|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.
[**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)
