1 only - This is technically a second-hand instrument as it was purchased December 2011 - due to upgrading to a larger 10" telescope, I no longer required this Celectron telescope.
There are also several other Telescope related items for sale:- Revelation Eye piece & filter set, Celestron / Sky Watcher power pack, T ring adaptor, Nikon DSLR adaptor, Philips Star Gazer chart/book etc.
If all Items are purchased together the total price will be £499.99.
I have used the telescope 5 or 6 times - it is therefore in as new condition and comes complete with all of the accessories, instructiuon & original boxes etc.
If you have any questions - please do not hesitate to ask......
