Articles for Sale

Ed Popowski sent outreach chair an email offering to sell his telescope to one of our members:

“I am a former member of AAAP and I am selling my telescope. Please announce this to anyone interested. Celestron NexStar 5, excellent condition, stored in form-fitting case. The telescope was not used that much. It is in very good shape and looks brand new. It includes four eyepieces, diagonal, filters, and a solid tripod. It’s packed in a case for protection and portability. I’m looking to downgrade. I really would like it to be used by an AAAP member. The finder has a chipped insert. It can be repaired or a new finder can be purchased. I would like $200 for the telescope. It will be priced to sell. I live in Yardley, PA.”

This is quite a generous offer. New models of the NexStar 5SE are currently discounted $100 to $599, and they don’t include eyepieces, filters, or a case. If you are interested, contact him at:
