  1. Atik Titan mono CCD. Due to clearing out and upgrading I am selling my Atik Titan mono CCD. This CCD camera is ideally suited to deep sky photography but also has a high speed mode of 15 frames/sec at 16 bit for planetary and solar system imaging. It does not come with the original box, but it does have the original certificate, manual and CD. As well as both a USB and power lead. Would ideally suit someone starting out in the world of mono imaging. These retail currently at £581, so way less than half price. Prefer local collection but will not rule out UK postage at buyers risk. System requirements: Pentium III PC with 128 MB of RAM, Windows XP / Vista / Win7, CD-ROM drive and USB 2.0 port Sensor type: Sony ICX424 Horizontal Pixels: 659 pixels Vertical pixels: 494 pixels Pixel size: 7.4 µM x 7.4 µM Conversion: 16 bit Reading noise: 5 e- Interface: USB Power: 12v DC 0.55A Cooling: Thermoelectric, T = -20 ° C max. Weight: 350g Autoguide port: ST-4 compatible I have included an image of the Ring Nebula taken with this camera £200 SOLD Edited 12 hours ago by Soupy
  2. I do Steve, drop me a PM if you are interested. cheers Soupy
  3. Solid Metal Pier and Fork Mount. This unit was installed in a home observatory until a few years ago. It was my intention to reinstall it into a new setting but I never got round to it. It is now time to let it go to someone who can do something with it. This is an incredibly heavy pier and fork mount with wedge built in. Perfectly suited to Astroimaging. It has motors for driving the mount and I will throw in a Celestron handset. The last time this was installed it was all working but it will need someone who is quite proficient in electrics to get this installed and working to its full potential again. It did house a 12" Starhopper in its last life so is capable of carrying a hefty scope. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Due to the weight this will need 2 people for the lift and is for collection only £150 SOLD

  5. Aye Chris, I must admit I am still a bit reticent about it all, but all good things must come to an end, and it's the right time to move them onto someone else who will enjoy them. Hopefully the sale goes through OK as they are being viewed on Friday.
  6. Sorry chaps, been so sad to put this on I forgot the price. All resolved now!
  7. Based on twin Helios 6" 150mm Parabolic Newtonian Reflector Telescopes and badged 'Terrascan'. 1.25" Eyepiece Fitting, Right Angle, With Altaz Mount. This is a pair of 150MM Terrascan Binoculars made by Peter Drew. They are six inch Reflector binoculars which Peter made to order at The Astronomy Centre, Todmorden. The binoculars take standard 1.25" eyepieces and come with a pair of each 4mm, 10mm and 20mm plossl EPs as well as a pair of 2x barlow lenses. The eyepieces rotate for easy observing and are fully adjustable. It comes with an altazimuth mount also made by Peter. These perform extremely well and give glorious (almost 3d like) views. Features: Adjustable inter-pupillary separation by rack and pinion. Individual eyepiece focus. I have had these for seven years now and it is time to move them on. The mirrors and prisms will need cleaning down, but other than they are in very good nick. This is also advertised on Astro Buy Sell oops forgot price! sorry, looking for £325 ovno. SOLD
  8. some images of the 12" for those enquiring minds.
  9. no problem Wormix, I'm struggling to find a box that might keep it safe in transit at the minute anyway.
  10. Sploo, I used to use one of the ST80s for a guide scope on my 200pds, so makes perfect sense. I live near jnt41 of the M1.
  11. yeah I'm sure i could find a box for it, not sure on price though.
  12. Having a clear out of some OTA's etc. I don't use. drop me a line if any interest you. I am having a good clear out as looking to upgrade on my equipment. I have had this stuff for a while as I was looking into an big observatory project, but unfortunately not to be, so have now decided to sell these. The OTA's were originally bought for mirror sets, so they do not come with mounts and there are a few dents and scratches on the tubes but apart from a need of a clean the mirrors are in reasonably good nick. (Edit, the Orion does have a small scratch) I will try to post some pics as soon as possible. Celestron 12" £150 SOLD Skywatcher 10" £110 SOLD Orion europa 200 £80 SOLD Skywatcher ST80 £50 SOLD Orion ST80 £50 SOLD Series 500 6.5mm plossl EP £12 SALE PENDING Kellner 25mm £12 Super 25 wide angle LER £12 Super 10mm £12 Fotdiox Olympus 4/3 T2 adapter £5 (FYI. I have also listed these items on AstroBuysell)
  13. Cheers Damian. Aye Messier never had the highways agency to deal with so no excuse! Lol
  14. Yes John, I've browsed the moon a few times in passing and at outreach events, but always viewed it as a hindrance due to imaging. However just having a visual night it certainly stole the show!
  15. We were at the visitors car park Alan, it's a lovely area through the day and dark as a cave at night so usually very good. Shame they decided to upgrade the roads on the only clear night we have had for ages!
