Tel: 083 379 8435
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Asking Price: R15000
Condition: :Like New

“The SBIG ST-8300C (color) cameras are based on ON Semi’s KAF-8300, 8.3 megapixel, full frame CCD. This CCD array has 3326 x 2504 pixels at 5.4 microns making it ideal for both short fast optics in high resolution (unbinned) mode, and for longer focal lengths it can be binned binned 2×2 or 3×3. The CCD has both antiblooming and microlens technology to improve the effective Quantum Efficiency of the sensor. As a result it can be used in a wide variety of optical configurations. The camera electronics are USB 2.0 for fast download rates and rapid focus mode. The small light body accepts both C-mount and standard 35mm Nikon camera lenses. A built-in mechanical shutter is included for automatic dark frames. In addition to its imaging capabilities, it can also be used as a guider.”

Celestron CGEM Goto astronomy mount – R19 800

16 June 2017

I have a Celestron CGEM Goto mount with its tripod for sale. The mount is in excellent condition. There are some minor chips and scratches from normal wear on the dovetail saddle and counterweight.

My guiding with Phd normally gives a total RMS in the region of 1 arc seconds per pixel. In other words, the mount functions as new.

I use the mount with a 16kg telescope, however, the specifications are for up to 20kg telescopes.

These mounts go for R38 000 to R41 000 when purchased new.

Located in Pretoria North for pick up or viewing. Free shipping can be arranged if in Bloemfontein as I go there on a regular basis.
