  1. PM sent to register my interest if Peter changes his mind. Al
  2. For sale is my Takahashi Tube Cradle. 125mm inner diameter. Used with a TSA-120 but should also fit the FSQ-106ED. Good condition. £175 delivered to a UK address. Bank transfer preferred. Thanks for looking. Al
  3. I recognised the symptoms of astrophotography fever early this time around Up for sale is an Atik 314L+, a ZWO OAG, 25mm Baader T spacer, T to 1.25" filter holder and an Astronomik CLS CCD 1.25" filter. All in good condition cosmetically and fully functional. The black speck on the filter in one of the images was a dust speck now blown off. I have added a picture taken with this configuration to show everything works (not to advertise my photography skills). The scope used for the shot was a Takahashi FC-76 DC (also up for sale in another advert). It was used with a ZWO ASI 120MM Mini for the guide camera (not included). I can also throw in a 1.25" nosepiece if that helps. £600 delivered to a UK address. Bank transfer preferred. Thanks for looking. Al
  4. 25mm objective. F7. Bought to use as a finder, which I think it is great for. Can also use with a diagonal (but will need a short optical path like a Tak prism diagonal). Now surplus to requirements. A few small marks but generally in good condition. £110 delivered to a UK address. Bank transfer preferred. Thanks for looking. Al
  5. For sale is my much loved FC-76DC. Used primarily as a grab and go scope but not seeing much use since I installed a permanent pier. I set it up for some astrophotography, for which it works well with my Atik 314L, but it has showed me that I will need a new mount to get better results. So, that’s the plan - sell some gear and get a new mount capable of photography with the TSA-120. Scope is in very good condition. There is a very small chip in the paint where a cable end knocked it, but this is not very noticeable. There is also a flake of paint missing on the finder plate, but this is covered by the finder bracket. I have done my best to photograph both marks. Comes with a nice pair of rings and a Berlebach dovetail which has the usual marks. Also includes the Tak 6x30 finder stalk (no finder) and the 2” visual back. Optics never touched. Purchased new in January 2017 from Ian King. Instructions and certificate included. Price is £800 plus delivery. I still have the original packaging so shipping should be OK, or buyer collects. Bank transfer preferred or cash on collection. Note that this is the original DC version not the DCU model with the split tube. Thanks for looking. Al
  6. Hi @F15Rules. I have a GPDX that I am thinking of parting with. It has been great for visual but I am dabbling in AP and am struggling with it for that. I am thinking of getting a belt-driven HEQ5 Pro instead. Anyway, it is decent condition cosmetically for its age. It has the SynScan EQ5 upgrade and handset so has Go To. I also added an ADM puck so I can use a Losmandy saddle. No tripod and I may end up keeping the saddle (not the puck). Let me know if you want more details. Al
  7. The last of my tripods, still looking for a new home. Offers considered if buyer collects. Al
  8. Looking for a pair of Parallax 125mm tube rings in good condition for my Takahashi TSA-120. Can trade for a clamshell if that helps. Regards Al
