    I've seen people actually selling empty eyepiece boxes for the premium brands such as Takahashi etc :rolleyes2:

    I have a few eyepieces that don't have the original box but they are in great condition which is all that really matters :smiley:

    Some of the Explore Scientific and Meade eyepiece boxes are huge - they do create a storage issue themselves :rolleyes2:

    That's exactly the problem I had. A whole shelf of boxes take up lots of room!!! Lol

  2. I have for sale here two Borg scopes in used but excellent order.

    The 90FL apo comes with a Televue diagonal and is set up for visual use. It has a vixen dovetail bar mounted to the tube rings. Optics are excellent and I have had some lovely views of lunar and planetary objects. £1050


    77 ED II Now SOLD

    The 77ED II apo comes with a super f4 reducer and two adaptors. 5005 for Canon eos and 7920 for m48 ccd camera attachment. It has a 2 inch filter pull out so you can change filters easy and an ADM vixen dovetail. Excellent condition. This one is £650

    77 ED Now SOLD


    Postage would be by fully insured post at £15 per scope for security.

    Bank transfer or PayPal with fees paid accepted or collection. Thanks.

  4. A superb, brand new type 5 Nagler in 31mm.

    Not used at all, factory end caps present but no box. I keep my Ep's in a flight case so totally unmarked.

    Some money off for no box!!

    PayPal with fees paid or transfer. Would prefer to sell in UK please. Postage by special next day RM would be a £6 contribution. I pay rest.

    Lovely item needs using. Breaking my heart to sell so look after it ! 😄

    I'll be selling whole set of Nagler soon so watch out for them!

    A mate of mine that has Camtech cameras always said a box is worth 10-20 quid, well that would be on a fairly pricey item like a Canon body. Personnally I would say a tenner however if it were a TeleVue I wanted I wouldn't care if it had a box or not, all of mine do have boxes but then that just luck. Oh and many were bought new, the boxes are in big box in the barn.

    Also looking at what you have offered so far I am sure they are in top condition.



    Thanks Alan

  6. Hi all. I have for sale my Celestron C11 scope, with Baader Click lock holder and finder shoe. Comes with everything from new, finder, ep etc but no longer have box.

    This scope has been up on a mount but not used outside yet. Selling because the Edge 8 is easier for me to store And use.

    Excellent condition.  Web page says:

    • 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical Tube Assembly
    • Aluminum Optical Tube
    • Celestron's premium StarBright XLT coatings
    • 2800 mm focal length (f/10)
    • 40 mm eyepiece included (70x)
    • Visual back allows for use with 1.25" accessories
    • 9x50 finderscope to help accurately find objects
    • Star diagonal provides more comfortable viewing position when observing objects that are high in the sky

    No box so collection from Cumbria or I can deliver by arrangement.

    Scope has the upgraded ADM Losmandy Dovetail and spacers. A lovely looking scope. Any questions just ask away!!

    Mount in pics not included but may be for sale 😄










  7. Morning all. I store my ep's in padded flight cases. Does anyone have a rough idea when selling something like a Tele Vue Ethos etc how much value may be lost by having no box? Is anyone really really bothered about no box as long as condition is good?

    Thanks. David

    I don't play games like that, how long do you think I would remain a Mod, tempting though. Dave is selling some beautiful gear if I were in England I would buy the scope, but something like I would never risk shipping, if something went wrong, it is not like it is FLO sending a scope out to me.


    Thanks Alan for the comments, hopefully people will buy them! Steady progress!
