Hi Guys,

I have done a sweep on all of my Astronomy Gear and I have decided that certain items need a new home, as they are simply not getting any use at the moment.

Meade ETX125 OTA on LXD74 Mount + Extras

This Meade ETX125 Scope has pristine optics and been upgraded with Wegat Optical Visual Back which is a HUGE improvement over the original plastic setup. It also has a really nice William optics 10:1 Dual Speed SCT Focuser which eliminates any image shift.

The OTA is Fully Flocked, Baffle Tube Re-greased and comes with Original Metal Threaded Lens Cap, ScopeStuff Tube Rings and Felt, a Quality ADM Vixen dovetail Bar, an Astrozap Dewshield and a StarSharp Bahatinov Focusing Mask.

All in all a very nice Specimen that will give wonderful Lunar and planetary views and also is excellent for planetary imaging. I'll be sad to see this one go, but I also have a Meade 7" LX Maksutov so I cant justify keeping it.

The LXD75 GEM Mount has been very trusty & reliable platform for me.

Included is the Mount Head, Tripod .. Autostar Hand Controller Upgraded to the latest Firmware Version. 5KG Counterweight, Hand Controller Holder, 8 Cell Battery Pack and also the Azimuth Bolts have been upgraded. The Mounts Goto are spot on and tracking is excellent. Can be used for Autoguiding with the 509 Cable or via the Meade APM Module. Also comes with LXD75/55 User guide and the LXD Hypertune DVD from Deep Space Products.

I'm asking €220 for the Mount and €350 for the ETX125 OTA and Extras and I'm open to offers on the entire setup.

Skywatcher Evostar 120 Refractor with upgraded Zero Image Shift Micro-Focuser

This is the Older Blue Tube Version and it is still a very nice 5" Achromat for Lunar Planetary and Deep Sky Observing. The Optics are in excellent condition and the lens cell can be collimated with Push/Pull Screws.This scope has also been upgraded with a 3" Zero Image Shift Rack and Pinion Focuser from Byultong Optics in Korea. this is a Really Nice Focuser and would also work as an excellent upgrade for higher end scopes. I don't have the original focuser for the Skywatcher so that's why I'm selling as is.

Looking for €250.
