  1. PRICE NOW REDUCED TO £1200. Delivery available around the country, for fuel costs. We are based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire for collection.
  2. This telescope was part of my Father-in-Laws collection, however he passed away at the beginning of last month. So my Mother has asked me to sell the equipment to help cover funeral costs. He was incredibly precious with all his 'toys' (of which there were many!), as such the equipment is all in very good condition. I have been helped identifying all the equipment by kind members of this forum, and for that I am eternally grateful. As you can see from the images below the scope has been 'de-forked' however before collection/delivery we are happy to re-fork it if required. We also have the original packaging the scope cam in so we will be providing that so the equipement may travel safely. Included are; Meade LX90 GPS 10" Telescope Oversize Primary Mirror Rigid Cast Aluminium Fork Mount LX200 Tripod (One screw is damaged but can still be used as seen in images below) Smart Drive Autostar Controller 8x50 Optical Finder 26mm Super Plossl & 90 Degree Diagonal Bahtinov Focusing Mask My father-in-law also built a custom dew/condensation heater for the scope that is included There was also a random box with a load of assorted cables that will come with the scope. If you need any further information please ask, and I will do my best to answer with my very limited knowledge. We have the receipt for this scope and my F-I-L paid £2559 a little over a year ago. PRICE NOW REDUCED TO £1200 I have advertised elsewhere, so please contact me via private message if you are interested. Thanks, Annie If you need any further information please contact us via messages and we will do our best to answer any questions.
  3. Okay so I have a few more bits (I cant believe I am still finding bits, he stashed them everywhere!
  4. Gents, Thank you everyone for the help. I would genuinely up the creek if it hadn't been for the kindness of people of this forum. I know nothing about astronomical gear at all, but as everyone who has bought the gear from me from my late Father-in-law they will attest to the fact that it is all in perfect condition. He kept everything in specific foam hard cases so no damage came to any of it. I have offered collection and even personal delivery by myself for all the items worth any kind of reasonable money, and allowed buyers to test and check it all. I have photos my F-I-L took with this camera to show the quality (taken just a couple of weeks before he passed). I am not here to screw anyone, I am here to sell the equipment to people who can get use out of it for a fair price to pay towards the funeral costs. Thank you everyone for the interest and help. Annie.
  5. Sorry I've been advised £450 is too low a price for this so it will be £550 and I would only accept paypal payments, as it protects me and the buyer against fraud. Thanks.
  6. Hi! Thanks for the message, I would say £550 but would be open to reasonable offers.
  7. Hello Everyone, I know a few of you have seen my previous thread on the forum regarding the passing of my Father-in-Law. He was a keen astronomer and had amased a good collection of equipment, including this camera. I was advised the best place to sell would infact be one of the Astronomy Forums so here we are. Im afraid I do not know much about it, other than what is on the receipt pictured. He paid £1559 just 2 years ago, and although it has been used, it has been kept in a hardcase with specific foam inserts so it looks near new. There are spare batteries, cable and charger included, plus the original box it came in. It would be sold as seen and would be sent out signed and tracked. Or collection would be from Chesterfield, Derbyshire. I am open to offers so please contact me either on the thread or via DM. Thank you all. Annie
  8. These are the last few bits I cant label, I know the first 3 are of the same item, but I cant make out the name (in blue) on it at all. Kind Regards, Annie
  9. Well Gents, I honestly can't thank you all enough! I have now got the majority of stuff on ebay (user: zifnab4x4) There are a few really random bits that I dont have a clue what to do with or what they are for so I will add the photos after this post. Again, a million times thank you. Annie
  10. If I could give anyone a piece of advice in life, its make a list of you hobby 'tools' I do embroidery and I know full well none of my family would have a clue, so I now have a list with pictures for them to use, in case of my early demise. Enjoy your de-clutter!
