Post Astrophotography Gear: HEQ5 Pro GOTO + Awesome Autoguider Package + Skyfi + more!

Hi folks,

Looks as if I'll be moving overseas shortly, and am looking to offload a few things that I won't be able to lug with me...

All equipment sold in a used condition, but has seen very little actual work (half a dosen times outside tops) and has been well looked after, despite a few paint chips here and there.
Would suit new buyers looking to get into Astrophotography, possibly already having an imaging scope, but needing a heavier mount and autoguiding function.


What I have:


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro Goto mount (upgradable Synscan handcontroller).

Bonus $64 Shoestring USB2 EQ5 Interface cable (RJ45 -> USB2 for connecting mount directly to laptop via ASCOM/EQDIR).

$1000

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Orion Awesome Autoguider Package: Shortube ST80 + Starshoot Autoguider + Tube extender (camera focus) + Rings and Vixen dovetail bar.

Bonus Orion 12.5mm Plossl Illuminated Recticle eyepiece (used for drift alignment).

$400 Sold
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Carina Software Skyfi wireless telescope controller. Use your iPhone + Skysafari application to control the mount wirelessly!

Does NOT include my iPhone or Skysafari application, but I'll throw in the 6 spare AA batteries i had for it.

$100 Sold

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Items are pickup only from Chadstone, VIC.

Cash on pickup or Bank Transfer prefered.

I'm a reasonable chap and won't sell you something broken, but this is obvoiusly specialised equipment and you need to know what you're in for BEFORE buying.
I won't accept returns for any kind of usability or poor-alignment issues.


Cheers!
astroJK

Hi John, can you please clarify if the guide scope is the standard ST 80 (achromatic) or ED 80 as stated in the ad? Photos?
Cheers, Bo

Talking

Thanks for all your interest so far
No takers on the mount yet though... Is my price realistic?
