Complete Deep Sky Imaging Observatory Setup. (Now Selling Individually)

Well, the time has come. It's with a heavy heart that I have to start the process of selling the observatory. Prices are negotiable within reason, but are based on ~60-65% of new, which is the going rate for astro equipment I'm in no rush to sell but would like the equipment to get used again. Any questions please don't hesitate to post a comment or drop me a message. Thanks for looking.
Details are:

[**SOLD**] Skyshed POD 1-Bay, White. Needs a wash. I may do this sometime this week. Homemade wooden desk fitted into bay.

*Altair Astro Pier. Steel, full of sand. Very solid. £300

[**SOLD**] Skywatcher EQ8 Mount. The only really heavyweight mount you can get for under £5,000. Can easily carry the two scopes I have at once. Includes three main counterweights, and a small counterweight arm system I made up to counterbalance the polar scope (which is pointless and I didn't buy it).

*Various ADM and other manufacturer bars and mounts, including a very good TS guidescope mounting system. £650 altogether but will split depending what you need and what is sold.

*Takahashi Epsilon 180 ED f/2.8 hyperbolic astrograph. One of the fastest widefield astrographs you can get. This scope has served me very well for 5 years. Takes some fine tuning to make it sing, but once it does it behaves itself very well for a reflector. Together with Parallax tube rings and Moonlite motorised focuser (together with original manual focuser) and Astrozap dew shield. £3,250

*Altair astro 60mm finderscope. Good finderscope that can also be used as a guidescope. Homemade aluminium mount. £110

*Skywatcher Startravel 80mm refractor. Just the scope and tube rings. £50

[**SOLD**] Starlight Xpress Lodestar X2 Mono Camera. Excellent guide camera. Very capable solar system camera, too.

*Starlight Xpress Trius X-35 Mono Camera. Fantastic 35mm format camera. Very good cooling system, field flattener built-in. Including homemade window heater to combat condensation. £2,470
Starlight Xpress USB Filterwheel. 5-position filterwheel containing Baader LRGBC 50mm round filters. £455. £2,700 ono for both.

*Astrodon 3nm HA 50mm round filter. The narrowest of narrowband filters, 3nm gives you a fighting chance to image even in fairly light-polluted skies. Works very well with f/2.8 scope. £650

*Celestron 9.25 XLT Schmidt Cassegrain. One of the most popular SCTs around...for a reason. Very effective scope for solar system viewing and imaging. Not as impressive as the C11, but a lot more portable! Comes with original Vixen dovetail,
and ADM Losmandy plate and guidescope rail. £1,000.

[**NO LONGER AVAILABLE**] Desktop PC. I can give the spec to anybody interested, but it runs the entire observatory system very well. Windows 7/64, dual monitor.

(Note that the pink hue of the anodised black elements is due to the camera's extended red sensitivity, and the anodising is mostly still nice and black - the equipment is kept under a mylar sheet when not in use for this reason)

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

The telescope is in Poznan in Poland. I can drive to Rotterdam to meet a buyer and finalize transaction at the spot. Beforehand, however, prepayment of 300 pounds is necessary to make a deal serious - I don't want to come to NL and get a phone call that somebody has changed his mind ;) You can reach me on viber or whatsapp 0048 504 012 570 or orome4@gmail.com

Parallax/Zambuto 14.5" f5 ota. Custom made, hardly used. PRICE REDUCTION

Made in 2014 for an Italian astronomer
I imported this from Italy a few months ago, but it is, sadly, just too big for my dome. Now is your chance to own a bespoke ota ready for mounting onto a substantial base.

You could mount this as a very fine Dobsonian if alt-az motion is your preference.

DETAILS;
Optics by Carl Zambuto 14.5" f5.
Secondary by Ostahowski; 1/30th wave 2.6" for 18% central obstruction
Support cell on 9 points
Rear cooling fan
Fans on the side for push-pull action to remove the boundary layer of air above the primary
Handles on the tube for rotation within the PARALLAX rings, which are felt lined.
Moonlite focuser 2.5" stepper motor control with manual control as well
Tube internally flocked and insulated
Weight is about 80lbs

HARDLY USED BY ME, only to find out that it won't fit in my dome!
Very good condition throughout

Original retail price was $9500

The waiting time for a Zambuto mirror is about 12/16 months.

Asking £3150.
Mount not included in this sale.

Collect only from FARNHAM, Surrey

Avalon Linear Fast Reverse

Greetings,

I have come to the conclusion that I should sell my Avalon Linear Fast Reverse.
My setup is changing, so the Avalon Linear will have to be replaced - possibly with a Paramount.

The mount has always been kept in an Observatory, now indoors in London with only some very occasional use.

*Pictures on request*

The mount:
2013 version with Synscan.
No Tripod

Additional:
-2 Counter weights
-Adapter

Optional:
Extender for Avalon T-POD - this retails at £240
http://www.iankingimaging.com/show_product.php?id=1593
If interested we can find a compromise.

Payments:
Insured Postage: £70. ( I will pay the excess )
Payment via Bank transfer either on collection or prior.
If the buyer prefers Paypal, he will have to pay the associated fee.

I'm open to swap the mount with a Paramount with arrangements.

More information about the Avalon Linear:

Thank you for your interest,
Good luck

ASTRO-PHYSICS SUPERPLANETARY EYEPIECES - 2 matched sets

For sale here are two matched sets of AP Super-Planetary eyepieces in mint showroom condition. These are very rare in the UK.

Interested buyers will know all about them and there is plenty about them online and in books about choosing specialist eyepieces.

The set consists of 2x12mm, 2x10mm, 2x8mm, 2x6mm, 2x5mm, so 10 eyepieces in total.

The eyepieces look unused (most are) and the optics have never been touched.

All come complete with their original black end-caps, sealed in their original re-sealable plastic bags and contained within their original white, labelled boxes - all of which are in spotless and unmarked condition. It would not be possible to find a better set.

Any interested buyers please email me for photos which I will be very happy to take as you request.

Thanks for looking.

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*****

SOLD: THANKS PETER
For the SERIOUS VISUAL OBSERVER: Obsession 18" Dobsonian reflector, encoders and Argo Navis DSC, equatorial


Having moved into astro-imaging, I am not making much use of my visual observing gear. So, for sale in good condition:

- Obsession 18" f4.5 Dobsonian reflector
- encoders and Argo Navis DSC computer
- Osypowski wood single axis equatorial platform (needs new battery)

The scope was made for me in 2000. It shows its age/usage in a few scratches to the woodwork but mechanically and optically remains in very good condition. The mirrors in particular are pristine. The encoders and Argo Navis give the scope a powerful push-to capability. The equatorial platform was made for me at the same time as the scope. With a new battery pack, it enables RA tracking so you can observe without having to nudge the scope.

The blurb on the Obsession website is not exaggerated. This scope is serious visual fun. It needs a garage or shed/obsy for storage, from which you can easily wheel it out when you want to use it.

The overall package retails now at c £10,000 so no offers please.

Inspection welcome (I'm about 5 miles from both M1/A1). Buyer collects. Payment by Paypal.
