Complete Domed Remote-Ready Imaging Sytem in Dubbo

I have been running this observatory remotely for 10 years, initially from Warrumbungle Observatory and more recently from a site outside the town of Dubbo in New South Wales. It has been managed by a professional astronomer, Peter Starr, all this time and has been primarily used for supernova research. I am selling as the supernova research has dried up. I prefer to sell the entire observatory to one buyer, but offers for the sub-components will be considered. The observatory can either be removed or can remain at its current site and run remotely.
Note: The original OTA on this rig was a 16" RCOS, which was sold. This will be replaced with a 17" Planewave in the coming weeks at which point new photos will be added. We will consider allowing potential buyers to test the system remotely before purchasing once everything is up and running.
The observatory comprises
1. 3.5 m Sirius Dome (~19500)
2. 17" Planewave (~18500)
3. PME 1 (~7000)
4. FSQ 106 + Robofocus (~7000)
5. STL6303/8FW/Filters/AOL (~3900) - Filters: LRGBHaSIIOIII + Spectral Analyser
6. STL11/5FW/Filters/AOL (~2300) - Filters: LRBHaOIII
7. Starlight express oculus all sky camera (~750)
8. Computer x 2 (~(750)
The price is in Oz dollars

Pme 1

I would only sell the PME if nobody is interested in purchasing the entire observatory. I do, however, have another PME (unused) for sale. See mounts on Ice in Space or Astromart.
Best wishes
