Skywatcher Skyliner 250px Synscan GOTO (and various EP's/Accessories)

Recommended Posts

Selling my beloved telescope due to leaving the country soon :hmh:

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).

I should add that I need this scope to be sold before the 15th October; that's roughly around the time I leave =/

May be willing to haggle if needs be.

      Hi All,
      If anyone is looking for a great telescope, I'm selling my NexStar 8SE. It's in great condition, Optics are immaculate and there is only some signs of use on the dovetail bar and the black rim that has faded a bit on one side. The reason that I'm selling is that I'm looking to upgrade.
      I had some amazing views of planets and DSO through this scope.... it really is a performer in quite a compact package.
      This scope was on a CGEM most of it life so the NexStar Alt-Az mount was hardly used.
      I prefer to have this scope local pickup or I'm happy to deliver and even give a tutorial and demonstration of how to use it.. for that reason I'm targeting a buyer around Sydney Australia.
      The price I'm asking is $1650AUD.
      Clear Skies.

      Having moved to the F8 SCT version I have decided to sell my 14 inch Meade ACF F10 OTA. Can't really justify keeping it any longer as a 'spare'.
      This is just the OTA with a Losmandy plate attached, no finder or eyepieces. I used it with a Moonlite focuser, which I have repurposed,  so there is just the visual back, please see the photo's.
      The optics are in superb condition and the tube just has a few marks on the paintwork.  The first owner stuck a couple of velcro pads on the OTA for sticking accessories such as the dew heater on.
      The scope has always been kept in a heated observatory
      It is a very heavy telescope, circa 28Kg, so you will need something like an Eq8 to mount it.
      This really is a pick-up only, though I do have part of the original box to make transportation easier. Scope is in Maidenhead in the Thames Valley. Could arrange a part-way meet and as we often go to Devon it would be especially convenient for anyone near the M4-M5 route from the Thames Valley down to Devon.
      Asking £2300

      ***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.
