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.
Super-high transmission coating (STM Coating) on all air to glass surfaces.
Resolving Power (Dawes Limit) 1.45 arc seconds
Visual Limiting Magnitude 12.2 maximum
Weight approx. 3kg, OTA length with dewshield retracted, 39cm.
Precision CNC machined components and tube made from light, tough aluminium alloy with matte powder coat and hard anodising.
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.
Teflon tension-adjustment screws and Teflon collet ensure focuser rotates smoothly.
Self-Centering 2" to 1.25" reducer with brass compression rings included.
Front aluminium push-fit lens cap, rear plastic 1.25" dust plug.
Standard 1.75" dovetail bar with stainless steel M6 cap-head screws included.

Astro-Physics 180mm F9 EDT Starfire Refractor

For sale: one of the rarest of refractors - Astro-Physics 180mm F9 EDT Starfire Refractor. See http://www.company7.com/astrophy/refractors/180sf.html for further details. The views through this telescope are amazing. It comes with tube rings and a custom made case. I have used this refractor for visual work only - I am not into astrophotography. We have downsized and and sadly do not have space for this beauty.There are a couple of small marks on the coatings which were there when I bought it 10+ years ago but have no effect on its visual performance.I have tried to show these on the photos.
You are welcome and indeed encouraged to inspect the scope before buying. I would require a bank transfer or a cleared cheque before releasing the telescope.

Meade 14" LX200-ACF has 14" diameter f/10 ACF optics brand new and boxed

A great opportunity to own a fantastic telescope - a Meade 14" ACF - brand new and boxed - the owner never opened the boxes due to a significant health issue - hence a sale price of 5,750 (new price 9,500) - the telescope is being sold off as part of his estate. It is approximately two years old (purchased Jan 2016) but obviously unused and pristine.

Meade's LX200-ACF brings Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics within reach of aspiring astronomers everywhere. Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system like the Ritchey-Chretien (RC), including NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use.

The LX200-ACF includes all the field-proven features of the LX200 including GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Oversized Primary Mirror, SmartDrive, Smart Mount, AutoStar II and more. Plus, the LX200-ACF comes with observatory-class optics and a Series 4000 26mm Plssl eyepiece. The LX200-ACF. It's the biggest news in astronomy since, well, the LX200.

This 14" LX200-ACF has 14" diameter f/10 ACF optics (focal length 3556mm) and Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum image brightness and contrast. Features the advanced LX200 AutoStar II computer system with 145,000 object library, multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability with sub arc-minute pointing accuracy, and Meade SmartDrive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction.

AP130 Starfire EDF from Astro-Physics

For Sale - AP130 Starfire EDF

Considering sale of my fine refractor - Astro-Physics AP130 Starfire EDF. These masterpieces of Roland Christen do not require additional introduction, they are the standard other scopes are judged against ;-)

In summary (and what is included):
- 130mm clear glass aperture in great shape
- f/6 780mm FL (with optional flattener ca 820mm f/6.3)
- AP greaseless 2,7 inch focuser with Feather touch micro-focuser
- 2" and 1,25" output adapters
- pair of mounting rings (few ANSI mounting bolts included)
- finder scope shoe attached
- Retracted length ca 720mm
- OTA weight ca 7kg
- Original transport box from AP

Off course scope is used but very well cared for, I am a second owner, imported from US few years ago. Optics, cosmetics and mechanics in great shape, lens well collimated. Some very slight signs of use.

Roland does not issue certificates for optics, but all lenses are hand figured and star and ZYGO tested by him and the reputed "minimum" standard is 1/8 to 1/10 lambda. Image quality and contrast are legendary. Also, both focuser and lens cell are extremely well engineered, it had no trouble working below -20C (try that with Taks).

For comparison only, on one of the images it is shown aside my FSQ106N (now sold). Amazingly compact and lightweight scope for the size and solid build. Sweet spot for visual and great imaging platform (optional flattener needed for chips APS and above, will illuminate more than full frame chips with perfect stars to corners).

Feels at home on AP400 GTO, Mach-1 or Tak EM-200. Focuser handles flattener, OAG and STL camera with ease.

Mounts, finders, dovetails and other accessories visible on images and not included in this sale, only items listed in the summary.

My price is 5200 pounds and that would include shipping to continental Europe or UK, however I am not sure on the actual value of available insurance, so the insurance may be extra.

Thanks for looking

Pawel

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 typically >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 have stopped supplying the 100/F8, 105/F6.2, 115/F7 and 123/F6 o 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 don't have a fixed pier or observatory setup and I think 4" about as large as I want to go.

The scope is very, very good condition. Comes with 3" Feathertouch Focuser 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

Back in 2011 it cost just over 6000; would accept 3500 ono
As it is a large heavy item I suggest the buyer should collect. The 'scope is in good condition ,inspection and or demo welcome.

Lunt LS80THa/B1800 80mm H-Alpha Telescope REDUCED & will now post UK Wide.

Lunt LS80THa/B1800 80mm H-Alpha Telescope Crayford Focuser, Pressure Tuner.

Offered at reduced price, and will now POST to UK address (see details in edited section below. Small additional information added to the main text too)
As the Sun gets quieter, you need a Hydrogen Alpha scope, and the perfect one, in my opinion, is the Lunt 80mm!
(Please note, all photos can be seen by copying and pasting the link below, which takes you to my blog)
It's a big heavy scope, but still completely portable, and with the 1800 blocking filter the FOV is enough to see and image the Sun's full disc. See the many online reviews if not familiar with it.
With a 2X or 3X Barlow, and the superb light gathering power of an 80mm, very close up observation and imaging is easy. I'll attach some links below of some of my animations so you can see what it can do.
I've had the scope from new, bought from Widescreen Centre, London, in 2014, had a brief spell of using it for a few months then stopped for ages, then another year or so of proper use. It's been used exclusively by me, from my back garden, and stored in its case in my bedroom at all times. Basically it's a mint scope, but if you want to look closely there are a couple of v small points: 1) the viewer on top had 2 screw originally. One holds it firmly in place so over time I lost the other screw. 2) On the side, the internal bush rubs against the draw tube and lifts off the thin surface coating in a line (see photo). This is completely cosmetic and happens from Day 1 the scope is used. 3) I tightened a small screw on the base and it split the thin piece of plastic it was fitted into. This is very small, and again cosmetic, and the part is completely rigid. (see photo too).4) There are screw marks where the mount grips the rails on the base of the scope (photo). As you can see in the photo, the main objective is in perfect condition, with no scratches or marks.
You can buy this scope now for 4800, or save 1700 by getting it here for 3100 ono. Collection /viewing welcome from St Neots Cambridgeshire, or I visit Hatfield, Herts every couple of weeks, and Rugby Warwickshire too, so any reasonable point along those routes is fine too. I prefer collection /meet up, but can post to UK address. The metal case is extremely rigid, and the scope is completely protected by the interior foam. Complete package is around 10kg. I will also add external packaging to the outside of the case, adding perhaps another 1kg. Hermes offers a very reasonable Tracked and Signed for option for 20. The only problem is that the maximum insurance is 300, as far as I can tell, so we might have to look at another delivery option, or do some kind of additional insurance. I'm open to suggestions. I'm 35 minutes away from London Kings Cross on the train, so happy to deliver there. I'm also happy to deliver /meet up within say a 100 mile radius if you cover petrol and say 20 extra.

I originally offered the mount here too, but that's now sold. The imaging equipment will be listed separately, or can be added into this sale. reasonable offers invited, if buying the scope.
Any questions please ask or call to discuss any aspect of this any time. Iain. Links to a couple of my animations below. Also see photos which are on the page link below. Thanks for looking.

For sale - tried and trusted STL11k Mono with add-on useful accessories

Hi

Now I have for sale tried and trusted worhorse CCD camera - SBIG STL11000 Mono.

This camera does not need any introduction, just a brief summary:
- 11M pixels
- pixels 9x9um

Included SBIG standard box:
- SBIG STL11000 mono camera with build in 5 position filter wheel
- installed LRGBHa filter set from Optec USA (included boxes and documentation of transition curves)
- 2" nosepeice and front thread-on cover
- SBIG "brick" power supply with European plug (will take any voltage, be it 230V in mainlands Europe, 240V in UK as well as 110V in US)
- both handles (one installed currently, may need to be removed for transport)
- large Pelican case as shipped from SBIG
- all included small items like screws to attach onmounted filters
- I probably have somewhere original CCD disc from SBIG and a printed manual. In any case, up-to-date drivers can be directly downloaded from SBIG pages for use with 3rd party software like Maxim DL.

Add-on 1:
- power cable extension approx 3m, self made from high duty cable
- power adapter - allowing use of any standard DC power supply with 5.5/2.1mm plug center positive - much increasing power options
- portable power supply - 230/240V AC in, 12V 8A DC out, 1/3 of the "brick" weight, perfect for travel
- I can solder a DC power cable with wither battery clips or cigarette lighter plug for field use

Add-on 2:

Starlight-express large OAG unit (50mm clear aperture), custom made adapter for attaching the OAG to SBIG camera and your choice of 2 custom made adapters:
- one with M72x1mm Takahashi threads, with 84mm total backfocus, matching Takahashi FSQ (sale in another add) or TOA130/150 reducers or flatteners,
- another one with flat flange and 86,4mm backfocus, matching directly to Astro-Physics 2,7" and TEC flatteners.
This set allows you to directly attach the camera to Tak, AP or TEC scopes and have a sensitive guide camera (Lodestar) mounted in front of the filters. I had zero situations when a suitable guide star would not be available in any random star field.

Add-on 3:
Custom made closed loop water cooling system. This system consists of 1l water tank with small immersible pump, central unit with large PC water cooling radiator and a set of 2 large push-pull 12V fans and red backlit water temperature meter and a set of ultra-flexible, silicone based tubing rated down to -70C. All connectiors are non-spilling quick-release and one additional connector is added for ease of draining water off.

This water cooling system runs from 12V, will not spill water even if tipped (not advisable as the pump could itake air and stop pumping water, though) and allows easy additional -10C delta. Perfect for operation on clear hot summer nights, off course not to be used below freezing. It actually saved me one imaging trip to a dark location when the built-in fan failed, after switching the water cooling the camera continued to maintain temperature set w/o any issue (w/o water cooling would immediately undergo thermal runaway).

Camera is used but in good working order, the dessicant plug would probably need to be baked in some time (standard SBIG procedue).

SX Lodestar and parts of AP scope visible on some of the images are not part of this deal.

My price is 3060 Pounds / 3500 Euro shipped in Europe. Would ship in 2 boxes. I prefer bank funds transfer, for PP please add 3% of PP fee. I have a perfectly matching Takahashi FSQ106N in another add, would offer discount on both if purchased together.

Thanks for looking.

Pawel

18" f/4.3 David Lukehurst classic wooden Dobsonian

18 f/4.3 David Lukehurst classic wooden Dobsonian (black) with 2" rack and pinion focuser, wheelbarrow handles, finder, wooden primary mirror cover and Telegizmos scope cover, the latter purchased separately but I've included it with the scope. This is a perfect scope for visual deep sky observing.
It has aluminium truss poles, a light wooden upper tube assembly and can be disassembled into a cube for storage and transport. The wheelbarrow handles attach to the side of the rocker box, making it easy to move around.
I bought the scope new from David Lukehurst in 2011 but since 2014 circumstances have meant I am not able to use it as much as I'd like. However, the mirror may require re-coating.
I'd like 2800 for the telescope, but I'd consider a reasonable offer for it.
I am on the Isle of Wight but would be able to get the telescope to Southampton, Portsmouth or Lymington ferry terminals.

M-UNO Fast Reverse Mount with Synscan

I have used this mount with EQMOD and Stellarium so the Synscan has had very little use (ver 3.27). Also included is an Avalon 80mm saddle plate extender (for smaller refractors), Avalon polar scope illuminator, mount and Synscan user manuals. Bought Nov 2014 retailing at 3,900, will sell for 2,000 or very near offer. Would prefer buyer collects, though willing to travel 30-40 miles. Preferred payment method would be cash or bank transfer. When housed outside in my observatory I have had a dehumidifier running 24/7 when not in use. The mount baseplate fits an Altair Astro pier (not sure if it fits other mounts?). The mount has not been used for over a year and has been housed in its original box and sat under the stairs in my house. I set the mount up recently (05/02/2018) to ensure that all is working well. Apparently, the max carrying weight for imaging is 20kgs (25kgs for observing)and it will take a Celestron C11 though I have only ever used it with Tak FSQ85. I imagine anyone interested in the mount will likely do their own research . Reason for sale is that I will be moving in with my partner, who has a flat, and wont have room for the mount (or my Skyshed Pod/pier!).

Takahashi Mewlon 210 (New other)

After swaying backwards and forwards on this Ive 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 cant justify holding onto this any longer as I simply havent had the time to use it.

Boxed and papers. As always Id 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

Sensible offers only, if you know your scopes then you know this is a beauty.

Many thanks for taking a look,
