For Sale: Vixen Advanced Polaris Altazimuth (APZ) Modular Mount
condition: brand new in box (tried out once)
price: 389€ + 15,99€ postage (EU-wide)
***Updated with individual prices***
I purchased this early this year but just haven't been using it. A combination of other stuff going on and just generally bad timing on the 3 good nights we have had this year means I have not been able to get into using it in the way I had hoped. And I don't see it getting any better, so seems sensible to move it one to someone who can use it more effectively while I concentrate on broadband imaging with my ED80.
So, I have the XLT Fastar Compatible OTA on a Vixen dovetail with the 6x30 finder, 1.25" visual back and 25mm EP.
I also got a Skywatcher SCT focuser to help with mirror flop for imaging.
Also Bahtinov Mask
And homemade Sun Filter and Dew/Light shield that i can throw in if anyone wants them.
OTA is in perfect condition with the usual expected scratches on the dovetail, but otherwise in great condition. It is a fantastic scope giving great views, I am just not going to be able to use it much.
£875 for the OTA
£75 for the Focuser
£15 Bahtinov Mask
£950 for the lot or make me an offer!
Collection for OTA preferred as this is a bulky, fragile item and couriers generally will not insure such glass going through the post. I am not keen on posting, but could consider it if buyer is willing to organise themselves and take responsibility for it. I think I still have the boxes it came in. Focuser and Mask can obviously be posted.
Bank transfer, paypal accepted.
I'm in Gloucester.

I've decided to sell my beloved Skywatcher Skyliner-250PX FlexTube GO-TO Parabolic Dobsonian Telescope. It's in impeccable condition, and is absolutely superb. I still have all the boxes, instructions etc. Plus it comes with an Astrozap Light Shroud and accessories! All of which are in excellent A1 condition.
As some of you know already about the Skywatcher Skyliner-250PX FlexTube 254mm (10") f/1200 SynScan GO-TO Parabolic Dobsonian Telescope. Combining the power of a large optical tube, the extreme portability of the patented collapsible FlexTube design and Go-To technology, the new Skyliner FlexTube Synscan Dobsonians bring over 42,900 celestial objects right in front of your eyes, and automatically track them as they move across the night sky - its as easy as a walk in the park! The patented dual-encoder design allows you to manually move the telescope anytime and to anywhere you wish - with no need for realignment. Slewing to an object on the opposite side of the night sky no longer feels like watching a kettle boil. Simply push the button!
I'm selling as we require the space (excuse the pun) for a little one!

Selling my beloved telescope due to leaving the country soon
10' aperture, with an automated motor for easy star tracking. Also comes with the electronic pad so you can type in the star/planet/DSO you want to see and it will find it. Furthermore, the truss design allows it to be stored into a more compact shape, allowing for easier travel.
Also comes with several eyepieces/EP's (10mm/25mm/8mm) and a x2 Barlow, with an OIII Filter and various other accessories. Power supply/torch is included, with all necessary cables and power sockets.
Standard price on market for this model is £900-1000. Moreover, the additional accessories are worth at least £100 (the Celestron 8mm cost £60). Selling everything for around £600 O.N.O.
PS: Two things of note:- the holder for the electronic pad is damaged (as you can see from the photo), however the telescope itself works completely fine, the mirror is good and the electrics are spot on. Second, the plug is European standard (although it's detachable, and I have a EU-UK plug converter which I'll throw in).
PPS: Regarding delivery/payment; if interested, we can discuss ways to pay. I usually prefer cash in hand or Paypal, but we can work that out later on. As for delivery, I prefer pickup, but if needs be I could post (with the costs for such being borne by the buyer).
