In good used condition (some cosmetic paint scratches to the base) and is the perfect size for most astronomy needs because it remains portable despite the large aperture!
Fitted with the best focuser upgrade you can add to a CPC telescope, the feather touch dual Speed

Details from the web below:The Celestron C9.25” is already a favourite among astrophotographers and discerning visual observers and offers 33% more light gathering than the 8" model. The CPC 925 GPS was specifically designed for visual infinity focus when using 2" eyepieces and has an optimized baffle system to benefit astrophotography by minimizing vignetting at the edge of the field of view. Its longer primary focal length and lower magnification secondary mirror contribute to a flatter field of view at the focal plane and helps to further reduce optical aberrations.

What makes the CPC 925 GPS great for astrophotography?
• Longer focal length primary and lower magnification secondary— Contributes to a flatter focal plane with less coma and off-axis astigmatism.
• Baffle design —Optimized for astrophotography. Minimizes vignetting at the edge of the field of view. This reduces light drop off at the corners of your film plane.
• Hand Figured Optics — Just like all other Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, the CPC 925 GPS optics are individually matched and hand figured to ensure the highest optical quality in every telescope.
• Focus mechanism — At the heart of Celestron's Schmidt-Cassegrain focus mechanism are pre-loaded ball bearings, not bushings, minimizing focus shift.
• Heavy-duty die cast aluminum fork arms —For maximum rigidity.
• Unique roller bearing design bearing and shaft —The telescope base rotates around a wide 9.5” track for maximum stability; especially important when equatorially mounted for imaging.
• Autoguider port — For interfacing an autoguider or a drive corrector for long exposure imaging or astrophotography.
• StarBright XLT coatings — High quality multi-layer coatings maximize transmission of light to the film plane.
