Variety of Astro Equipment ALL SOLD was created by lunartic_old

Hi all

Taking my astronomy in a completely different direction, therefore, I'm selling my astronomy gear. I am always very careful with my gear, scope and eyepieces are always stored in protective cases when not in use. Smaller items can be posted, at the buyer's cost, larger items will be collection.

1. William Optics 110mm Megrez ED doublet, f/5.59. It comes with a rotatable focuser, with a 1:10 fine tuning option. Included in the price is a William Optics RDF, 2" Antares dielectric diagonal, CNC rings, dovetail plate and protective aluminium case. I have used this scope purely for visual observing, it's fast focal length this is also an excellent imaging scope. There are small marks on the dew shield, nothing serious.

Asking price: €700

2. Skywatcher AZ-4 alt-az mount. This is an incredibly stable mount, sitting on 1.75" adjustable stainless steel legs, a spreader plate adds to the stability and provides storage spaces for eyepieces. There are a few minor marks from usage. New this retail for €255

Asking price: €160

3. 22mm Vixen LVW. 20mm Lanthanum glass, eye relief, 65 degree field of view,a solid eyepiece, all metal construction with a rubber grip for ease of handling. New, these go for £185 in the UK.

Asking price: €150 SOLD

4. 11mm Type 6 Nagler. What can I say, the legendary 82 degree field of view to get lost in, 12mm eye relief. New, they cost €269.

Asking price: €170 SOLD

5. 7mm Type I Nagler. An older eyepiece, this is still a wonderful performer, 82 degree field of view, 10mm eye relief, this is not the smooth side type 1, it comes with a rubber grip.

Asking price: €100 SOLD

6. 2.5X Televue Powermate. The great advantage of the Powermate is that there is no loss in the field of view, with a Nagler you still get the 82 degree field of view. New they cost £162.

Asking price: €130 SOLD

All of the above eyepieces comes with boxes and caps and are 1.25".

Images can be provided upon request, all inspections are more than welcome.

I can do a deal for more than one item purchased.

Thanks everyone.

Paul

I forgot to add that the scope also comes with a Bathinov mask and a home made solar filter.

Paul,
I'm interested in your powermate.
I have a couple of naglers for sale also.
Do you think we could work out some sort of trade?

Hi all

With regards to the scope, I am open to offers, the RDF alone costs €80, the diagonal around €100.
