  1. For Sale:- Phil Dyer Remote Colour Astro Video Camera For a happy three years I had a very keen interest in astronomy but sadly the muse has left me and other interests now have my attention. I have gradually been selling off my astronomy kit and it is now the turn of my video astronomy system to go. My aim was to have a complete remote system enabling me to operate my 80mm refractor from the warmth of the “office” with the scope outside on the balcony. I eventually achieved this objective with a Celestron Goto mount, Stellarium software and the remote control Phil Dyer Astro video camera system. For further information on the camera system visit:- www.astrophoto.co.uk After successfully setting up the system it was not used a great deal as a major refurbishment of the “office” created a lengthy period of disruption after which I found I had lost interest. The camera system was working properly at the time of decommissioning and I presume is in full working order. The kit for sale is as per the original Phil Dyer bundle as purchased with all the necessary cables, controls, software and instructions (plus a couple of extra documents on video astronomy). I would point out that the camera does have a velcro strip on the top of the camera body which did at one stage have a Telrad finder to it. I am sure the strip could be safely removed if so wished. My connection labels still attached but could be removed. Now would be a good time to set up your own remote viewing system in readiness for the upcoming “season” The original cost was £199.00 and I am looking for £135 Postage will be based on actual courier cost and will vary if insurance is required – initial estimates look to be between £3 and £6 If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
  2. Surprising !! - Little interest!! So I am currently withdrawing the advertisement. I will need to give the sale further consideration but may split and offer the electronic focusser and other Orion ED80 accessories separately Thanks for looking.
  3. Price reduction to £35 plus postage - or open to offers!!
  4. UPDATE!!!! I have just run a daylight test using my Skywatcher Equinox 66 Refractor - the camera works fine and shows a good image of views across the valley BUT I think that the monitor screen may be on the way out as it does show several smallish darkish circular blemishes (max approx 1/8")The camera could, of course be connected to a TV or perhaps laptop computer monitor. I am now open to offers for the Kit.
  5. For sale – an interesting beginning to video astronomy!! Video Astronomy Kit Collectors Item?? This is a neat, self contained kit for looking at the night sky on a small 5” black and white monitor using your telescope. Place the camera into the eyepiece holder, connect the camera to the monitor and plug the monitor into the mains adapter or car cigarette lighter socket. Adjust the focus on the telescope and the brightness / contrast controls on the monitor and you should be able to observe celestial objects on the monitor. It isn't Hubble Telescope quality but I had some fun with it before moving onto more sophisticated kit. There are no instructions with it but it is fairly intuitive. It all comes with a handy carrying case. I am seeking £25 ono. plus postage for this piece of astro photography history. Postage:- approx. £6.50
