I purchased this telescope used with a dead controller board.  
This board is no longer available from Celestron.  In order 
for the scope to track an AC cord is hardwired to the drive motor.  
DC battery operation no longer functions.

The Ultima 8 is a heavy duty version of the fork mounted Celestron 8.  
The OTA comes with Starbright coatings on the primary and secondary.  
The drive incorporated in this model is a very accurate Byers 359 tooth 
worm gear system with a single synchronous AC motor.  The wedge has the 
deluxe latitude adjuster installed.  The tripod is the extra heavy duty 
armored model.

      Celestron 7mm orthoscopic 1.25” eyepiece

      Celestron 30mm plossl 1.25” eyepiece
