254mm Mirror Dobsonian/Newtonian complete + accessories and mods – FOR SALE – will not post it – pick up only for cash.

Overall size: ~1140mm high ~ 300mm width – should fit any car

Sky-Watcher Sky-liner 250PX Dobsonian Telescope as in image + new 10:1 focuser [new] used ONCE

Total new retails at ~£. 440-499 + £. 140 [focuser] + £. 40 [rings] + £. 25 [dovetail] + other aluminium bars etc. + top dovetail vice [~ £. 25]

~ £. 440-499 Telescope with original base + 25mm 2″ Eyepiece
£. 140 NEW focuser 10:1 + retractable adaptor useful to go from DSLR to CCD webcam [they focus at different distance] – old modified focuser included – I only replaced it to allow me to be able to attach a DSLR too and also have a better finer focus + stability
£. 40 2x ~300mm rings
£. 25 dovetail
£. 40 two aluminium boxed bars [top/bottom] attached to rings and dovetail – so you can fit it on a Equatorial mount of your choice – I guess minimum EQ5 is needed – better an EQ6 or similar stronger mount.
15 Decent fan + cover + ~2m cable 5.5mm / 2.5mm DC plug for keeping mirror dry when very cold

£. 735 total [could be more, if you include the time I spent in modifying it]
Asking £. 450 cash in hand
I might accept reasonable offers – no time wasters please [really!]
I would prefer to keep it or give it to charity …

I am really sorry to let this go, as it is a good all around powerful telescope – I just cannot keep it – not enough space and getting too heavy for me [I am older!].
Asking £. 450 cash in hand – this is a WELL kept telescope – mirrors as new – you pick it up – do not have a decent box + padding for sending and it would also cost too much.

I do have original boxes for Finder scope and 2″ eyepiece and BOTH mirrors are in PERFECT condition – no erosion – I keep my gear as best as I can!
There are a few scratches on external body even a careful handler like me could not avoid!

Reason for selling it: I do not use it very much as I have other telescopes + I am getting older and it is starting to get too heavy for me and not much room left!
You can setup an EQ6 and enjoy it – where I am – I am tight in space and do not have a shed – not even the space for it!

Thank you for looking and please remember that it has almost new mirrors + new 10:1 low-profile focuser to image with DSLRs + focuser extension for CCD or visual + modified ‘long’ threaded DSLR/CCD/Eyepiece locking bolt + fan mod. with ~2m cable to a 2.1/5.5 standard DC plug [12v] + 2x 300mm EQ mounting rings + 2x DIY made aluminium bars + dovetail – You can use it on its original Dobsonian mount or over an EQ5 [minimum].
Mount and play!

Thank you for watching – do not miss this bargain – ready to point and view/image
