10" reflector on a Vixen GP mount and a Coronado PST

Post by cstone » Sun Oct 14, 2012 2:54 pm

I've had an email from a gentlemen who wishes to sell his astronomy equipment due to failing eyesight
I have, reluctantly, decided it is time to abandon my hobby.

I have two instruments to dispose of, a 10" reflector on a Vixen GP mount and a Coronado PST along with various accessories and about 3 year's bound issues of Astronomy Now magazine. I wonder if you could be so kind as to enquire whether any of your members would be interested in buying any of the items.

I would be happy to give more information or to arrange a viewing to anyone interested. Because or the problems I have dealing with emails I would be grateful if contact could be by telephone. I am situated near Tockholes village.

Thank you for your time

Eq6 Pro Mount
Eq5 Mount
EQ Mod
QHY5 Guide camera
Cannon 1000D SLR Camera

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......

Hi Ross

Has he given any indication of the asking price for the PST?

Cheers

get in there Bill!!!
:P
That really will complete the circle mate - now you definitely will have more kit than the society!

On a serious note, is the vixen mount & scope not something the society would be interested in???
Cheers

He wanted £300 for the PST at which point we declined.
If considering check for what is known as "rust" - a failure of the lens coating.

Ha Ha

More kit :o just wished I could use it :D

Not sure about the PST, might be worth a visit before any commitment.

Thanks for the info about rust Dave

Regards

Bill
