Skywatcher ED80 - modified - Moonlite focuser

I am reluctantly selling my trusty Skywatcher ED80. It was my first imaging scope and most of the images on my Deep Space Images page of my website were taken with it. It has been significantly upgraded from the stock scope. The edges of the lenses have been blackened and it is fitted with a beautiful Moonlite focuser and Moonlite hi-res stepper motor for remote electronic focusing with incredible precision (far better than the human eye can detect). The focuser has the ability to be collimated and is absolutely spot on - checked by Howie Glatter laser. To use the Moonlite stepper motor you will need a suitable controller - it is not included in the sale.

Also included in the sale are the 'above and below' Vixen type dovetails. The bottom one is for attaching the scope to the mount and the top one adds stiffness to the OTA and also provides a handy mounting place for a guide scope, DSLR for dual imaging and a handle to carry it to avoid dropping it ! Homemade dew shield included.

The Skywatcher dedicated 0.85 reducer flattener works superbly. With this in place the scope is approx. 510mm FL and f6.3 which gives a worthwhile increase in field of view and speed.

As an 'easy to get results from' scope for astro imaging the ED80 takes some beating.

New prices -

Skywatcher ED80 469

Skywatcher Reducer 169

Moonlite focuser 359

Moonlite stepper motor 185 (can be removed if not required)

Extra dovetail 18

New total 1200

Everything is in excellent condition and I will probably regret selling it. The whole outfit is yours for 750. I would much prefer cash on collection from Oban, Scotland but I am happy to travel some distance to meet and would consider posting it at extra cost.

Please note - I will not split the items up with the exception of the Moonlite Hi-Res stepper motor which I will sell on its own if the purchaser of the scope doesn't want it.

650 without the Moonlite stepper motor.

Sky Watcher EQUINOX 80ED Refractor. Excellent Condition.

For sale is my fabulous Equinox 80ED refractor - only selling for financial reasons.

In excellent condition with metal case, optics are very sharp and contrasty, fine images, you can easily use x160 to advantage on planetary subjects when conditions are good enough. There are rub marks along the sides of the draw tube which is quite usual, otherwise in fine condition. Fabulous for a grab and go, spotter scope for wildlife, solar and for imaging, as well as other astronomy subjects of course.

Here are a couple of links for more information.

https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/skywatcher-equinox-80-pro-ed-refractor-optical-tube-assembly.html

http://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/review/telescopes/sky-watcher-equinox-80-ed-apo

This is a fine telescope well worth the new price - except you cannot buy one as it's not available, or not as far as I can tell. Optical Vision don't have it listed on their website any longer.

The mount in the pics is not included of course, but it is supplied with a nice 2.00/1.25 compression adapter and not the tube plug you can see. Otherwise OTA as shown, plus the metal case.



Price 375, buyer collects only for now - don't want to consign it to the postal service.

Thanks for reading.

ASTROPHYSICS 155 EDF F7 Refractor

I have had this scope for a little while now. I have enjoyed using this scope purely for visual and some lunar imaging with a dslr.
Perfect for astro-imaging.

I cannot begin to praise the performance of this scope enough, to justify how good they really are.

I have used this scope on a Bray tablet mount and a Losmandy mount. I have even used it atop a Sky-watcher SkyTee 2 mount. It works fine on all of these mount.
The scope weighs in at 23 lbs and 41" long.
The focal lenth of the scope is 1085mm at F7.
It has the 4" focuser.
Please note the focuser needs looking at. But it is still functional.
The 'Feather Touch' focuser is a nice touch.

The optics and ota are in excellent condition. An AP dewshield and ring are included. The scope travels in it's carry case.

There are lots of reviews about this scope on the net and the Astrophysics site.

The sale of this scope will go towards other astro-toys.

This is definitely one of those rare premium scope opportunity.

The asking price 6500 as stated above, I think it's justified by it's pedgree and performance.

Sorry no delivery, collection only. I live around 7 miles west of Heathrow, junction 7 off the M4.

Should you need any more details, please text or email. You could also ring in the evening, between 6 and 10 pm.

Thanks for looking. Clear Skies

William Optics 5" FLT 123 F6 Triplet. APM / LZOS Lens with Strehl >0.98. 3" feathertouch focuser

For sale is my 5" William Optics FLT 123 refractor.

This is a mid 2000's scope, back when WO sources some of their top end lenses from very well regarded lens manufactures like LZOS and LOMO in Russia. This scope features a triple lens made my LZOS with a 123mm aperture and 738mm focal length (F6). Although I don't have the lens test report (the previous owner who bought the scope new lost it, I have been told by an APM dealer that they are always >0.98 Strehl).

A full review of this scope here: http://scopeviews.co.uk/WO123.htm

This lens cell was available until the middle of 2017 through APM telescopes however LZOS are no longer supplying APM with lens under 200mm (8") and so this lens is now discounted. An APM scope with the lens cell and a 2.5" or 3.5" Starlight Feathertouch focuser is 6000 or 6500 Euros. http://www.apm-telescopes.de/index.html?key=123/738&lang=en&desc=false&anzahl=20&manu=0&cat=0

I am selling this scope as it's just a bit large for me as I only have a mobile setup and I think 4" about as large as I want to go.

The scope is very, very good condition. Comes with 3" FTF with 3.5" drawtube, William Optics Rings and a soft WO carry case.

I have 2 large boxes for the scope so I am wiling to post. UK postage with UPS, fully insured will be 65. If you are oversees (Europe) then it will be a bit more

Takahashi Epsilon 180ED Astrograph

After several years excellent service, I am now selling my Takahashi E-180ED, along with the rest of my observatory.

This astrograph is in very good condition. There is one small mark in the exterior paintwork (caused by a snail being dropped by a bird!). The secondary collimation screws have some paint missing. As with any Tak of this type, that is common, following any adjustments. There is the usual amount of dust on the primary, which is to be expected of a scope that has been used for a while. However, the mirrors are years away from needing a clean, and it does not affect the performance of this excellent instrument.

Included in the sale are the E-180, a pair of tailor-made Parallax tube rings (in my opinion more versatile, than the Takahashi ones, and a better colour!), an ADM Losmandy plate (length depending upon what is required). An Altair Astro finder-guider can also be included on a home-made mounting plate, by negotiation.

Most importantly of all, the scope is fitted with a Moonlite CRL 2.5" motorised focuser. Anybody familiar with the Epsilon knows that the original focuser is the weak link in the chain, and is underengineered for the scope. The Moonlite CRL addresses this problem, providing a rock-solid platform for mounting any manner of DSLR or large-format CCD worthy of this incredibly fast, very flat-field reflector. A HitecAstro Mount Hub Pro (MHP) is included to control the focuser. The original Takahashi focuser is also included, together with the optional 7:1 geared mechanism for it.

Lastly, a cut-down Astrozap dewshield and a homemade fabric cover is included. The original metal telescope cap is of course also provided.

The telescope will come in its original triple-box. The outermost box is scruffy from being stored, but the interior boxes are good. The original manual and toolkit are also included.

I'll be sorry to see it go, but the weather and time constraints are forcing me to scale back my astrophotography significantly. There is no other reason for the sale, and I am in no hurry to sell. I want this scope to go to someone who will enjoy it as much as I have.

I am asking 3,000 for all of this, which is a very fair price for what is being included. I will entertain sensible offers. It is possible that this telescope could be delivered, but it would depend on location, and cost would need to be discussed. Collection would be preferred.

Thanks for looking.

20 inch F4 AltAz Telescope with servo drive system

I am selling my 20 inch F4 Telescope with servo drive system (Sidereal Technology system). This has not been used for some time and is to be replaced with a larger telescope at a later date.

The optics are Norman Oldham and have been re-coated (Hi-Lux) a few years ago and in good condition.

The Telescope and drive will need some TLC to bring it back to working order. I will be able to assist in this remotely if required. It would cost significantly more than advertised.

A lot more can be seen here:-

http://datscope.wikispaces.com/20+inch+F4+Telescope+design+and+construction

Buyer collects only and will need a medium sized van.

Alternatively the optics alone are for sale for 2000 (primary and flat)

Celestron RASA 11" f/2.2 OTA + accessories -- REDUCED

Hello,

I'm selling a Celestron RASA 11" F/2.2 astrograph, with the following accessories:
+ Original T2 and M48 adapters (55mm back focus)
+ AstroZap dew shield a must for using a flat panel
+ Kendrick dew heater band
+ Starizona MicroTouch focuser motor and controller
+ 3D-printed cable guide for avoiding extra diffraction spikes

I have been very satisfied with the scope's optical performance, the speed is just unbelievable. But since we completed our observatory automation project this summer I need to move to a more remote-friendly setup.

Due to an unfortunate mishap with the corrector plate the scope had to visit Celestron's factory (08/2017), where it has been cleaned, regreased and collimated so the optics are in a pristine condition. Or better, since the scope has not been bounced around in retailers' warehouses :-). It has not been used since. There are small signs of use in the lower dovetail and a couple of minor dings in the tube paint (see pictures).

I've been using the scope for two seasons now so if you have concerns or questions I should have the answer for you. The first doubt everyone has "but the camera blocks so much of the aperture!!", which I consider a moot point this is not a planetary instrument. The total obstruction is still much less than with many other high-end astrographs. To avoid extra diffraction spikes from the camera I used a 3D-printed aperture mask on top of my camera (QSI690). If you tell me your camera dimensions I can print one for you, too.

High-res pictures of the scope and accessories are available here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/60049625@N03/iT4r0Q and you can find plenty of images taken with this scope from my astrobin account: http://astrobin.com/users/vehnae/

The scope and the accessories retail for about 4700 / 5300 (@ Teleskop-Service), I'm asking for 2950 / 3300 or a sensible offer.

The scope is located in Espoo, Finland about 10km from Helsinki. It would be awesome if you can pick it up personally (ferries run from Stockholm/Tallinn daily), but shipping can of course be arranged for which I have the original packaging.

++ Jari

Takahashi FC 100 DL for sale - **NOW SOLD**

Simply the best optical performance of any telescope I've ever used - and that's a lot in over 45 years owning and using telescopes. Only for sale due to current financial position. If I win the lottery this weekend the ad will be removed!

This was bought from Ian King at Astrofest in February 2015 as an ex-demo telescope. Instead of a serial number engraved on it, it actually has DEMO engraved on it. It also came with the wrong designation around the lens - referring to it as being the f7.4 version, when of course it is one of the f9 limited edition first run. This has never bothered me, in fact I've been proud of its uniqueness, though you may be able to replace it if you really wanted to - personally I wouldn't bother. The focuser is super smooth and optically it is stunning in every respect.

For sale is the optical tube, 2 inch and 1.25 inch fitting, Tak bespoke longer version tube clamp (FAR superior and easier to use than any rings I've ever used), Take 6x30 finder and GEOPTIK high quality soft case.

To buy this new in the UK will cost you 2858 (for as long as dealers have it available) - this is the cheapest I can see it offered at least. And, this does NOT include a case of course. The price of this well proven telescope is 2150 INCLUDING the case.

PLEASE NOTE - I'm afraid I will not post this scope to any destination, the scope must be collected in person from Oakworth, West Yorkshire or it can be collected from Kelling next week.

I may accept a SW Equinox 100ED, or SW 100ED pro in part-ex, but this would be subject to them being in excellent optical and mechanical condition and complete. (possibly a 120ED)

I will add some pictures here as soon as I can, though this may not be until Sunday.

For anyone who wants to try the scope out, it will be available at Kelling from Thursday 21st until Monday 21st September. Please contact me for pitch details. Also please get in touch if you want any more information. Of course, if sold before Thursday the scope will not be available at Kelling.

This scope has also been advertised elsewhere.

Thanks for your interest and sticking with my rather long-winded ad !!

****SPECIAL PRICE - 1990 if deal agreed by Sunday 24th September when I'm at Kelling. This price cannot be guaranteed after this date*****

Stellarvue SV 115 Apo Triplet refractor in new-like condition

Stelarvue 115 APO triplet, in mint condition. Those scopes (115 mm) are now discontinued by Vic Maris (owner of Stellarvue).
Bought the scope in February 2014 for $3195 + 25% toll and shipping & handling from USA to Sweden. Serial number 0197. Zygo Interferometric test report showing a Strehl ratio of .965.
It's been very lightly used, and the reason is that I've gravely overestimated my capacity to do stargazing after my two lovely boys were born. It has been kept in a case, with dust caps on, and I've taken a very good care of it.
No scraps, no blemishes, perfect mechanical and optical condition. It's an excellent top-notch refractor from a renowned company.
Comes with SVF25 focuser, brilliant 9x50 Stellarvue finder (right angle) with base, long Vixen rail, rings and case, as well as all the original documentation.
Will be shipped from Sweden.
Any questions, please ask.
