Sky-Watcher 150/750 Explorer (tripod included)

This versatile Newtonian reflecting telescope provides both beginners and more experienced amateur astronomers plenty of light and high stability for a very modest price. The f5 focal ratio means this reflector falls into the class of ‘fast’ Newtonian telescopes. This telescope is therefore particularly suitable for astrophotography. The light gathering capacity of the 150 is 460 times greater than that of the naked eye alone (with a 7mm fully dilated pupil).

Extra’s included:
2 X Barlow Lens
PLÖSSL SP40mm Lens
SUPER 10mm Lens
SUPER 25 Wide Angle Long Eye Relief
SWA-58-4 WA PLÖSSL 4mm Eyepiece
1.25” SkyGlow Broadband Light Pollution Filter
Custom Screwdriver & Spanner
Instruction Manual for Telescope with Mount (Tripod) is included.
Condition: Like new.

R 6000 Negotiable

Courier and insurance costs for buyers account (or collect from owner in Pretoria).

Atik 490 ex monochrome Astronomy camera for Sale (Like new)

I have an Atik 490ex monochrome astronomy camera for sale. The camera is about 18 months old and is in an excellent condition. No scratches and the sensor is as new. 

The camera is in perfect working condition. pixels are 3.65 micron and total pixel about 9 million. 

I will also be open to sell the Atik electronic filter wheel with Astrodon 36mm Red,Blue and Green filters on request. The R19 800 price only includes the Atik camera and not the filter wheel and filters. 

Here is a link to an image that I have captured using this camera:

APM 100mm ED Doublet Binoculars (Full Package) Price : R 14 990

APM Semi Apo Binoculars (ED Doublet) – 100mm, f=500mm with Carbon Fiber Tripod and Technosky Elle Mount

Everything you need for these binoculars is included. You only need your own eyepieces.  The system is in perfect condition, the lenses are well looked after and barely show any use or age. I am only selling these to upgrade to the 120mm full apo binocular.

From my own experience, these have shown me the best views of the sky imaginable. The field is wide and stars are pinpoint bright crystals against a pitch black background. There is a 3D effect that can only be understood when experienced by you.

Galaxies like M104 and NGC 4945 are very easily seen under a relatively dark sky. Globular clusters like 47 Tucanae and Omega Centauri will swallow you whole in the field of view. This binocular regularly competes with 10 inch and larger telescopes with wide fields.

Oculars I have used with great success are 19mm 80 degrees as well as 13mm.
