This kit is based around the excellent Celestron C6 XLT (https://www.celestron.com/products/c6-a-xlt-cg-5-optical-tube-assembly) and was put together for a specific astronomy project which was abandoned and therefore never used. All optics are contained in two Peli Cases for protection. The full kit is high quality, very comprehensive and ready to go. The full kit comprises all the following:


Celestron C6 XLT OTA
Baader MicroGuide Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece
SkyTee-2 Alt-azimuth mount
Baader Hyperion Zoom Eyepiece Mk III
Baader Hyperion Zoom barlow 2.25x
FLO Dual-Fit Desiccant Cap
Berlebach Uni-18 tripod

Baader OIII Filter
William Optics 1.25" DURA-BRIGHT Dielectric Diagonal
Rigel QuikFinder Compact Reflex Sight
Celestron Illuminated RACI Finderscope

There are additional basic items included that came as part of the telescope purchase but are not listed as they are replaced by the above e.g. Celestron diagonal and finder),

The kit would retail at circa £2650.

The kit has been carefully stored and is flawless. Due to its size and nature it must be collected, though I would be prepared to meet part way.

I am listing this elsewhere therefore I reserve the right to withdraw the sale at any time.

I am open to sensible very near offers

Skywatcher 12" Dobsonian Synscan

Skywatcher Skyliner 300P FlexTube SynScan GoTo 12 Inch Dobsonian.
This is a lovely telescope with excellent reviews. I have had it 9 months and used it only twice due to unrelated circumstances.
As I am no longer a 'spring chicken' I have realised it is too heavy for me to move around as I had hoped. I put lockable wheels on which help but as I do outreach at times it is too cumbersome for me to get it into the car and as I have no helpers I have reluctantly decided that it must go.
I am willing to accept a reasonable offer, it is as new.
The full price of this telescope varies between £1,400 and £1,600.

GSO 8" RC (Ritchey-Chretien) Carbon Fiber OTA with upgraded Feather Touch Focuser, Dew Shield + Case

REDUCED BARGAIN.
Begrudgingly selling my 8in RC-CF OTA. I just don't use it often enough to justify keeping it - my 4in refractor is challenging me enough these days. Purchased in November 2016 from 365Astronomy (Further details here: https://www.365astronomy.com/GSO-8-f-8-Ritchey-Chretien-Astrograph-with-Carbon-Fiber-Tube.html). I upgraded the stock focuser with a silky smooth Feather Touch (well worth the extra money). Optics recently collimated ready for Winter.
Comes with Astrozap dew shield and padded Artesky carry case, and extra Baader vixen dovetail mount fitted for a small accessory.

It is in excellent condition. There are the usual marks on the vixen dovetail where it has been mounted. This version comes with a Losmandy bar too for accessories on the top of it (or mounting the opposite side to how I have it in the pics). There are Carbon Fiber manufacturing marks on the inside of the protective covering. They were there when purchased and of course have no bearing on it's excellent optical performance.

Buyer collects or arranges courier - it's not particularly heavy for a scope of this size (thanks to the CF!), but enough to want to mount this on a HEQ5 or equivalent so that should give you an idea of things here. I'm willing to drive within 50 miles of Southport to deliver though. Payment first through PayPal. No cash on delivery.
(HEQ5 Pro mount *not* included!)

Brand new Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO Mount With Rowan Belt Mod Fitted, Full Regrease and Upgraded Geoptik Dual Saddle

We have a very special mount here. This is a brand new Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO mount and tripod, with the Rowan belt modification fitted by us in house. The mount has also had a full strip down, a full degrease and regrease and finally a tune and load test.

We have also fitted an upgraded Geoptik dual load saddle to this mount making it compatible with losmandy style mounting plates.

A lovely portable mount with silk like axis ideal for imaging up to a telescope size. A perfect upgrade from lower spec equatorial mounts or alt az users wanting to progress into astrophotograhy.

As always, finance is available on this with a zero deposit. Please contact us for more details.

The belt modification kit ensures very quiet and accurate tracking and minimal backlash. Backlash is an issue that the geared mounts suffer from and make imaging difficult. This is a thing of the past with the belt mod kit. These belts last a very long time and can be replaced once they do start to wear. A far superior kit to the stock gears.

Full specification can be found below:

PRO-SERIES is the name for the new generation of professional quality telescopes and mounts of the Sky-Watcher range, targeted at the most discerning and critical observers.

PRO-SERIES products are manufactured to extremely high levels of optical and mechanical precision, undergoing very strict quality control procedures and testing by specially assigned technicians, to ensure the highest standards of quality and performance are consistently maintained.

Designed for amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a precision computerized GOTO system, the HEQ5 PRO SkyScan is your answer. The Sky-Watcher HEQ5 PRO SkyScan is designed with the novice user in mind. With the user-friendly pushbutton hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 13,400 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. HEQ5 PRO SkyScan
The computerized SkyScan hand controller.

Features
The HEQ5 SkyScan also comes with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate:
Positioning Accuracy up to 1 arc minute. Accuracy enhanced by software collimation error (mount mechanical error) compensation.
Stepper motors with 1.8° step angle and 64 micro steps driven.
Slewing speed up to 3.4°/sec (800X).
Auto Guider Interface for astro-photography.
Guiding speed selectable from 0.25X, 0.50X, 0.75X, or 1X.
Object database containing complete M, NGC, and IC catalogues.
Minimal vibration for steady long-exposure photography.
Periodic error correction (PEC).


There is a pole-finder telescope supplied with the HEQ5 Mount that can be used for accurate polar alignment. This method of polar alignment is sufficient for virtually all visual use of the telescope.

Optional Accessories
Thera are some accessories that can be used with this mount including:
Pillar tripod support for HEQ5.
Power Supply Unit (17AH) for EQ6 and HEQ5.


Auto-Guiding
You can use this mount as part of an auto-guiding system for astrophotography. Other components that you will need are:
A computer to control the telescope mount (e.g. Windows 2000/XP/Vista).
Auto-guider control software such as:
AstroArt is a good commercial solution, because it can control multiple CCD cameras (e.g. for guiding and imaging) and it can be used for image stacking, processing, photometry, etc.

EQUINOX 120ED REFRACTOR - Excellent Condition - with Moonlite Dual-Speed Focuser. **NOW SOLD**

For sale is my Skywatcher Equinox 120ED refractor. It comes complete with the OTA itself, tube rings, dovetail, fitted Moonlite dual-speed focuser with Moonlite 2/1.25 inch adapter, the original focuser and an aluminium foam-filled carry case.

The telescope is in excellent condition and the optics are first class, it is a great all round telescope and excels for lunar and planetary. I had hoped to keep it for the forthcoming Mars apparition, but I'm afraid it has to go for financial reasons.

Attached below are two links, the first contains info on the telescope and the second for the Moonlite focuser.

Brand New In Box Celestron Edge HD 8" OTA 2yr G'tee Save £300 *Collect/Meet Only

Save Yourself £300 This Christmas
(Or get the wife to buy it for you and tell her to buy herself something nice with the money she's saved)

Brand New Celestron Edge 8" HD OTA & Visual Back
In Perfect Box Without Any Stickers Labels Etc
The Box Has Been Opened Only To Inspect Contents
2 Year Celestron Warranty
Perfect For Visual As Well As Astro Photography

This is from an Evolution setup I've just bought
I wrongly assumed that Celestron would have drilled extra mounting holes in the casings (as the tube will be 90 deg from norm) but they have not (morons). As a result there are no centre holes to fit my accessory rails and all the nice stuff I have to mount on them. It also place's the focuser on the bottom instead of the side.
I am not prepared to drill holes in a brand new £1300 scope
I also failed to account for the fact that the new flat optical layout will render my other SCT kit reducers etc useless.

Cash or bank transfer on collection please
Happy to meet up (I'm travelling down to Nottingham Between Hols)

Celestron Evolution 6 + Accessories **REDUCED**

Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 GoTo mount and SCT. Excellent condition and with accessories.
I've been delighted with my Celestron Evolution 6 but now need to upgrade. I’m therefore selling my Evo 6 together with a few extras.

Only 8 months old so still under warranty. Rarely used telescope with all standard equipment, dew shield and Bahtinov mask. All in as-new condition.

The scope and fittings have been well looked after. It’s quick to set up, and comes with all the original bits and pieces. I’ve also upgraded the firmware on the mount. Most of the time I’ve used the Celestron app over WiFi to control the mount, occasionally using the handset. The built in battery has been very useful, especially when I’ve taken the whole setup to a dark site.

Telescope Tube
Telescope Mount, Tripod & Spreader
40mm Eyepiece
12mm Eyepiece
StarPointer
Star Diagonal
Telescope Handcontrol
Dew Shield
Bartinov Mask

The total retail price comes to over £1250.00. A good saving over new and is still under warranty.

No boxes, other than for the accessories.

Collection only, but will consider meeting half way for cost of petrol.

Located in the Midlands.

£995.

Payment by direct bank transfer, Paypal Gift (or pay fees) or cash on collection.

Thanks for looking
