My 4th C5 OTA
Believe it or not, this is my 4th C5 OTA.
I bought a Nexstar 5 and used it for quite long, and then I sold it after getting a 4" ED refractor or something like that, but I was soon caught by the portability bug.
I bought another Nexstar 5 OTA, and it was a lemon, I sent it back. And then get another one, but soon sold due to financial reason shortly. After a few years, I got this one, and this is the classical white OTA. It's made in the US, the visual back has a single lock screw.
Collimation was very well maintained, only minor tweaking was what required, I will fine tune it further with a star. This is a nice balance between portability and aperture at a very reasonable price, it's so unique.
