Takahashi Mewlon 210 (New other)

After swaying backwards and forwards on this I’ve finally decided to sell. Ordered from Ian King and tested once to confirm collimation this is effectively a new unused perfect example Mewlon. With my AP costs increasing I can’t justify holding onto this any longer as I simply haven’t had the time to use it.

Boxed and papers. As always I’d much rather a personal collection so the scope an be examined.

UK only as shipping would be expensive and worrying for all involved.

Meade LX200 GPS 12 inch, with giant field tripod and mega meade wedge and dew heater/zapper tape.and extras......

Sold the Pulsar dome last year and now need to free up room in the garage, so therefore the 12 incher has to go.
It is used, but has been housed/stored in and exclusively used in the dome for 9 years. The field tripod legs have rusted slightly but no doubt will come back with wet n dry sandpaper, therefore cosmetic problem, not the end of the world and doesn't hamper the tripod in any way shape or form. I am also including the giant Meade wedge and top quality rails and rings for secondary scope on top.
The optics are in tip top condition and always had silica bags inserted into the 2 inch opening to absorb damp.
Black paint on tripod and base of OTA has bubbled a tad, but it's only cosmetic.

You will get;
Telescope will come in original shipping box.
12 inch GPS SCT with UHC coating with 'bobs knobs' for easy collimation.
hex bar Rails for extra OTA (cost £125 new....and still looks new)
Meade giant field tripod.
Meade mega wedge suitable for 12/14 inch scope.
2 inch zero image micro focuser.
Meade 2 inch diagonal.
DC power connect.
dew heater/zapper tape.
Autostar 2 Handset

REDUCED. Excellent APM APO Binoculars. 100mm 45 degree. Collimated to x 150. Pair of eyepieces,(x 27) boxed £1700 ono SOLD. Thank

Fantastic high end binocular from the APM/Lunt stable. 100mm FK61 optics, focal length 550mm (F5.5) with 45 degree angled prisms.
Purchased direct from APM, Germany in 2015 and certified to the higher collimation standard of x150. (Standard is x100). Full details on APM website. http://www.apm-telescopes.co.uk/bino-100-edapo.html These now retail for £2600 new
Overview

Double Element Air Spaced ED Apochromat (FK61)
Full Broadband Multi-Coating
Lightweight Magnesium Body
1.25” Helical Focusers with Brass Compression Rings
Extendable Dew-Shields
Integrated Handle
3/8” Tripod Mount / 1/4” adapter
1 set 20mm UWA Eyepieces (27.5x)
Supplied with 4 dust caps (front and rear)
Non gas filled

Specifications

Length – 520mm
Width – 270mm
Height – 145mm
Weight -6.7kg
Max FOV 2.8 degrees
Interpupillary distance 54-75mm
Clear Aperture on eyepiece side 23mm
Clear Aperture without on-axis vignetting 100mm
Max Magnification >100x

Comes with:
Standard screw on dust caps. These work fine

Supplied with the original 20mm 70 degree wide angle view eyepieces. (x 27.5) I have used higher grade brands such as Televue but I have found standard orthoscopics to be excellent and plossls are still effective.
Original foam packing.

Inbuilt fittings to attach to a tripod (see pictures)
Carry handle. There are two screw hols on the handle to which a red dot finderbase can be attached. Sorry – not supplied. I didn’t purchase one with the scope as I already had one and I still need it for my other instruments!)


Extras
The binoculars were not supplied with a case. I have stored these in a large plastic storage box, from B&Q. The foam packing fits inside and the bins can be transported easily and safely. The box is provided free but if you don’t require it, please say so.

I obtained a pair of rubber dust caps which I will throw in. These slip onto the dew shield and are easier to use. They will stay on whether the shields are extended or retracted, whereas the screw ons only attach when retracted. This means you can cap your bins during an observing session and keep the shields extended.
Other
There is plenty of space between the tubes for standard dew bands. (not supplied).
There is a small scratch on one of the eyepiece holders (picture can be sent)
Weight is just under 7kg without eyepieces and will fit on good standard tripods. APM now provide a single arm support which attaches to a standard tripod and allows free movement.

I have used these bins at home in suburban Chigwell and they push through he light pollution very well. At dark skies such as Kelling and Isle of Wight they competed well with refractors of considerable larger aperture. They are easy to use and take just a few minutes to set up.

Reason for selling: - Have upgraded to the larger 120mm version!
Collection from Chigwell advised. Courier arranged by buyer at buyer's risk
Cash or bank transfer accepted

ATIK 460EX mono, MINT condition - 9 months old. PLUS manual filter wheel, LRGB, Ha and OIII filters, and spacers for 55mm back foc

I am selling my ATIK 460EX mono CCD camera, due to a change in my personal circumstances and work. I am very sad to let this go because it truly is a wonderful piece of equipment and I have thoroughly enjoyed using it. It is in mint condition and comes with its original box etc. It has been well looked after and cared for. I bought it on March 9th 2017, and so it is well within its first year's guarantee!!! I am also including the power supply for it. The post and packing will be included in the sale price, inside the UK.


PLEASE NOTE, WITH REGARD TO THE ITEMS BELOW: I am open to selling the camera separately, so please email me about this if you need to.


Also for sale is a 5 position ZWO manual filter wheel, which is excellent and so very easy to use.


There are also two high quality narrowband filters available - a 7nm Ha and a 6.5nm OIII, both made by Altair Astro. They are wonderful filters, and are as good as other reputable makes out there on the market, that I have previously used.


The LRGB filters I am selling are made by Baader, but although they are their cheapest version, they are also very good too. I have had no issues with them. All filters are 31.7mm, 1.25 inches, in diameter.


I am also selling all my spacers, which work with the filter wheel, creating the regularly needed 55mm back focus.


Here you have everything you need to get into CCD imaging, all in one go! It calculates to over £500 off what would be the brand new price!


The photos are of the actual camera and filter wheel I own, and the California Nebula mosaic, in Ha, is one I took recently with this equipment...


Thanks for looking and all the best.

Simon

Due to too many telescopes, I am selling my APM APO-ED refractor, 152mm diameter and 1200mm focal length, f7.9. It is in excellent condition, with a large 2.5" focuser and microfocuser,on a Losmandy platform and in a strong case. I have the original double box, but would prefer collection. For a review, look up that for the Lunt 152mm APO-ED, which is identical and illustrates how good the refractor is, especially in control of chromatic artefacts, which I can fully support from observation with up to a 3.5 mm eyepiece

(Also available, but not part of price the APM-Riccardi focal reducer, f5.9 and adapter for fitment, and astrophotography which has not been used and is mint - £500 when part of sale.)

Lunt LS60THa/B1200C 60mm H-alpha Telescope

Reduced to £1650

Going to sell my Lunt LS60THa/B1200C 60mm H-alpha Telescope and go for a Quark and SD 80 set up so I can use the scope for wide view astro in the summer.
I have only just bought this from FLO so somebody is going to get a bargain.
I will include a Tele vue sol searcher as well.
It comes in its own fitted case and I have all the original packaging so I would be happy to post it at buyers risk and cost.
The Lunt LS60THa is a complete Solar Telescope with a 60mm aperture.
The front singlet lens reduces half the stray light of an achromat, fully eliminating the possibility of on-axis coma, astigmatism, de-centering aberrations and provides a full spherical corrected flat-field.
An internal etalon with tune adjustment allows for a

Reduced! Meade 12" LX200GPS f10 SCT with accessories

I am having to part with my old LX200GPS as I don't have the space to store it anymore and it's not getting the use it once did. It is in full working order which shouldn't be a surprise really as I ran the Meade UK workshop for years. It's an early example and a bit scruffy but it's from honest use. It has been regularly serviced. The optics collimate well and it's a good all-round scope. It comes with the giant tripod and Meade 8x50 finder scope and Autostar II handset. No diagonal or eyepieces.
I am prepared to de-fork it and fit a Losmandy style mounting rail too for sale as an OTA if required.
Collection would be handy as I have no packaging for safe transit.
Open to sensible offers.

Celestron Advanced VX 8" Edge HD telescope, little used, many extras - Norwich

Celestron Advanced 8" Edge HD telescope & extras. One owner (bought new by me July 2014) and carefully looked after. Little used and all in very nice, practically unmarked condition. Slight scratching to paint on edge of the orange fitting bar (where it secures to the mount) and signs of where securing bolts are tightened up. This is inevitable as the bar of the tube slides along to obtain correct balance before tightening.

Beautiful edge to edge sharp view, this 'scope is a joy to use - sadly it is little used as I just don't have the time. Fully computerised, set-up takes approximately 10 minutes and is highly accurate.

This is a complete set-up and includes pretty much all you could need for astronomy. Included are:

Mains electricity cable
85 AH 12 volt leisure battery
12 volt cable with crocodile clips and cigarette lighter type connection for battery
Celestron dew shield
Celestron 40mm Plossl eyepiece
20mm eyepiece
Opticstar 7.5 - 22.5mm par focal zoom eyepiece
Moon filter
Soft Cover

Currently retailing new for £1,859 without the various extras.

£1,350 or close offer for the complete kit. Cash on collection only from 10 miles south of Norwich - PLEASE NOTE - I WILL NOT POST.


Manufacturers Detail:

Advanced VX 8” EdgeHD: truly the ultimate entry-level astroimaging package. This package combines the groundbreaking new Advanced VX mount with Celestron’s best optics, the EdgeHD optical system. This setup offers the astroimager maximum versatility – allowing up to 3 different f-stop configurations. Users can attach a camera to the rear of the telescope and shoot at f/10, or attach our 8-inch focal reducer and shoot at f/7. Additionally, EdgeHD is Fastar/Hyperstar compatible, giving imagers the option to shoot at ultra-fast f/2. No matter which configuration you choose, EdgeHD technology gives you pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of the CCD sensor.

With an 8-inch optical tube and our portable Advanced VX mount, this setup can be easily transported and assembled by one person. You’ll also have plenty of load capacity to attach your camera and other accessories. This setup is simple enough for a beginner to use, but can also provide years of enjoyment for sophisticated astroimagers.

About the Mount

The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope can take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. You’ll be able to track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction. Image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. Advanced VX features significantly larger base castings than our previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
