I have 2 local leads here in SE Michigan, but nobody has committed to buying.

I'm trying local pick-up w/o shipping $$.

If not sold locally by June I'll open up to the lower 48 states.

Not considering international shipment, too much hassle.


Everything is truly excellent condition, transparently I bought it, used it, but not enough to justify me keeping it.

Maybe 25-ish total hours, and last year I took it out just once.

As I have young kids the late night astronomy hobby conflicts with them (or me, as tired in morning), so I'll take 5-7 years off and get back into it later life-stage, ie the empty-Nester stage.

AVS friends in Michigan, time for me to sell some of my “stuff”, this is real astronomy gear.
Great for visual viewing and also DLSR imaging.
If interested let me know, if you know of someone who is and it sells to them I’ll pay you a $50 finders fee upon closing the deal.

*** Celestron EdgeHD 800 CGEM Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope ***

For Sale, asking $2,500 USD, mint condition: Celestron EdgeHD 800 CGEM Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope + lots of extras.
This is a complete kit for both visual and imaging. The EdgeHD series is top of line flat field optics. Includes: GPS, optics, filters, Canon DSLR T-mount, anit-vibrtation pads, laser finder scope, etc.

Total paid in 2011; $3,207 USD breakdown: $2499 (scope)+ $259 (optics/other)+ $82 (AC + light filter) +$81 (laser)+$30 (dew shade) +$30 (camera mtg) +30 (T-mount) +$196 (GPS)


No, I've not given up my hobby, just focusing on wide angle imaging.
Due to lifestage with young kids it's not practical for me to be serious with this gear, in 10 years I'll get back into this.
