OK, here we go...
Over 2 years with out getting out to stargaze or do astrophotography!
I can't stand seeing this equipment not going to good use. So I have decided to let someone have a chance at it.
Im listing everything in my auction, winner takes all. If reserve is not met I may break it apart and sell it piecemeal.
The reserve price is a heavy discount of the "astromart value" of everything and a fraction of retail.

This setup is absolutely wonderful. It is my entire astro gear “collection” everything is in really great shape. The cases are all in used condition and show scuffs marks that one would expect from being hauled around. The TAK FS-102NSV is an AMAZING scope and is in very good condition. It has a few minor marks on the white paint some minor scuffs (you can't see them in the dark) and some dew and light dust on the lens. If you want to have it professional cleaned that would be your prerogative but the current condition in no way impedes your view/imaging. The eyepieces are in excellent shape! The atlas mount is a monster and is the perfect beast for this scope. I have used the original hand controller and also hooked it up to pc laptop and controlled it with Sky Chart/Cartes du Ciel and a game controller. You need to download drivers and software, all are free and open source.
