Skywatcher ed80


When you get bored you Pimp Telescopes, this is a Skywatcher ED80 that has had the tube and dew shield replaced with 6mm thick aluminium tube that has been polished and clear coated.

The dew shield is longer than the standard shield.
The tube is baffled exactly the same as the standard tubes are.
The finder scope has been upgraded with a 90 degree finder scope.

Comes with a York Optical 99% Dielectric Diagonal, the diagonal has a few marks on the barrel from the tightening screws.
The lens is in excellent unmarked condition.

Weight is 4.8 KG

OTA Only Mount not included.

$750 plus postage.

PM me if you are interested

Hi, just wondering who did the tube and dew shield mods, and who did any re-collimation required ?
