A beautiful old Celestron C5

This showed up via UPS today... a beautiful old Celestron C5. I wasn't looking to pick up another scope, but you don't see these very often and this one became available at a very attractive price. The corrector needed to be cleaned, but that was about it. I managed to get it out for few hours tonight and get it aligned. The optics are excellent and the drive spun right up. To be really functional I'm going to add a laser pointer as the existing little finder may be cute, it is a real neck buster. At the moment I've got it on my C8's wedge, but it should work fine on my LX3's wedge and tripod if I ever want to get both scopes out at the same time.

Neat stuff.
