Condition: This is a black-tube Fastar C8 OTA in excellent condition, with clean optics and body.  The previous owner removed four of the screws for accessories tubes on the back ring, and put black duct tape over the holes to prevent any stray light entry; see photos. This does not affect performance.  
  
This is the barebones OTA, with no diagonal, eyepieces, or even visual back, which can be purchased separately.  This makes sense, as this scope was previously only used for astrophotography.  It includes: 
  • A Celestron 6x30 finder
  • A Celestron T-adapter SC (#93633-A) 
  • Vixen-style dovetail
This is a great deal at HALF OFF and won't last!
