"New" scopes waiting for clear skies!
When the skies aren't clear my eyes go to craigslist to see if anyone has a scope I can't live without. And today I found another!
I picked up an old school Celestron C 5 telephoto 750mm f/6 (black version) for $90 off craigslist today. The previous owner has chased solar eclipses all over the world! Jealous!
I had to clean the backside of the front plate (no problem, it seemed to have gotten 'smokey').
Works great... now just have to get a mounting plate and a couple of rings and it is good to go for the eclipse in August!
