I would like some advice on what to do with a Cookbook CCD Camera.
My parents were avid amateur astronomers, volunteering at McDonald Observatory, and founding the Big Bed Astonomical Society. My father and two other gentlemen built a Cookbook Camera, which operated successfully for several years. Sadly, all three are now deceased and the camera has passed to me. I am also an amateur astronomer and telescope maker, but have no interest in imaging. The camera has no value to me except for some components that can be used for other purposes, and scrap. I would much prefer that it go to someone who can use it for its intended purpose, even if that's only to be caniballized to keep another Cookbook Camera running.
Can you give any advice on how best to accomplish this? eBay? AstroMart? I would most appreciate any help you can give.
