  3. Hi All,

    I'm selling my Star Adventurer setup to purchase one of the above mounts.

    Can anyone shed any light on either of these 2 mounts please?

    I'll only be using the mount for AP for the next few years with an Altair Astro Starwave 70ED and Canon EOS760D with a 1 x Field Flattener.


    Cheers all.

  4. Skywatcher 127mm Maksutov Cassegrain. 

    F11.8, 6x30 Finderscope, 

    Synscan Alt/Az GoTo Mount and tripod. 

    Nikon camera T Adaptor, Compass, 1.25" Camera Adapter, 1.25" Light Pollution Filter, 1.25" Moon Filter, Skywatcher 2x Barlow Lens, Celestron 2x Barlow Lens, Vixen NPL 10mm EP, Skywatcher 25mm Plossl, Skywatcher 10mm Plossl. 

    Full working order, hardly been used, AA plug in power pack, mains adapter. Can be seen working. Spotless and well maintained.

    Sadly I don't get to use it but money will be funding a Skywatcher Star Adventurer as I'd get more use from it.

    Ideal setup for a beginner. Scope is a gem on everything I've seen with it.

    £275.00 Worthing, West Sussex

    Can be posted at cost.
