Gold Tube Skywatcher ED80

I think it's about time I let this one go. It's just sad watching the ED80 be used for nothing but a guidescope. Let's hope the next owner gets as much use out of it as I did over the years. This is a gold tube (classic) skywatcher ED80 with single speed focuser. I've tightened the grub screws on the focuser so it's nice and solid and will hold almost anything (within reason) without slipping even when pointing at the zenith. Unfortunately, it is missing that little tightening knob underneath it but it should be a simple matter of heading off to bunnings and grabbing a 50cent bolt to replace it. I also have a flattener reduce that I bought during QLD astrofest that I've only used a number of times. Optically for the ED80, there are a few spots but nothing a bit of isopropyl and cotton swabs cant fix.

For both the scope and the reducer/flattener, I'll start off the sales at $400.
For just the ED80, $200 (any lower and I'd be losing my mind )
For just the flattener (won't be sold until the scopes sold), $250

Photos to come as it is currently set up as my guidescope.

Oh forgot to mention PICK UP only on the Gold Coast or I can drive within an hour as long as you pay for petrol
