COMPLETED - SOLD (William Optics Zenith Star 73 (£350)) SOLD

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I am selling my WO Z73. I bought it last year to take away on holiday with me but it ended up staying at home. It has been sat on my shelf and has only ever been used once - my 80ED is more familiar to setup and the WO has been overlooked at every opportunity to get an imaging session done.

The scope comes with the WO red dot finder and it is all as new in mint condition, if I were to be very picky I’d have to say that there  is one tiny blemish, one very light mark on the dovetail bar where it was once mounted on my EQ5. 

So if you’re interested or want any more photos or info please get in touch.

I am not in the market for a WO Z73 , but for those considering a purchase you would not be disappointed. 

For the last year I have been using a WO Z61, it’s little baby brother, and I have had a hell of a lot of fun with it. My main issue with the Z61 has been the difficulty in guiding for long exposures as guidescope rings are not standard. Here the Z73 over comes this and has the added benefit of aperture and the same great optics.

Both solar work with a Daystar Quark, wide-field imaging unguided or deep sky guided are all great options for those looking for versatility.

Am humming and harring over this (and am literally 10 miles down the road) For a grab n go visual, are there any reasons not to go with this?
