WTS Astrophotography Rig

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to offload my gear as unfortunately I don't have the time to shoot astro anymore - just due to looking to explore other hobbies as this one has got a bit repetitive.

I have the following gear for sale:
  • Celestron AVX Mount - this is an awesome equatorial mount for a noob, it has gotten me some beauitful images and with the Polemaster that comes with it, I've always gotten sub-arc second guiding. Such a great mount and would definitely recommend it for a beginner. With the Polemaster, i'll bundle both for $1400. This was bought from OpticsCentral - with receipts.
  • WilliamOptics GT71 + 0.8x field flattener/reducer+ 50mm f/4 Guider + ASI290mm Pro + ZWO Autofocuser - Great kit overall, simple to use and keeps the stars in pin-point sharp with the help of the autofocuser. Looking to bundle the entire kit for $2000 which is a good deal for 4 month old scope - this has seen maybe 10 nights overall. - ****sold****
  • Celestron C8 SCT Starlight - I got this with the AVX initially, not knowing how difficult it was to shoot astro with, so I went with a wide field refractor. Looking to sell for $1700! it hasn't seen much use other than some visual stuff. I enjoyed looking at planets using this scope, this would be a great addition to someone who loves videoing planets!
  • 1600MM + 8pos EFW + 31mm filters - I am the third owner of this. Looking to sell this for $1500
    Comes with the following
    Items:
    + ZWO ASI 1600MM Cool V1.1 with window heater (V1.1 means it doesn't have the integrated USB hub on the back)
    + ZWO 8pow EFW
    + ZWO LRGB 31mm unmounted filters
    + Antlia 3.5nm Ha 31mm unmounted filter
    + Antlia 3.5nm O3 31mm unmounted filter
    + Antlia 3nm S2 PRO 31mm unmounted filter
    + Astronomik IR 742nm longpass IR 31mm unmounted filter

    Connectors:
    + T2/T2 male/male adapter
    + 11mm T2 ring
    + 16.5mm T2/M48 ring
    + M48 nosepiece


I do have some accessories such as a USB hub which has worked amazingly with my AsiAir Pro, if you buy the entire kit i'll include the AsiAir Pro and the industrial 8 port USB hub.

]

I'm located in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne, not really keen on shipping the items as the logisitcs wouldn't work out for me. I can accept PayPal goods and services if I do decide to ship, but for now, you can meet at my place which i'll provide to a confirmed buyer and happy to take cash.

If i find anything extra i'll list it here. Thanks everyone!

Maybe you should edit your ad because I read it the same as Lachlan - it clearly states "Looking to sell the entire thing for $1500"

if you buy the Celestron C8 SCT i'll throw in a Celestron OAG and a third-party 0.63x focal reducer (Pretty much same as the Celestron one but unbranded!)
