Vixen VC200L, Sky Watcher 16" collapsible dob, Nagler/Ethos & more

I'm not using this equipment much any more so I hope someone might be interested in taking some or all of it off my hands. All equipment located near Bertram, Western Australia (38km south of Perth, just off the Kwinana). List at the top, pictures at the bottom. All prices inclusive of postage except telescopes and mounts - if you need the latter shipped we'll have to talk!

Please PM offers and feel free to post questions or request more pictures.

Vixen VC-200L on a CG5-GT computerised mount - $1,200 ONO
separately, Mount $800, OTA, $600 incl. aluminium OTA case.
scope has some mirror damage due to living in the tropics, I only use it for visual observing and it doesn't affect my enjoyment in the slightest
incl. Vixen illuminated reticule 7x50mm finder. Person who buys the scope can have any unsold Vixen accessories below (not eyepieces) free.

Vixen Dew heater $50
Vixen Dovetail plate $15 - unused SOLD
Vixen focal reducer for VC200L $150 - unused
Vixen flip mirror $60 - unused SOLD

Sky Watcher 16" Collapsible GT Dobsonian - $3,000
Used maybe 20 times. Excellent condition, a little dust on the primary which should clean easily. Has Mylar film integrated into the primary mirror cover (used to view the transit of Venus and sunspots) I can also throw in spirit levels and heavy duty castors I was going to attach to it if you want them. I still have the box the primary mirror came in for transportation. Includes the 10mm/20mm super plossls, cheshire-type collimator and finder that came with the original unit, which are all unused.

Televue Ethos 13mm - $610 - has most of the original box, but top part of foam inside missing - should be around here somewhere!!

Hi Paul,

I remember it being a lot harder the last time I tried to get a picture of the mirror- unfortunately, its pixelated- I'll try again with zoom. The spots you see in this image are on the actual surface of the mirror. You can't see anything when you use the scope, but I assume they are reducing the light transmission at the very least.

http://img4.imagetitan.com/img.php?i...1_dsc_0168.jpg

ok, here it is with more zoom.

http://img4.imagetitan.com/img.php?i...1_dsc_0169.jpg


My best guess is, that living in A/C in Singapore, I sometimes didn't let the scope reach ambient before unboxing it for use. Moisture condensed on the cold mirror and whatever was in it has etched the mirror surface.

Kind Regards,

Brad.
