VC200L, pier, EQ6 Pro Skywatcher mount and extras.

Hi guys,

Due to relocation to Brisbane and the fact that I cannot use my astronomy gears at my place(too many trees) I have decided to sell all my astronomy gear. I will make and post all images later if anyone is interested. I open to a reasonable offers and I would prefer a local pick up.

I have the following:

1)Skywatcher EQ6 Pro mount on castors. The castors are not DIY, they were purchased a few years ago from some astronomy shop. I should have original caps from legs somewhere but it may be hard to find them in all boxes I have. If it is critical for a buyer just let me know and I will check all boxes. Otherwise it is good on castors, just roll it from a storage look wheels and the whole mount will be quite stable. The mount was used for a few years back in Melbourne. I checked it recently hooking my Sony A7s to it and it worked just fine. A bit of rust on weights though.

2) A solid steel pier for a EQ6 Pro head, a bit rusty and white in colour. Paid $550 for it custom made. It is very heavy. I used it in shed back in Melbourne but after relocation to Brisbane put the mount on its original tripod with castors.

3) VC200L tube in fantastic condition. I used it no more than 10 times and it was in a box for years. A complete set with all original pieces including a cheap electronic focuser mounted.

Also I have:

a Vixen reducer, a guide scope with QHy5 guiding camera camera mounted.

A tactical reticle with laser patterns(cross, dot and some more)

And a Bluetooth-serial dongle for the mount wireless control, I used it to control this mount through ASCOM. I am not sure if the battery in it is still ok. It has not been used for at least 5 years. Happy to give it to a buyer with VC200L at no extra cost.


I would prefer to sell everything to one buyer with local pickup from Kenmore Hills(4069). I would help as much as I can with setting it up but please keep in mind I have not done it all in years so a buyer can probably do it faster if it is their current hobby.
The OTA has its original box and it may be possible to post anywhere in Australia but I will give priority to any local buyer even if they offer slightly less.

Any reasonable offer will be considered.


The OTA PACKAGE HAS BEEN SOLD.
The PIER HAS BEEN SOLD.

Hi Mike,
Just to clarify, all items are currently in Qld and not in Vic?
Cheers

This OTA package is $1500(ono)

Please note that there are two guide scopes included. One is an original Vixen guidescope and the other one is for QHY5 guiding camera. The last one is shown on the OTA with the camera attached.


I will take picture of my eq6 Pro mount and the pier either today or tomorrow. I will also give a logitech gamepad, a bluetooth GPS module and a bluetooth serial module with the mount package. All three were working last time I checked.

the mount package includes all this.

The price of the mount package is $1600(ono)

If anyone wants both packages I will give a few 100s discount.

Dear Mike,

I am after just the EQ6 mount and tripod (not the additional kit in the mount package) for a work project. My max budget for a well-working system is $1k. Happy to wait to see if you get offers on the combined lot.

Best regards,
Sascha.

The pier pictures. I have one member interested in the pier only but I cannot say its sale is pending.

I would prefer the pier to be included into the mount package but if I have to separate it from the pier it is not a big deal.

I will post the mount pictures soon.

Hi Sasha,

Do you mean that you want the mount package without the pier?

Sorry guys I did not see that my location was shown as Seabrook, VIC and it brought up a lot of confusion from interested members. I have fixed it to my current location which is Kenmore Hills in Brisbane.

Replied to your PM Jacob.

Here are picture taken with my VC200L

I shared them here on the forum but I guess not many remember what they are. That's probably 1-2 months before I put it in storage.

Hi Mike, yes I meant the mount without the pier; however, I have since sourced a mount elsewhere; thanks anyway.

No worries Sasha.
My apologies to you and everybody who is interested in the mount for my promises to post them soon. I am just too busy at the moment with other things.

I think I will create a new adv with whats left after the pier is sold. And add all pictures straight away.



BTW, and I hope I am not breaking any rules. I am selling my laser cutting business as well. It served this community well when I was offering Bahtinov masks here on the forum but you can do a lot of other products with it. It is not in the best shape now but still brings about $40000-50000 turnover a year for just 2-3 hours of work a day. With a new owner it can be easily expanded making it over $100 000 a year. It was in this good shape when I was running it from Melbourne.

So if anybody interested please PM me and I will send you a link to my adv for the business.
