Clean out time

Much has sold prior to making this list overnight to friends, so this is what remains now.

Round 1 - dovetail bars and rings

NOTE: ALL PRICES INCLUDE POSTAGE

1. William Optics wide-top vixen dovetail bar - 195mm x 90mm. They called this the short version. Discontinued now I believe. They were $52 US new. This one has been slightly modified with enlarged access holes both ends. Cosmetically a 7 out of 10. $30 {currently on hold for Bo - SOLD to Bo}

2. Vixen original silver anodised bar. 168mm x 43mm slotted. Missing the end stop screws (not needed). Idiot marks. New these are $99. This one $20 SOLD SOLD SOLD

3. Vixen old-style bars (minimal movement. Good for Newts. Paint meh. Totally useable. 190mm x 43mm. 110mm middle flat area, and each ring pad is 30mm long. One has an idiot added and threaded hole - $8. The other is original - $10 (so the first one is basically free, the second is $2 ) Or both for $15 BOTH SOLD SOLD SOLD

4. Vixen NEW OLD STOCK 152mm rings (I believe they made these for their 150mm Newts). Pristine new condition. Original hammertone green. Cost me $95, but will sell them for $40. SOLD SOLD SOLD

As I stressed, prices INCLUDE REGULAR POST. You want Express, you pay the extra

Just for further clarity, there is: ONE WO black wide-top Vixen bar, 2 x Vixen WHITE old style bars, ONE Vixen silver bar and ONE SET of rings (2x rings)

Stay tuned for tomorrow - self-imposed day off work without kids or wife
Potentially interested in williams optics top bars.

They are not top bars - they are wide-top bars (see pic)

Round 2 will be Vixen original focuser wheels (black plastic), Vixen GPD/GPDX/GPD2 mount parts (IMPOSSIBLE to find now. Most will fit the copy-cat EQ5), Vixen tripod adapters, VC-200L spider front decal (since most are missing after owners fudge around with collimation) and other gaff.

Run out of time until this evening - been a darned busy day for the day off I ended up not taking...
