Condition: Pristine, as NEW (and it was never cleaned, just blown)
Reason to sell: I don't make astrophotography anymore!

or find me here .
Price: 350 Euro.
I am selling my Takahashi Mewlon 108B as I made a serious mistake – I started Electronically Assisted Astronomy and now I am after a flat field refractor. This Mewlon, being the B series, comes with the 7x50 Takahashi illuminated finderscope, factory front cover, factory dovetail and a 2” JMI motorized focuser which works both with or without power (you need to loosen up a tool-less screw to gain manual control).
I purchased this scope from Italy and you can see an actual review of this particular scope here (Google translate is your friend):
The ad from Cloudynights is here:
The scope will be shipped in the original box, properly packed and the original case will be placed in a bigger box, again, properly packed, via courier service, fully insured with tracking. I tested the scope myself and there is no loss of illumination or mirror damage which would warrant a recoating of this scope any time soon. The photos I attach I took when I mounted the scope. For more photos, just see the ad above.
I would be happy to part with it for £ 1,240 including shipping and delivery.
Straight swap of my Takahashi 32mm Abbe for a Takahashi 28mm Erfle (not LE).
Where do I start? My dad was left a Takahashi Mewlon M-210 relector telscope, with a Losmandy GM8 mount with a Losmandy Gemini Systems controller V1. His good friend owned it and we used to go and visit to see the night sky and planets. He used to set it all up and control it using the slightly antiquated Gemini V1 controller. I understand that it's an an expensive setup, but it's not all working. The controller has an SRAM error when booting up, the unit had been left for nearly a year and the battery was flat. Replacing it only gives the error. I guess we have two options, one is to repair the Gemini controller or use something else to control the mount. I have contacted AstroEQ, but I've not had a reply yet.
So could someone let me know of some options that would be available to us, ideally at present, only spending a small amount of money would be best to get it working. If we find it's too advanced in rookie hands then it might be best to trade it in for something smaller and easier...
