I am selling my Celestron C9.25 SCT telescope, purchased in early 2000s from Astronomics. It is a fine scope, in very good condition with minimal wear, having unfortunately spent most of the time indoors while I was out with my refractor. Alas, I am ultimately a refractor guy.

Included in the purchase price are:
  1. C9.25 OTA

  2. Losmandy mounting dovetail plate (purchased from Losmandy store.)

  3. 2 inch visual back with TeleVue extender for a star diagonal

  4. 8 x 50 Orion straight-through finderscope

  5. Telrad finder, mounted Telrad base already on OTA
The photos demonstrate the scope on my G11, which is not for sale. I live in Flagstaff, AZ. The OTA will ship in its original box with bubble packaging added, and I am asking buyer to pay all shipping and insurance. I will ship additional contents in separate box. I am happy to answer questions. The asking price is $695.

Vixen SXW Computerized, Equatorial Mount with Starbook for $1000.

I purchased this mount, and a Vixen 8" Astrograph, from the estate of the past president of the Riverside Astronomical Society, the astronomical portion being sold by RAS at a past RTMC. The astrograph was sold some time ago but the mount has been my primary observatory mount for solar observing. It comes with the manual, deluxe tripod, Starbook controller and features which were standard equipment on the original unit. Weight capacity is stated to be 35 pounds.

This is a very sophisticated mount with an exquisite controller system, the Starbook. It has been very happy with a coaxially mounted Lunt 80mm double stacked solar scope and a Stellarvue 80mm triplet with a Thousand Oaks white light filter on it. I also run a Celestron 9.25" cassegrain on it for planetary.

This is a very good deal at $1000, exactly what I paid for it. If it makes it easier, I might be open to a small part trade.
