C8 Carbon fiber Fastar ready OTA
w/TEMP-est fans installed

I have for sale a Celestron 8" SCT carbon fiber fastar/hyperstar ready OTA with retrofitted TEMP-est fans. Price is listed in CDN dollars.

Includes the following:
- C8 Carbon fiber optical tube assembly with TEMPest fans installed
- original focuser (not shown in pictures)
- orange d-series dovetail
- bob's knobs (not installed)

Tote is included at no additional charge for a local buyer only. I will not ship the tote.

Items from photo that are not included in the asking price but are available for an additional amount:
- ADM D-series dovetail, add $70
- Feather touch micro-focuser, add $225
- baader click-lock, add $50 (also pending)

At the time of installing the TEMP-est fans, a sorbothane gasket from Starizona was installed on the secondary (fastar) assembly. This ensures that the assembly will not rotate when removing or replacing it when switching in/out the hyperstar lens assembly. This is a commonly reported problem that affects celestron OTA's as shipped from the factory.

If the buyer does not purchase the feather touch micro-focuser (pictured on scope) with the scope, then I will install the original focuser before shipping. The scope includes bob's knobs but they do not come installed.

Reason for selling... I have too much gear and the C8 overlaps closely with one another scope I have. I'm sure I'll regret selling it as it's really a great scope for grab and go. However, I'm mostly into imaging and I've decided that keeping it for grab & go use in not a good enough reason for holding on to it.

Local buyer is preferred but will ship after 1-2 weeks if there is no local interest.
Note: I have the original double boxes for shipping.

Payment by paypal (goods) or interac e-transfer preferred.
If paying by paypal, buyer to cover 3% paypal fee.
Face to face purchase to be either all cash or e-transfer payment.
Shipping, insurance and handling cost to be estimated based on buyer's location.

Thanks for looking,
Price: $750
