduced in the mid 1980 and was an upgrade to the standard C8 introduced in the 70s. Made entirely in the US. Extremely sturdy and powerful, this comes with two Celestron lenes - a 30 mm (medium power) and a 12 mm (higher power). The telescope itself is very clean. I would say it's been in its case most of the time. The telescope comes with lens caps, C8 case with foam protection, the original tripod, and original star wedge. powerful finder scope (made in Japan) star diagonal, and bolts for securing the telescope to the wedge and for securing the wedge to the tripod. All item on the scope are in working order including the focus function. This also comes with a T adapter for camera use, and original remote for controlling the scope by cable.

I have been unable to test the scope using the remote because the battery pack that comes with the scope is not functioning. Also I do not have a 12 V DC adapter that plugs into the remote. So I have no way of knowing if the tracking works on this instrument. Also the Celestron case's foam padding does not exactly fit the telescope. It would be an easy matter to cut some extra foam out so the scope will fit better. Why am I selling it? It's too big and heavy for me. I'm getting older and feel more comfortable with a smaller instrument that I can set up and use more easily.
