Excellent camera package - PRICE REDUCED

Hi folks
I bought this QHY183C in March (hence still under warranty) as my first OSC and bit of a practice platform ahead of a more capable camera. But this package has so much more:
Includes a Cyclops Optics Blade-C adapter for Canon lenses.
An STC Multi-Spectra Filter and an STC Duo Narrowband filter.
Additional spacers.
But the icing on the cake is a very special adapter/controller I had made. If you look at the camera set up you will see a device with a small Mini-USB connection. This smart little device controls BOTH IRIS and FOCUS for Canon lenses. It is a superb piece of equipment.
Attached images: Full Camera set up (Canon lens NOT included) - 183C, Spacer (which houses the STC filters), Canon Iris/Focus Controller, Lens.

Included accessories: Spacer spacer (its a bit longer than the one fitted), An M42 spacer for the Canon Iris/Focus controller.
Cyclops Optics Blade-C for Canon Lenses
Tripod Holder - Note - this tripod holder is designed to wrap around the Blade C so will not fit the camera assembly shown in the image.
STC Filters (Duo NB installed), Multi-Spectra Filter

Its a great package and for those of you who know QHY you will understand the capabilities of the 183C - Back illuminated, very high QE etc.

Price for this entire package is $2300 plus shipping and insurance.
Dropped the price by $150 - now $2150 o.v.n.o.
Added a recent image of M8 taken with the 183C and Duo NB filter.
