COMPLETED - SOLD - Astro Clear Out - Mounts / Motors / Binoculars

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to clear some stuff out for a while, but have only just got around to it.

Skywatcher EQ5 Deluxe - £145 + Postage - Sold Pending Payment

Includes 1x 5kg counterweight, tripod and original slow-motion control knobs and polar scope.

Tripod legs have strips of reflective tape added as well as velcro strips for attaching handsets.

Some signs of wear on the saddle and tripod and a bit of rust on the counterweight.

Selling this as I have upgraded to a Vixen GPD2 so this isn't getting any use any more.









Skywatcher Deluxe Dual Axis Motors - £75 + Postage - Sale Pending

Also includes a 3.7ah NiMH Rechargeable Battery and charger, but you will need to make up a Tamiya Race Pack to 2.1mm power jack.

Happy to bundle this with the EQ5 for a combined price of £200


William Optics EZ-Touch II Alt Az Mount - £170 + Postage

This is a clone of the original AYO Mount and will take telescopes up to 10kg on each side.  Long since discontinued, but the details of this mount can be found here.  One Vixen clamp is built in with the other side of the mount drilled and threaded for either a counterweight bar or for a second clamp.

Some minor wear where this attaches to the tripod, but apart from that it is in excellent condition.

The mount works beautifully but I've decided that I prefer a mount with slow-mo controls and so am selling to raise funds for a Rowan AZ100.







Pentax SP 8x40 Binoculars - £50 + Postage - Sale Pending

In pristine condition as I have only used them a couple of times.  Shortly after purchasing these I picked up a pair of Helios Lightwing HR 8x42 Roof Prisms that I prefer and so these have sat in their box on a shelf for a while.

Optics are clean, blemish and fungus free as you'd expect.






I'm happy to courier any of the above, but can't offer local collection at this time due to Covid restrictions.

Payment by PayPal (fees covered) or F&F.
