  2. Hi all, So, time has come to sell my beloved astro gear. With two young daughters and a new job meaning I work shifts, I need to sell this stuff and hopefully buy it all back again whenever I find time in my life to "re-indulge". Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro - Synscan - £700 with accompanying Maplins powern supply (http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/5-in-1-power-station-with-air-compressor-a67hy) . Weights are in good condition, with the odd mark here and there. Good condition throughout. It also has the upgraded Adjustment bolts - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Skywatcher-EQ6-HEQ5-NEQ6-mount-Upgraded-Latitude-Altitude-Adjustment-Bolts-/330984010367?hash=item4d102f327f:g:BK8AAOxyD9JSBCGu Celestron C9.25 - £850 with accompanying dew shield, Padded protective case and Telrad finder . Optics on this one are flawless. Such a beautiful telescope that was always my dream to own I'm so sad to see it go. When we took it to Barr beacon for the Star Gazing Live event a year or two ago, the expressions on peoples faces when they saw the moon and Jupiter through this telescope were amazing. The moon is absolutely breathtaking through it. In addition to these I have a hard flight case, a couple of 2 x barlows, a canon camera attachment and three astron books I'd throw in with the telescope and if anyone wanted it. I also have: Celestron X-Cel LX 18mm eyepiece - £45 Celestron X-Cel LX 18mm eyepiece - £45 If anyone wanted to buy everything, which would obviously be my preference, I'd let the lot go all together for £1,600. As new this stuff is pushing £2,500. I will let this sit for a couple of weeks before considering splitting things up if people wanted to pick at bits. I will leave it to your guys on the SGL a week for first dibs before posting on ebay and astrobuysell. I have lots of good references and have sold and bought loads of times through the site so people can buy with confidence. Any inspection also of course welcome. Thanks guys.
  3. Hi there. Yep. Still have them. Sitting on my desk in front of me right now. My parents live on Walmley Road so I can have them dropped there in the morning for you to collect tomorrow evening or at the weekend if you like? I'll PM you the address.
  4. Hi there, Great stuff. Will confirm tomorrow morning. Sorry for the delay today. Didn't get home before kids went to bed. Anthony.
  5. Hi Dave, I believe I still have them. They're in the cupboard in my daughters room so I can't check this evening, but can have a look tomorrow for you mate. I'm near Spitfire Island by the Fort, Erdington. Thanks.
  6. Hi all, Still got these up for sale. ADM Minidovetail Guidescope Rings - 125mm - £55 Happy to post by whatever method you would like. Just add it to the cost and I'll get it arranged
  7. Hi all, Still downsizing my astro imaging equipment so this is up for sale. Also included is an ADM dovetail in addition to the provided one and a Bahtinov mask. In great over all condition with only the small signs of wear you would attribute to a telescope a few years old. Has absolutely no dents or significant marks on it at all. Optics have no defects or issues whatsoever. If anyone would like to inspect before purchase they are more than welcome. A great scope that has generated some really great images for me over the years. Sadly just sitting unused for the past couple of years so time to go. This is currently on ebay with a buy it now of £350. Will sell to anyone from SGL for £320 to cut out the middle man at ebay. Myhermes quote for this was about £12 payable on top. Happy to use interparcel or whoever you prefer.
  8. Hi there Doug,

    I would imagine recorded would probably cost a fiver?  I'll bubble wrap it and put it in a box for safety.



  9. Totally welcome Rae. Glad you're happy with it. Doug, very sorry for not replying to you. Again, I didn't get a notification you'd posted. I will PM you now.
  10. CLS filter sold. ST80 sold pending payment tomorrow. Guidescope rings sold pending payment.
