    Default UK Complete Astronomy/AP Setup.



    Due to health reasons, I am reluctantly having to sell all my astronomy kit. It comprises everything in my signature, plus the following items:

    Original Skywatcher 9x50 finder scope.

    2 Canon lenses 1x18to55mm zoom image stabilising lens. 1x55to250mm zoom stabilising lens. A Canon charger and battery, plus a camera bag.

    1x400amp starter battery and charger.

    A metal compartmentalised case. Various cables for connecting the mount and cameras etc to a laptop.

    This must be sold as a complete setup, I will not split any items.

    £1500 or very near offer. Pick up only! Please PM me with any questions/offers etc.

    Please see photos of most my kit below.







    Telescope: Skywatcher Explorer 200P on a Synscan enabled EQ5 mount.
    Finder/Guide scope: TS Optics TSFRE960WS 60mm RACI.
    EP's: 2x25mm and 2x10mm Plössl's + 2" ES 25mm 70° and 2x12.5mm illuminated reticle.
    Barlow lenses: 2x and 3x short tubes.
    Cameras: Canon 550D T2i (unmodified), ZWO colour USB3.0 ASI120MC-S guide/planetary cam & a Logitech Quickcam pro 4000 modded.

    Sorry to hear you're unwell Howard. That kit would have been perfect for me a few months ago and looks a bargain. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for any potential buyers in our area. Get well soon mate.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Unfortunately, my condition will only become worse over time. This means that lifting, bending and carrying and walking are fast becoming something I can't do, hence the reluctant sale of my kit.

    Since my kit remains unsold, I have reduced the price to £1,350 or a very near offer.
