I am selling my virtually unused Celestron 114LCM. Bought for a tour of Scotland when we had no clear nights for two months. Now surplus to requirements. Mint condition, with all original paperwork, 10 & 25mm eyepieces and original (useless!!) red dot finder; I fitted a decent right angle 6x30 optical finder scope (excellent!), which is included in the sale. The computer system works very well indeed, very simple to set up. The alt/az mount can be fitted to a heavy duty tripod for better stability if required.

I can send you photo's on request: philromford@gmail.com

I am asking £140 with the finder scope (worth £30 or so)
