Altair Wave Series 80mm F6 Super ED Triplet APO with Planostar Flattener

I am reluctantly selling my 80mm triplet scope and field flattener which is in absolute mint condition. The reason for sale is that the focuser is not compatible with my new sesto senso auto focuser (though is compatible with most other auto focusers on the market).

The scope retails for £1,000 and the flattener is an additional £100 and more details of the scope can be found on the Altair page here https://www.altairastro.com/altair-wave-series-80mm-f6-super-ed-triplet-apo-80-480.html The scope has a fantastic reputation with very fine optics and I am more than happy to provide photos taken on request. The quality of the 2.5 inch rack and pinion 1:10 focuser is a particular highlight!

With this combination, you only need add a dlsr and a t-ring to start imaging. The flattener ensures that imaging in this combination requires no complicated measuring for spacers.

If you are unable to pick up, I can explore postage but risk, insurance and postage costs will reside with the buyer.

Here are the specifications:

Altair Wave Series Triplet 80mm APO Specifications & Features:
Optical tube with air-spaced 80mm F6 Triplet ED lens system (480mm focal length)
Ohara S-FPL53 ED (SD) glass element and mating elements housed in a precision adjustable CNC machined lens cell with temperature compensation interleaving.

Retractable lens shade / dew shield.
2.5" "Rack 'n Pinion" Geared dual speed focuser with 1:10 micro-focuser.
Entire focuser rotates relative to the optical tube for easy photographic composition.

Starlight Xpress SXV-H9 CCD

Selling a Starlight Xpress SXV-H9 CCD. A few external markings but otherwise excellent condition. Optical window and sensor immaculate. Includes: camera, 1.25" nosepiece, usb 2.0 cable and power converter. This camera is cooled (1 stage peltier) but it has no temperature control. The thermal noise from the ICX285AL SONY sensor is really low. Read noise is also rather low for a CCD, around ~4 to 6 e-. Excellent camera for beginning astrophotography and scientific projects in photometry and spectroscopy.

Asking 480 pounds. Shipping is included for the UK and EU countries.

Helios Apollo 15x85mm Observation Binoculars complete Horizon 8115 Heavy Duty Tripod

Hello,

I’m selling my Helios Apollo 15x85 observation binoculars. I bought these new around Three Years ago but they have only been used a handful of times to be honest.

The binoculars themselves are like new condition and the optics are A1. It comes complete with a transportable case. I will state that some of the lining inside the case has come unstuck but this is purely as cosmetic thing to be honest and can be re-glued if desired.

Im also selling a Horizon 8115 Tripod for the binoculars. These again were bought new around the same time. I would like to point out that the plastic lip for the lock on the tripod head broke off but it is still usable and apart from this they are like new as welland I have taken this into consideration in the price.

Photos on request.

If you have further questions please feel free to ask.

I’m asking for £300.00 for both.

EQ5 synscan mount and tripod

I have upgraded to eq6, and so this eq5 mount is for sale. It was mounted in a pier with a C8 for some time and worked well. The holder for the Synscan box (where power plugs in etc) had broken and I have fitted a strap so that it can be attached to the tripod leg. No other defects that I know of. There are two counterweights, and I have included a lead for connecting to EQMOD. EQMOD works well with this mount.
Seeking £325 ovno. Will take Paypal but buyer pays fees or quotes friends.
This whole lot is heavy so it will be local pickup but I am willing to travel up to 35 miles to meet a buyer.

Starlight Xpress VF H9 CCD camera

For sale one Starlight Xpress VF H9 CCD camera used until recently in my observatory and works very well, although it has a single vertical line down the RH side caused by a hot pixel but this is processed out quite easily with calibration files. Also the power unit is 12 volt only as the 240 volt transformer developed a fault. That didn't bother me as I only use 12 volt in my observatory. These issues do not deter what is a fabulous camera, but issues they are. Hence the low price of £380.00. Delivered in the UK.

Explore Scientific ED 127mm f 7.5 triplet APO Refractor (FCD01 glass), Essential Version Optical Tube Assembly - REDUCED


This is the previous to the current version of the above with the 2in dual speed 10:1 focuser (which in my opinion is smoother than the considerably more expensive 2.5in hex focuser), sliding dewcap, Vixen-profile mounting bar and rings featuring a handle with camera mounting rail, and which also came with a heavy duty flight case (see photos), but the latter is not included with the version currently on sale in the UK.

It is an excellent all round instrument, in particular for observing the moon and planets, shows very little false colour, and is in fact significantly better colour corrected than an early model 6in Astro Physics refractor that I once owned. I bought it new only 12 months ago, and the only reason for the sale is that, possibly against my better judgment, I recently decided to upgrade to the FCD 100 version with the 2.5 in Hex focuser.

In very good condition, and priced at £875 ono, this represents a saving of around £400 on the new price of the current version which retails at £1267, but over £550 if you add on the cost of the heavy duty flight case, which as mentioned previously is not now included with the version currently on sale in the UK, but is available from one of the main suppliers for £186.

In addition I have fitted the brand new mounting bar and rings, which came with my FCD100 scope, to the one I am selling, as those it originally came with were modified to enable me to mount it on my Newtonian Reflector. Also included (if required), which did not originally come with the telescope, is a 2in to 1.25in adaptor worth about £20, but the star diagonal and eyepiece shown in one of the photos, which also did not come with the telescope, are not included in the sale. I may however be prepared to consider selling the new ES 2in star diagonal, which came with the FCD100 scope, as a separate item if required.

Ideally for collection only as I would prefer any purchaser to inspect the instrument beforehand and be satisfied, I can also easily reattach it to my 14 in Newtonian (see photo) if anyone wanted to look through it (weather permitting).

Payment by bank transfer or cheque (I don't do PayPal), in the case of cheque payment I would need to wait for it to clear before releasing the telescope.
