I only have room in my life for one lovely refractor, so one must go. I have acquired a Takahashi, so my beloved and well cared for William Optics Zenithstar SD66 has to go. It is optically perfect with no scuffs or scrapes. Has been used as a guide scope and astrograph on my LX90. It comes in its aluminum flight case. OTA only.
Price is £280 or 325 euros, to include postage within the EU.
PM me if interested.
I have a quick question. I am thinking (very loosely) about the possibility of a small APO for wide field views to piggyback on my CPC 1100. I am interested in recommendations. At the moment I am not planning on AP.
I can see that there is a huge range in prices and to be honest I am looking for something thats reasonably decent quality (circa £500 - having no experience with APOs I really don't have a sense as to whether thats quite enough or not really enough). I had looked at the Orion Carbon Fibre 80mm f/6 APO Triplet but its just a bit too much money.
And many thanks.
For sale is my lovely Explore Scientific APO ED 102mm triplet refractor.
Lovely condition, great optics that are unmarked and blemish free, views are stunning and pin sharp.
Selling due to lack of use, as a recent change of job keeps me away from home quite a bit, so its not getting any use.
Essential 102mm triplet APO refractor
Tube rings with integrated carry handle
2 inch visual back / adaptors and focuser
It is the essentials model so didn't come with any finder or diagonal.
Price is £450 ovno due to condition and inclusion of vixen dovetail.
Payment accepted is cash, cheque or bank transfer (which is easiest) or PayPal if buyer pays fees.
Pick up only or can meet half way by arrangement - don't really like sending optics through the post.
Thanks for reading and if you have any questions then please pm me and we can discuss in more detail.
Hi Guys, any one had any use of a Technosky Apo or know anything about them.
I am looking at getting my first apo as usually I am Astrograph man and seen this 70/478 mm quadruplet flatfield for £482. It seems a good deal but was just wondering about the build quality? As this seems cheap for a quadruplet!!! https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/tecnosky-telescope-ap-70-478-quadruplet-flatfield-ota/p,57327#tab_bar_1_select
I'm considering buying a new telescope (my first telescope) for astrophotography, and some visual astronomy.
But I can't decide which type should I get. I mainly want to photograph deep sky objects. After testing some variations in Stellarium I am worried that some deep sky objects won't fit into the aperture of an 8" reflector.
I'm wondering which type should I get. And also I'm worried that I won't be able to photograph anything with a small refractor because I live near a city.
I am also open to any suggestions for a beginner astrophotography telescope. (around 800$ would be perfect)
I apologise if I made any writing mistakes.
Edit: I'm considering buying a Bresser Messier 203/800 or a William Optics Zenithstar 61 but I'm still open to any suggestions.
