200mm f5 Newtonian OTA

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With reluctance I am looking to sell my 200mm aperture f5 Helios Newtonian OTA. (Helios is a brand that became incorporated into Skywatcher - this closely resembles Skywatcher OTAs)

The Helios is offered with single speed rack & pinion focuser, tube rings, 22 to 1.25" adaptor, dovetail bar and grab handle for £90 o.n.o.  In good condition except that the dovetail bar appears to be discoloured by exposure to sunlight.

I have not used the telescope for many months and with a persistent problem in my right arm my enthusiasm for moving heavy kit around has diminished.

Buyer to collect from North Bucks.

Offered as option with the OTA: EQ5 mount with RA drive + 6 volt sealed lead-acid battery +charger + standard and extra long Dec slow motion manual shafts. £150. Condition - used but working.

 

If I sell the OTA I will be looking to dispose of its accessories:

9x50 Skywatcher straight finder - in excellent condition except that the small plastic dust cap is missing.

Cheshire collimator, boxed, as new.

Helical fine focuser, range 10mm, ID 1.25", screws into 2"adapter.

3x Datysun Barlow, as new, boxed.

Widefield eyepiece, 22mm f.l., 30mm body (note not 1.25")  with built in focus, works well with this telescope.

Plastic collimation cap (no cost).

This bundle would cost around £114 new - offered if bought with scope at £75 o.n.o.

Still no interest? I am prepared to bundle a EQ5 mount with RA drive with the OTA if this gets a sale.

For an additional £150 (new this mount + drive sells for about £300).

The OTA is also offered elsewhere.

      Skywatcher 150/1200 f8 planetary Newtonian.
      Bought this originally intending to set up a planetary rig but circumstances call for sale.
      Will come with eyepieces and a collimation eyepiece. Not used by myself and has seen very little use. Mirrors in good condition
      Collection only
      £50

      I’m looking for a supplier of telescope quality mirror sets at 100mm f4, preferably parabolic. Does anyone have suggestions? I would specially commission if necessary.

      Hi guys,
      This is the first lights of my ASA 12"N f/3.62 (purchased in 2007) with my Moravian G4-16000 CCD camera using one KAF-16803 chip of 36mm x 36mm (4K x 4K).
      The adjustments, collimation, ASA OK3-Z pression screws, asked a lot of attention.
      For a precise collimation, i use the CATSEYE XL & XLKP kit.
      This is the first 3hrs of exposures taken the last weekend in one night. The second night was too windy unfortunately.

      Hello Everyone,
      I have a GSO 6" f/4 Astrograph, and there's always been this issue with elongated stars on one edge. I've checked collimation and it is perfect, but for the elongation on one corner. Could someone please throw some light on what's happening

      Right now i am imaging with a Star Adventurer and a 300mm telelens on a dslr. 
      I am planning to upgrade to the eq6-r pro and currently i am searching for a telescope. i want to take pictures of nebulae, galaxies and planets. 
      My first idea was to get the Skywatcher 250/1200, then i read that it is too big for the eq6, i was recommended a shorter tube like the orion 10" at f/3.9 or a SCT, due to my budget i can't get higher than the edgeHD 8 unfortunately.
      what would you recommend? i am also open for different suggestions, thank you :)
