Skylux NG 70/700 Refracting Telescope

This was used as a guide scope but of course it would also make a very good beginners scope (includes an erecting lens for use as a terestial telescope, three eyepiece lenses, finder scope, 90 degree mirror to make viewing more comfortable, magnification is 35x to 175x). It take 1.25" standard eyepieces. The mount has hand operated low geared adjustments which I found very useful in selecting the guide star. I found the mount to be surprisingly good for the price. It is still available on Amazon at £150. It is in excellent condition though the box is a bit tatty!

102mm Skywatcher achromat optical tube assembly

Six months old and in pristine condition. It comes with an optical finder and an erecting prism. It's pretty good for low power, wide field stuff - especially when used with a decent dielectric prism.
