For the SERIOUS VISUAL OBSERVER: Obsession 18" Dobsonian reflector, encoders and Argo Navis DSC, equatorial
Having moved into astro-imaging, I am not making much use of my visual observing gear. So, for sale in good condition:
- Obsession 18" f4.5 Dobsonian reflector
- encoders and Argo Navis DSC computer
- Osypowski wood single axis equatorial platform (needs new battery)
The scope was made for me in 2000. It shows its age/usage in a few scratches to the woodwork but mechanically and optically remains in very good condition. The mirrors in particular are pristine. The encoders and Argo Navis give the scope a powerful push-to capability. The equatorial platform was made for me at the same time as the scope. With a new battery pack, it enables RA tracking so you can observe without having to nudge the scope.
The blurb on the Obsession website is not exaggerated. This scope is serious visual fun. It needs a garage or shed/obsy for storage, from which you can easily wheel it out when you want to use it.
The overall package retails now at c £10,000 so no offers please.
Inspection welcome (I'm about 5 miles from both M1/A1). Buyer collects. Payment by Paypal.
