COMPLETED - Sold STP - Upgraded SW Evostar 80ED & Flattener


Recommended Posts

There’s a new kid on the block now, so it’s time to move this brilliant scope onto another happy owner.

Bought new from FLO just over 2 years age, it’s produced some awesome image - shown below - all taken with this scope and an ASI294 camera.

I’ve upgraded the focuser to an OVL model, and the difference from the standard one is immense. Runs smooth from one end to the other, and has no problem holding a lump of a cooled camera or a DSLR without slipping. It also has a standard 2” connector.

Also included is the Skywatcher 0.85 focal reducer/flattener with 2” adapter, so swapping out the camera for the eyepiece is a 2 second job.

The optics are all clean, bright and scratch-free. There’s a piece of Velcro on the tube, where I used to have my ASIair V1 stuck on. Apart from the usual bite marks on the dovetail, it’s in excellent overall condition.

The standard SW 9x50 finder scope, 28mm eyepiece, a couple of adapters, and diagonal are all included, also comes with the aluminium case.

This whole outfit would cost you £842 plus delivery, to buy from FLO today. It’s yours for £525 delivered to a UK mainland address.

      Hi All,
      I am currently researching which setup to purchase as my first proper scope (once they are back in stock).
      I thought I had settled on the Skywatcher Explorer 130ps AZ GTi but then I saw the Skywatcher Star Discovery 150i for just a little more money.
      Could anyone please tell me the difference between the 2 OTA's (other than the different aperture size), and also the difference between the 2 mounts?
      I realise that the AZ GTi can be modified to run in EQ mode whereas the Star Discovery can't.
      Can the Star Discovery view all the way to the zenith or does the OTA catch the mount or tripod before it gets there?
       
      Thanks

      I've been trying to image a couple of galaxies per night, one pre and one post flip.  On early Saturday morning at 1:30am I changed over to M82, and acquired 63 x 3 mins subs, OSC, totalling 3 hours and 9 minutes of data. 
      Camera: ZWO 2600MC at -10 deg C, gain 100, offset 50
      Telescope: Skywatcher 250PX (blue tube), 1200mm F4.7
      Mount: Mesu e200
      Guiding: ZWO OAGv2, 290MM, PHD2
      Filters: None
      Software: APT for capture, APP and PS for processing
       
      I havent really had a chance to get much use out of this camera since I bought it in December, and I havent processed many OSC images before.  I've a bit of work to do, but still very happy with the quality of the data for just 3 hours of integration time.  I would like to add some Ha to this, but purposely didnt bother during the recent clear spell, as it was moonless nights and I gathered some broadband data on other targets instead.
       
      CC welcome.
