Thanks. Just ordered some. Maybe not need them too often now, but will come in handy when those cold nights return later on in the year, although there still have been some pretty cold nights out there still, so may yet prove handy for a while! :)

      Hi all, I’m looking to sell my ZWO ASI1600MM-Cool plus accessories as a bundle. I’ve had a great time with this camera, but now have a baby daughter that is leaving me zero time for astro imaging! So I’m parking the hobby for a few years… but I’ll be back!
      A lot’s been written about how good this camera is so I won’t reiterate all that, except to say that I’ve had a lot of success coupling it to my ED-80 ‘scope and HEQ5 mount. I image from central Bristol and the light pollution is horrendous, but this camera and the narrowband filters bypass that problem rather neatly. Here are photos I’ve taken with the camera:

       
       
      The core kit I have is basically this: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-cameras/zwo-asi1600mm-pro-usb-3-mono-camera-efw8-125-lrgb-filters-125-ha-sii-oiii-filters-bundle.html
      Note the link is for the “Pro” version, which is slightly different to my one in two ways. One, the Pro has an in-built heater for the sensor. I bought one separately for mine, which of course I’ll include. (https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-accessories/zwo-anti-dew-heater-strip-for-asi-cooled-cameras.html). Two, the Pro has a larger memory buffer, but I never found the lack of this to be an issue with my usage.
       
      https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-accessories/zwo-holder-ring-for-asi-cooled-cameras-78mm-diameters.html
      Also included is a slightly different version of this holder ring.
       
      https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-accessories/zwo-nikon-lens-adapter-for-efw-asi1600.html
      And an adapter so you can attach Nikon F lenses.
       
      https://www.firstlightoptics.com/astronomy-cables-leads-accessories/lynx-astro-mount-power-cable-for-sky-watcher-mounts.html
      And this very useful cable!
       
      I've taken plenty of photos so you can see exactly what you'd get. First, here's the back of the camera:

       
      And the front, showing the sensor and heater:

       
      This is one side of the Electronic Focus Wheel. All seven filters are mounted:

       
      And the other side:

       
      Here's the Nikon lens adapter:

       
      And the camera holder:

       
      These are the cables it comes with. On the left we have the Lynx Astro cable, with a dual-tip; one for the camera, the other for the heater. Then we have the EFW cable, and blue cable for camera to computer -- both of which are originals. The blue cable is annoyingly short, so I'll throw in a longer one too.

       
      Here's the EFW box and included accessories:

       
      And finally, the camera box and included accessories:

       
      Approx. price breakdown if bought new:
      Camera and filters bundle: £1716
      Holder ring: £49
      Nikon lens adapter: £45
      Lynx Astro Silicone Power Cable: £19
      Total: £1829
       
      I’m asking for £1300 including recorded delivery to the UK; or £1250 if you can collect from central Bristol. Payment via PayPal or bank transfer. If it doesn't sell after a few weeks then I'll consider offers or splitting the kit.

      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! 
      Sky-watcher Skyliner-250PX Features:
      Magnifications (with Eyepieces supplied): x48 & x120
      Highest Practical Power (Potential): x500
      Diameter of Primary Mirror: 254mm

      Parabolic Primary Mirror
      0.5mm Ultra-Thin Secondary Mirror Supports
      9x50 Finderscope
      Direct SLR Camera Connection
      3-Point tube locking system, fully retractable
      Alt-Azimuth Mount with Accessory Tray and Built-in Heavy-Duty Servo Motors
      Go-To Handset
      42,900+ Object Database containing full Messier, NGC and IC catalogues
      Quiet operation
      Power Requirement: 12v DC Power Supply (Tip Positive). Sky-Watcher 17Ah Power Tank Recommended
      56% more Light Gathering than 200mm
       
      Cash On Collection. The scope plus light shroud and accessories is easily worth over £1k. I am seeking £800 ONO.
      I'm in Surrey. If you're interested just drop me a line! via PM please.
      Regards,
      Telrad
