Price re-evaluation

Iím starting to advertise some individual items that make up the whole imaging package, like the camera (QHY12) and Ricardi field flattener. If thereís little interest in the scope as a package for imaging I may even revert the focuser to the original manual and advertise the Starlight motor focus unit separately.

It would, however be s shame to split it up like that because building the system up has taken time and effort.

So time may be running out. Perhaps make an offer for the Ďpackageí you would like. Thereís a lot of gear to go eventually that I havenít advertised or priced but think of an imaging set up and you know what i mean. Hereís a few items of the top of my head in the observatory -also for sale:
  • Intel NUC i7 500GB SS drive 16GB RAM & Windows 10
  • Mount hub pro
  • Lots of cables - EQMod, USB 3 and USB extensions etc
  • Orion widefield guide scope and ZWO mono guide camera
  • QHY 12 OSC camera
  • CLS filter
  • Ricardi field flattener

Lots of other things I canít recall.

A new situation

Views of Saturn last night were superlative this telescope really is in a class of its own.

If there are any large SDM dob owners (20” or more) that fancy a sea change imaging through a refractor I’d be very open to discussions about a trade.

Much of the gear I was selling is now pending with the only two remaining items, being the QHY 12 and the APM 152mm.


I need to state that I have now reverted the APM to its original virgin state, although it remains a telescope with a past I have removed the Starlight PDMS motor focuser which has now been sold separately. The Guidescope and guide camera also sold separately, as did the flattener/reducer.


That leaves the OTA as a pristine visual scope that could of course be easily re-furnished for imaging. It is an LZOZ triplet with a Starlght Instruments 3.5" focuser. Optics don't really get any better - although admittedly, they do get bigger! Everything gets bigger when you see a DOB


Looking at Optcorp in the US this will set up back close to $18k but currently there appears to had s new lower price from the manufacturer for around AU $12k minus shipping, import and GST. You can acquire one fully landed in Australis from the reseller here for about $14k. Your call whether new is worth the extra $5k.


I will sell for $9300 but that's the lowest. If it won't sell for that price I'll simply keep it is a visual scope myself.

Final release

$8,900 for the OTA alone. Iím happy to sell the telegozmos cover and scopeguard case separately.

Absolutely the final offer. I will keep this ad online for a short period only then withdraw.

Withdrawn largely due to lack of interest and it is simply too good to give away
