High Quality telescope combination ideal for observing and astrophotography
This Celestron telescope combination has been very well cared for and is in excellent condition. It is for sale because I have downsized my house and its backyard observatory, and my new living quarters are too small for this telescope.

The sale package includes:
1) Celestron 8 CPC telescope with HD optics and very solid Alt-Az dual-fork mount. Mount has built-in GPS for aligning the scope.
2) Rigel finder for aligning the scope (Rigel is much less prone to dewing than other finders);
3) Two premium accessories that convert the scope into an excellent astrophotography rig:
(a) a Starizona Hyper-Star focal reducer which converts the Celestron into an F/2.1 telephoto lens capable of excellent high-resolution astrophotos; and
(b) an Atik 420 color astro camera matched to this telescope and the Hyper-Star.
4) The package includes Celestron 1.25" diagonal; Antares F/6.3 focal reducer for wider-angle viewing; Antares 2" Prime Focus Camera Adapter, for use with DSLR cameras, instead of the Atik; internal counterweight for use when using the Hyper-Star/Atik combination; and Starizona Power-Pack for operating the mount; and custom dew shield.

Of course the scope can be used for purely visual observation without either the Hyper-Star or the Atik camera mounted.

Price of the package is $1995 CDN, compared to original retail price of the components, which is approximately 4,800 CDN.
I will hand deliver the scope and accessories to an address within 300 miles of Vancouver BC. Otherwise will ship.

Price: $1,995
