Skywatcher 16" Collapsible GOTO Dob

Hi guys,

I just have here a 16" skywatcher goto dob. Awesome scope, just a little to big for me as I am a pretty small guy, also isn't ideal for my car. Looking to downsize to a 12" or 10" for star parties, and visual while my AP scope does it's thing!

The goto system is great, and the absolute encoders are awesome, being able to push the scope around and not loose its positioning with the goto system is a bloody life saver! 10:1 crayford is also a nice touch, focusing is dead easy. Also has some lockable trolley wheels.

Got a bit of dust in the pictures that I forgot to clean up before I took them, but its all clean now, mirrors are also nice and clean, the primary looks pretty spotless.

Looking for $3000 neg was $3200, comes with the EPs, cigarette lighter cord, manual etc.

Can deliver to Brisbane, or pickup from Toowoomba


EDIT: Price Drop!

Dan please call me re your 16" Dob

Hi Dan

Can you call me when convenient to discuss your 16" DOB please?

I do not need something portable so moving up from my current Skywatcher Black Diamond 12" GOTO Dob.

I noticed in your ad you are looking for something easier to take to star parties. So my thinking was maybe we could chat about you taking my 12" which is in absolutely perfect condition, and I take your 16" and I throw in some cash as part of the deal?

There would be the hassle of both of us having to pack up our gear and get yours down to Tassie and vice versa but I'm sure we can work something out.

Dan, please let me know if you are interested or not by calling me 0402 636 769

thanks and regards
Gordon Williams
