    Used Celestron 8" SCT Optical Tube w/V-size Dovetail

    Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical Tube Assemblies (OTA) are available individually to be used with your favorite mount. Each OTA is made to the same exacting standards as those used on all their high quality telescopes. All optical surfaces are coated with StarBright coatings.

    Besides seeing all of the Messier Catalog objects, you can also see hundreds of other, less famous, but equally interesting NGC, IC and Caldwell objects. Turn this scope to the planets and see amazing detail on the surface of Jupiter; see Cassini's Division in the rings of Saturn, and resolve details on the surface of Mars. Even the distant Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are within your reach.

    This 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain features a precision optical system with 2032mm focal length (f/10) and comes standard with Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings at no extra cost.

    Great No Hassles Customer Service

    initially, there was a little confusion with regard to the optical tube that was shipped and its description online. One email from me, a phone call from OPT sales/customer service and everything was remedied at absolutely no cost to me. Within 35 hours the exact item that I wanted arrived at my house. I Took it out for a test run the night after it arrived, it works beautifully and it operates like a brand new scope even though it is Used, or as the Cadillac dealers call it, “pre-owned”.
