Skywatcher 200 pds with HEQ5 pro synscan mount

Recommended Posts

8 inch Newtonian for visual or astrophotography use. Mount is a good solid unit. Comes with mains and cigar lighter power leads. 28mm 2 inch eyepiece. 25 and 10mm I.25 inch eyepieces and 2x Barlow. Skywatcher coma corrector. Red light torch (needs new batteries). Padded carry case for scope. Skywatcher ST80 guide scope with Skywatcher guidescope mount. Extra counterweight. Azimuth bolts are metal upgrades from Bob’s Knobs. Carry case for eyepieces etc.

Looking for offers around £ 800 for the whole setup. (Preferred option). But,  I would consider splitting the scope case, ST80 and guidescope mount. Make me a sensible offer.
I would also consider a swap for a one shot Colour ccd or cmos camera for deep sky use. Must be cooled and small bodied for Hyperstar use such as Atik Horizon os asi 533 pro. Tell me what you’ve got and we can work something out if the camera is suitable.


i live in France in the Haute Vienne but am back in the UK at Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire from Dec.20 to 28th. Collection only please. Payment by PayPal only. Many thanks.

Just wondering what sort of price would you be looking to get for the cc?

      As title. Not the best to look at cosmetically but in good working order.
      Mount has upgraded latitude bolts.
      Will throw in the following:
      Sky-Watcher power supply
      HiteCastro DC focus controller
      EQDIR cable to control mount from laptop
      Long UK plug mains power cable
      USB hub
      Lovely Lords Cricket bag
      £375 ONO
      Based in Kent near Maidstone.
      Collection only.

      Here we have a clone of an ST80 branded as Helios, 80mm Achromatic F5 objective. (OTA only)
      Its not in the best condition. Numerous shallow scratches to the outer surface of the primary being the main issue.
      However, my assessment is that its not quite ready for the great telescope graveyard in the sky yet.
      The scratches of course will not be resolved when in focus and so it will still work as a guide scope or perhaps something to let younger children loose on without fear of what they might do to your ED triplet.
      Its mechanically sound in terms of the body / focuser / tube rings, so perhaps someone can make me an offer on those components for spare parts?
      For the whole thing I would be looking for 30 pounds to make it worth posting it realistically, I think that the tube rings / focuser together are worth that as spares parts to someone regardless of the objective.
      If you are willing to pick it up from Lincoln then a token amount would be accepted so make me an offer.

      I cannot emphasise enough my current feeling of happiness. For weeks on end, I've been looking for a seller in Japan that offers the HEQ5, but the effort was futile.
      Until now, that is.
      FLO (First Light Optics) ships to Japan! They really do! (Well, I will have to add 200£ to the mix, though). What makes matters better is that by the end of the year, I'll be able to afford the HEQ5, a good (F4) guide scope, a autoguiding camera, AND possibly a Coma Corrector! 
      But then again, I'm thwarted by a question my beginner brain cannot answer. Assuming I have the HEQ5 perfectly Polar Aligned (Sharpcap Pro FTW) and I've balanced correctly (that biasing rubbish), what kind of subs will I be expecting with roughly 7-8 kg on the HEQ5 total? 
      Clear skies,
