COMPLETED - Massive Astrophotography Equipment Sale


Recommended Posts

My astrophotography gear has not been getting much use of late so it's time for it to find a new owner be put to good use.

I stay near Glasgow and can travel to deliver the bigger items, time allowing. All prices exclude P&P which can be agreed when an item is sold, they will also be listed on astrobuysell when I get the time.

I'll also consider offers to take the lot or combinations of what's available.

OK, on to the items. I've listed them all below and included photos as well. I can take more pictures on request but all the kit is in pretty good condition. I've also included links to the items for sale.

Interested in the mount!

Hi, I'd be interested in the lrgb filter set and dew band. PM on it's way!

Clutch lever now fixed! Big thanks to @FLO for sorting me out with a replacement 👍😁

I'd have taken the HEQ5 but Glasgow is too far away and I'd like to see it working.

Would you have any reason to doubt the seller? 1500 posts and a member for 9 years.

Nope, no doubt whatsoever.  But I like to test these things myself if buying used with my own hard-earned.   Then both of us are happy and assured.

Totally understand. I could do a meet up somewhere between us but I think that might still be a bit far.
