Hi, I'm keen to buy a small good quality refractor primarily for astrophotography of galaxies and nebulae. I'd like to use my Pentax K1 full frame DSLR with the telescope.
Reviewing YouTube & Google the; Altair Astro 72 EDF deluxe & William Optics 71GT look like they might be good models to go for. I'd welcome the community's views on both, and any other alternatives people recommend.
Selling my full narrowband set up for multiple reasons: I could do with the money and mono just isn't really doing it for me.
Altair Astro 183m Tec
Baader Narrowband filters (Ha, OIII, SII and Clear)
ZWO Electronic Mini Filter Wheel
All associated cables/plugs
T2 extensions to reach 55mm back focus for use with reducers
Boxes and cases
There is a scratch on the T2-T2 adaptor for the filter wheel and a couple of the labels on the filter boxes have been torn. But otherwise the important parts work perfectly well.
Collection or postage via DPD.
Buyer to pay postage and PayPal fees.
No offers currently accepted, and I would rather not split
This is a 6" f/5.9 refractor (890mm focal length). It is constructed from high quality Japanese Ohara and German Schott glass with top quality coatings. This has the large 3" rotatable focuser. It can accept a 2" or a 1.25" diagonal.
It comes with a carrying handle and a vixen dovetail bar. As you can see there is some of the usual scuffing on the dovetail bar.
No doubt you have seen the reviews of this scope. We have gone a bit berzerk over the last few months and have run out of scope shelves, so this one needs to go. We bought it new around 18 months ago direct from Altair Astro. It has seen minimal use what with one thing or another.
£590 preferably by bank transfer. The box and packing material has gone the way of all things. As such, this would need to be collected. I don't mind driving to meet someone half-way if necessary.
Hi there guys, realise it’s probably a bit of a long shot, but I’m hoping that someone on Stargazers is looking to part with an Altair Astro Starbase. Have my heart set on one of these as the ideal future proof tripod for my field observing platform.
Hi there, I am contemplating getting an 80mm scope to replace my existing 9x50mm RACI finderscope. However this got me thinking about how to mount the 80mm scope onto the Edge. Dual dovetail plates are out, because I use a Kendrick ZapCap and I don't fancy cutting a section out to accommodate another dovetail bar. I really like the look of the Altair Astro ultralight guidescope rings. Has anybody ever mounted these to an SCT using the existing attachment points on the rear mirror cell?
