At the moment in my garage I have 2 very large telescopes, one is for my deep sky nebula pictures and the other is for 'visual astronomy' ie looking at stuff and taking pictures of the moon and planets. I have the opportunity to buy a telescope that I can put onto the mount of the first scope and therefore free up somespace in the garage for some, well garagey stuff like a lawnmower and some spanners. The scope I am offering for sale is my beloved 8 inch LX90 with GPS (visual, planets moon)- it is essentially the same as this... http://www.telescopehouse.com/acatalog/info_0810_90_01.html but is the slightly older version that does not have ACF - not that I think that makes a huge difference. It has GPS and an on board computer that will swing to whatever you want to see. I will also chuck in some bits and bobs, and will of course be avaliable to get you set up It is 1 1/2 years old and is as good as new - I have used it to take an awful lot of the pics on my photobucket site , all the moon and planet pics and quite a few of the nebula and galaxy pics as well. It is £1500 new and like I said I will be throwing in some extras so really I am looking for £1000 for it. I have the original box but TBH it will need to be picked up as it is LARGE. If the person I am buying the replacement from pulls out then this may change the complexion of the deal - I am sure this won't happen, but it is best you know that. any questions post them on the thread, any interest send me a PM and we'll talk.
