GSO RC8 C/F + Moonlite focuser

Heading in a different direction with imaging so up for sale is my 1 year old GSO RC8 Carbon Fibre OTA. (Currently $1399 at Andrews)

This is a 200mm f8.0 unit with a focal length of $1625mm, weighs 7.5kgs rides nicely on my EQ-6 (not included).

Fitted with a beautiful 1 year old blue Moonlite Focusser CSL 2.5" large format
High res stepper motor with mini V2 Controller
Flange, Drawtube = 1.5" travel 68mm
Wonderfully precise, Ascom compliant & easy to use!
(was $1115 incl shipping to Australia)

2x Losmandy counterweights ($150)

Secondary Dew heater ($129)

Original focusser, Original Box & Dewalt soft padded carry case ($99)

I've spent the time to have this unit so expertly Collimated that a leading Malin & Apod winner has commented favourably on how how well it performs!

This unit performs very well, travels nicely & provides great bang for the buck.

Buy all this new and it will set you back almost $2900 and you'd still need to have it properly collimated.

Or you can have mine for just $2100 + shipping from Melbourne, local pickup/inspection welcome.
