I would be happy to throw in my 3 volumes of Burnham’s celestial handook and my customized list of deep sky objects, arranged by declination from north to south for each hour of R.A.

If someone is seriously interested and wants to come try out the telescope as I have it set up (weather permitting), I would be happy to put them up over night. Also to instruct how to use the equipment if they aren’t familiar. This instrument formerly belonged to Jack Newton.
