Evostar 72ED Guide/Imaging Scope

For sale is a Skywatcher Evostar 72ED guide/imaging scope:
  • 72 mm apochromatic refractor
  • 420 mm focal length (f/5.8)
  • Dual-speed 2 Crayford-type focuser
  • Tube-rings V-style dovetail plate
  • Aluminium case
The scope is about 3 years old, and used for guiding and widefield imaging from my backyard observatory.
It has has some light scratches on the tube from the tube rings, but still works wonderfully.

Includes is a matching Skywatcher 0.85x Reducer/Flattener which reduces the FL to 357mm.
This provides a 2.8 x 2.1mm imaging FOV when paired with a ZWO ASI-1600 camera.

Also included is a Bahtinov focus mask which I have used with this scope.

See links below for features and specifications:

New Bintel price for the scope is $699.
New Bintel price for the 0.85 Reducer/Flattener is $499.

Total current new costs including Bahtinov Mask approx. $1,220.
Selling together for $650 posted within Australia.

Thanks for looking.
