I was bought the following 2 years ago and have used it maximum 5 times. Would anyone be interested in acquiring?
SkyMax 180 Pro
NEQ6 Pro Synscan
Skywatcher 7Ah Rechargeable Power Tank
Canon EOS adapter for camera mount
I think this is a sensible price as it's in immaculate condition as you would expect - OIRO £1500
So, i've just begun my journey into Astronomy and subsequently have fallen into the rabbit hole of Astrophotography, as stated in the title i currently own a SkyWatcher Skyliner 200P FlexTube SynScan Dobsonian Telescope however as you may all know the dobsonian mount isn't really feasible for long exposure photographs and have started researching EQ Mounts and will most likely go with the Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO Mount & Tripod however i have seen comments about not being able to convert the FlexTube models of telescopes and was wondering if anyone here has had any success converting a SW flextube telescope to work on a EQ mount using tube rings?
A very lightly used AZ EQ6-GT mount and tripod for sale. The mount is approx 3 years old and I am the second owner. It is in exceptional condition and as stated has been very lightly used by myself and previous owner.
Reason I am selling, due to a change of job and working away significant parts of the week / month I have no time to indulge in the hobby at the moment.
The mount comes with all the usual items,
Mount and tripod, hand controller, cigarette power lead, eqmod usb lead, manual.
Also included in the sale is the ADM losmandy / Vixen saddle and the regulated power supply - this one as per FLO website - Nevada PS-08 PSU
Price is £995 ovno for everything.
I have the box for the mount with original packaging but not the tripod, hence this is pick up only or can travel and meet half way by arrangement - I travel extensively so I'm sure something can be arranged.
I accept cash, cheques and bank transfer (which is easiest to be honest). Paypal if the buyer pays the fees.
The mount is currently in my observatory and can be seen working if you wish.
The ES102 pictured is also for sale in the next ad!
Thanks for reading and if you have questions please PM me and we can discuss in more detail.

Thinking about getting a skyliner 200p dobsonian, maybe even the 250p. Looking for advice on these scopes and if they are a good buy at all? Previous scope was only a small 70mm refractor. Looking for good general viewing capabilities, for planetary and deep sky objects. Been out of astronomy for few years, but am getting back into it now. Thanks

I'm currently using the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P reflector telescope with the 10mm and 25mm EPs that came with it. I have been viewing for a while now and think its time I upgraded the eyepieces. My budget is around £500. I'd like to be able to get a range of EPs that will provide me with wide view and higher magnification viewing (a shorter length, longer length and a barlow (or perhaps a powermate but I dont know much about these other than they are seemingly better than barlows - perhaps a little over budget)).
I enjoy both planetary and DSO viewing though if I had a preference it would be the latter. I wear eyeglasses having astigmatism in both eyes so eye relief is important. I mainly view from rural areas but will sometimes get it out in my rather light polluted back garden, so I am flexible with exit pupil size (the maximum being 31/35mm I reckon).
There is quite a selection of vendors and I am hoping you folks can help me narrow down my choices with some first hand experience
