  1. Sorry, but it has, indeed, been sold. Paid for and sent out today. Cheers folks
  2. Hi Steve Just a quick update, with a few pictures. I have most, but not all, of the original packaging. Equipment-wise - everything that should be included IS included. The red dot finder has never been used. If you're still interested, it will all be packed securely. As a bonus, there is a brand new power pack, with the correct power output included. You'll have to find a way of making it waterproof, but, "hey, it's free" Cheers Andy
  3. Now Sold!!! ....As per title. Purchased from FLO earlier this year, and in excellent condition. All complete, and I'm pretty sure I have the original packaging still in the loft. Only reason for sale is that the council have upgraded their street-lighting, whose dazzling beams now pollute our back yard. I can barely see anything now, short of going on a field trip. Until I move house, astronomy is off the menu. £265 PS: I'll be away for a few days as from Wednesday, so may be unavailable. Please bear with me. Oh, and I'll get a photo up as soon as I get a chance.
  4. Thanks for the offer, but I’ll pass, thanks. I’ve still got my observing covered with other gear.
  5. Yes, still up for grabs...
  6. Purchased earlier this year from FLO. All original, and very little use. Everything that is supposed to be included is included. Finder Scope has not been used as I also bought a RACI (not included, nor for sale) at the same time. Also included is a Cheshire Deluxe Collimator, also purchased from FLO. I used a Telrad with the dob', so there is a Telrad base that will be left in place so as to avoid damaging the scope in any way. Please note that it is ONLY the Telrad BASE that will be left attached, and not the Telrad itself, as I use that on another scope. I'll post pictures as soon as I get a chance to take some. Maybe tomorrow morning. Rest assured that it is in A1 condition. I look after my stuff. Collection only due to weight, size, and fragility. £275 from DY10 area NOW SOLD!!
  7. Oh, and one counter-weight isn't shown 'cos it's still in the box, as I wouldn't have been needing it with the 'scope I intended to buy......
  8. Still for sale, and finally added photos to original post...................
  9. Through no fault of his own, Bigwings is no longer in a position to buy. Consequently, the mount is now back up for sale.....
  10. Thanks all for your input. This is now provisionally sold to Bigwings
  11. SW AZ-EQ5 GT Goto mount. Absolutely as new. Bought from FLO a short while back. Also includes the optional Skywatcher Polar Scope, also as new. Finally, there is a portable power pack in the form of a Phaze 4-in-1 Jump Starter, again as new. I purchased these items to form the basis of an astrophotography setup, but then got cold feet. Consequently, I never got around to purchasing the camera, and ap scope. I’m going to stick to observing. Due to the weight and bulk of the setup, it would be collection only. Happy to drive a short distance to help facilitate a sale. Asking £750. I’m based in Kidderminster DY10 area. I’ll take some pics tomorrow, but, rest assured, everything is A1. I sell under the name of Bilbosmeggins on eBay, with 100% feedback, so feel free to check. NOW SOLD!!
  12. That's a great quote. Hadn't heard that before, but it instantly reminded me of the inimitable Jerome k. Jerome's utterings on the subject of work.... “I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.” and “I can't sit still and see another man slaving and working. I want to get up and superintend, and walk round with my hands in my pockets, and tell him what to do. It is my energetic nature. I can't help it.” Can't help but be in full agreement of the sentiments
  13. Unless it’s the AZ/EQ5 Mount, in which case it replaces the mini spirit level.
