PRICE DROP: Skywatcher 8" f/5 reflector OTA

REDUCED TO $240.

I picked this one up secondhand about 3 years ago. Took the attached Moon image last night to show its in good working order. Also attached a shot of the Lagoon from when I first bought it. Works perfectly as you can see any fault in the photos is from the operator, not the OTA.

Battery-powered focuser motor included (not pictured). I added Bob's Knobs on the secondary, so it's far easier to collimate.

Primary & secondary mirrors have both been taken out & (very carefully) cleaned in the past week; both are in fine condition.

Comes with tube rings, dovetail, 2" Crayford with motor, end cap, 8 x 50 finderscope, 1.25 adapter and two Plossl eyepieces (20mm & 10mm). Tested it all myself last night and it works flawlessly for both visual and AP.

Pickup from either Central Coast or Sydney northern beaches, whichever works for you. Might be able to deliver depending on where in Sydney you are.

Hadn't considered it really. Wouldn't know where to look or what it would cost. Do you have any experience of such?

A sad Bobby that day .

Yikes. Yeah I can imagine being sad... Although I would probably be less sad than furious...!

Just sold this one to a local, so sorry I can't help this time. Hope you find another soon.

Cheers
Chris
