    Default skywatcher ED80 80ed 80mm ED APO refractor f7.5 doublet proED evostar



    I may regret this but thought long and hard about what I want to do and a smaller scope and mount would accomplish my wants better as well as being more portable when I have kids in tow and much junk in the trunk. I didnt even take it out of the house yet as it has been cloudy ever since. Thus is life

    I believe proED, evostar, etc are all the same ED80 or 80ED scope. Feel free to correct me if im wrong.
    Comes with:
    original finderscope
    original 20mm 1.25in eyepiece
    original 5mm 1.25in eyepiece
    original keys
    original hard case (has a dent and some scuffs on the outside)
    original 2in diagonal
    bahtinov mask
    not original longer 13in dovetail. (has some scratches, missing 2 of the 4 cone error correction screws)
    (dont have the 2in to 1.25 eyepiece adapter)
    scope minimal scratches on the body in the white area around the focuser but overall great and nothing major to report. front objective has some spotting so it could use a cleaning.

    Ideally a local cash buyer (san francisco bay area) for now for $530. I could ship and PayPal for $595

    May be willing to talk trade for a william optics z61 or similar 60mm-ish type apo scope in the same size/weight class.

    I don't think 595 will be a good price for that used scope which is missing an adaptor and screws with some cosmetic imperfections even if there is a mask as part of the bundle. A new one is currently on sale for $ 615 with free shipping.
    Maybe $500 including shipping will be more like it.

    i sold my ed80 with the dedicated x0.85 fieldflattener/reducer and a 60mm guidescope plus a homemade focuser for 600dollar (5500kronor). And mine where in very good condition when i sold it.
    So i think its a little to high price you have set it out for.
