Various Items - Finder - Saddle - etc

Having a decent clean out.

Set of no-name tube rings, "about" 12" ID, used extensively on my 10" (self-made tube) newt. Currently attached to a home-brew Losmandy style rail. Very functional. $80.

Cassidy (I believe) saddle, to accept Losmandy style dove-plates. In excellent condition, not the prettiest, but it works. Was attached to my NEQ6, and will have a couple of spare holes bored, no effect on functionality. $100. ***SOLD***

Pair of ADM dovetail saddles, possibly from a finder setup I had a while back. Just the saddles here though, plus a spare dovetail bar, Vixen sized. $55.

Pair of 2" fittings. One is a Televue 2" extension tube, "about" 2" extension. The other is a Lumicon SCT 2" visual back. It has a female thread, "about" 51mm dia, inside, and I figure it screws onto the rear of the SCT style scopes, and allows 2" items to be attached, two set-screws. TV one has an extra screw thread bored. $20 each.

Selection of tube brackets, suitable for finder mounts, or other uses, one is Lumicon branded, and there are a couple of old W/O finder upstands. $40 the lot.

Meade 6x30 finder and bracket. Butt ugly, but works, I also fashioned a dovetail foot, so it fitted the finder saddle on my previous scope. It may or may not fit what you have but at the money who can complain? $25. ***SOLD***

Pair of IR cut filters, both 1.25", used them when webcam imaging. One is Baader brand, the other unknown. $75 for both.

Dew heaters, two are DewNot, and one has not been used. The spare is unknown brand, and about 6" long. $20 each. ***SOLD the 2" Dew-Not, in bag***

Cable to connect the Eq mount to the PC, (in my case the Skywatcher NEQ6 to the PC). Has USB plug one end, and DB9 (for the mount) on the other. Other cable thing is possibly a Telrad heater, not sure, if you know, tell me $15 each.

Home-brew side by side saddle system, with a Losmandy style rail underneath, and a Losmandy clone saddle on one side. "Free" side is ready to accept whatever you want, in my case I used the Cassidy saddle listed above, holes are all set to attach it. Shown with it is a spare Losmandy style rail. SBS $45. Rail $20. ***SBS is SOLD***

Feather Touch Motor Focus unit. Had this since I first got my F/T focuser, and it has been a god-send for imaging. Hasn't been used for ages though, so time to move it. Comprises, hub, hand-controller, and motor unit to fit the 2" series of F/T focuser. Cables (not shown) to fit between the H/C and hub, and hub/motor unit. Needs a power input, but simple enough to sort. Last time I used it, some years back, it worked beautifully, no guarantees now. $200. ***SOLD***

All items are plus post, PayPal etc. All are in Aus $. If you live this side of the pond we'll work something out.

Via PM please. If you think my prices are way out of line, PM me please.

And replied Paul. My last message failed, you seem to have exceeded your PM storage.
