COMPLETED - Skymax 180 Pro & NEQ6 Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

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

You will need to add a price to comply with the SGL selling rules. Usually somewhere between 60% and 70% of the retail price are used as a guideline.

      Hi all,
      With the advice I'm getting here, I'm planning to start my hobby with Skywatcher Maksutov 102 telescope. There are several models with this optical design, BUT it looks like they all sold out! 
      Almost all... FLO still could sell a Mak on the older EQ2 mount. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/maksutov/skywatcher-skymax-102-eq2.html 
      What would yo say about this combination - is it an obsolete scope, or the same as modern versions? How it this mount? I gather it can be also used as Alt-As, right? 
      And one more question, with this long focal length I think as a beginner I'm running into an issue of finding objects with it's FoV. What eyepieces would you recommend to add immediately to this scope? A good price/performance would be great!
      For instance, should I add a 0,5 reducer or a 35-40 mm eyepiece, should I immediately replace 10mm?
      I've read the great post of @The Warthog, so have an idea what focal lengths I'll need (10, 15, 25, 40). Just want to check your opinion what could be ideal price/performer.
       Thank you!

      Hi all, 
      As I'm selecting a new scope with a great help and advice from this community!
      As the optical system is getting clearer, I'm now checking the model. And really puzzled with the new SkyWatcher line: StarQuest. It looks on the paper as exactly the same as the telescopes from the other lines, but costs less.
      1. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-az-eq-avant/sky-watcher-skymax-102-az-eq-avant.htm
      2. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-starquest/sky-watcher-starquest-102mc-f127-maksutov-cassegrain-telescope.html
      Optical specs look identical, mounts are like twins, yet StarQuest is 20% cheaper.
      Have you had any experiences with these telescopes, are there any hidden tricks what aren't visible on the paper specs?
      Does it makes sense to pay extra for a SkyMax on Avant?
      And a similar question on a StarQuest refractor https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-starquest/sky-watcher-starquest-102r-f49-achromatic-refractor-telescope.html
      There is no direct comparison, but is the StarQuest is a copy of StarTravel 102 (https://www.firstlightoptics.com/startravel/skywatcher-startravel-102t-ota.html), or it's a different telescope optically and functionally?

      I've just ordered a Sky-Watcher Skymax 150 PRO from FLO. It will replace my wonderful 250px which is simply taking up too much room amongst my kids' growing population of Peppa Pig and friends!
      Will I miss the wider field of view and the light gathering capabilities of the big(ish) dob in my little backyard in averagely light polluted Bedford?  I've read good things about the MAK but I'm nervous!
      Part of my motivation was that I want to be able to share the joy of the night skies with my young kids (6 & 3). The dob is fabulous but it's not that easy for them to see through the eyepiece without knocking it off target. I have an HEQ5  Pro mount (which I've never used). I'm hoping that, along with the MAK, the kids might have a better chance of seeing things and being inspired rather than frustrated.
      I'll almost certainly sell the 250px asap and free-up the space for 'Peppa Pig land'.
      I hope I'm not making a grave (and expensive) mistake!
      Best wishes,

      Hello there! If someone has a 127 mak, in great condition (and reasonable price), that doesn't use/want anymore, (and he's/she's willing to post to Europe, at buyer's cost) can surely drop me a message!

      Good evening,
      My seven year old son is showing an interest in astronomy, and I would like to support this interest. Consequently, it is time to buy a telescope. We've used some old binoculars 7x50, and the moon is a big favourite in these.
      I'm hoping to buy a telescope that can show the rings of Saturn, Jupiter, and something that can split easier double stars. I am sure whatever we buy, it will show the moon in better detail than my old binoculars.
      The budget is £500-£900. It must cover the postage to Norway.
      My first thought was an 8" Dobsonian. It seems to be the "default" recommendation to any beginner. However, I've reconsidered due to the portability.
      At the moment I am thinking of the Skymax 127 Mak. It seems to offer excellent portability, and from what I can read will work well on the targets above. The AZ Gti wifi mount looks tempting with this scope.
      Am I on the right track here? Should I consider other alternatives? I looked at the Evostar 100ED, but it will not fit the budget unfortunately. I will buy the telescope from FLO.
