WO Star 71 Astrograph - SOLD

Recommended Posts

It is with much regret that I am being forced into selling off a fair portion of my astro gear - starting off with a fine example of what the Star 71 Mk1 should have been for everone who brought one.

Its a telescope I would describe as competition standard, and indeed was good enough for me (and my son) to get shortlisted for the IAPY two years in a row - so its an instrument with provenance. And anyone who has followed my exploits with it will know just how good it is:

It comes with its soft carry case, and M48 > EOS adaptor. Condition-wise, there are a couple of light scratches on the powder coat finish but that does not affect its worth or performance.

The price? £650

The price is non-negotiable (no "best price" please... this isnt a car boot...lol).

Either buyer collects, or I can deliver (within a sensible driving distance if buyer chips towards the fuel)

Payment method(s): Cash, Bank transfer or Paypal (buyer pays fees).

UK SALE ONLY

 

This is your one chance to own it, make no bones about it... this telescope is irreplaceable.

I'd like to add that the item can also be couriered (for an additional tenner) - but that would be at risk to the buyer (I'd like it to arrive undamaged, but it would be well packaged).

I contacted Ian King about buying one NEW weeks ago but even now they are still out of stock everywhere. I opted for the WO GT71 triplet with FF instead. Would have had your arm off for this. Great price imo. GLWS

I'm very surprised this hasn't sold yet. It is an amazing scope and is truly irreplaceable. 

I've considered selling mine a few times but cannot bring myself to do it. I know I'd regret it.

Good luck with the sale.
