|Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 GoTo mount and SCT. Excellent condition and with accessories.|
I've been delighted with my Celestron Evolution 8 but now need to upgrade. Iím therefore selling my Evo 8 together with a few extras.
The scope and fitting have been well looked after. Itís quick to set up, and comes with all the original bits and pieces. Iíve also upgraded the firmware on the mount. Most of the time Iíve used SkySafari Plus to control the mount, occasionally using the handset. The built in battery has been very useful, especially when Iíve taken the whole setup to a dark site.
The red dot sight was difficult to use, as the red dot tends to obscure the star youíre trying to locate. So I replaced that with a Celestron Starpointer Pro. When illuminated this shows two concentric circles so you can line up the star in the centre.
SCTís give a narrow field of view, so Iím including the Celestron 0.63 Corrector/Reducer. Without the corrector the scope is great for moon and planets.
The diagonal which came with the scope didnít impress me very much. I replaced it with a Revelation 2Ē diagonal which is much better. I also bought a Revelation 42mm 2Ē eyepiece and Iím including that as well.
The only addition Iíve made to the scope is to change the collimating Philips screws. Iíve replaced them with thumb screws, similar to Bobís Knobs, which makes collimating much easier.
So hereís a list of whatís included with current retail prices (you can check these online);
Celestron Evolution 8 scope, mount, tripod, hand controller, 2 eyepieces, etc. £1799.00
Revelation 2Ē Diagonal 99% Dielectric £139.00
Celestron Corrector/Reducer £99.00
Celestron Starpointer Pro £28.00
Revelation 2Ē 42mm eyepiece £64.00
The total retail price comes to £2129.00
Iím asking just £995.00
Payment by direct bank transfer, or cash on collection.
Collection only. Iím in Worcestershire, but prepared to meet half way within reason.
Thanks for looking
