Goodbye to one of my scopes

Sadly the time has come for me and my Celestron C9.25 to part company.
I needed to sell it to raise a bit of capital to replace my ancient and very nearly dead central heating system.
I had hoped it would last out until the spring, but remembering how cold it got last winter, I just can't take that chance. I have only had it 18 months and have obtained some really good photos of Jupiter and Saturn, but I also want to concentrate with my APO refractors and my newly acquired Atik mono 16 IC-S ccd and what with the limited seeing we've had lately the planets offer a too easy target over DSOs.

So it's goodbye C9.25!
