This telescope was a birthday present for my Father who is now suffering from dementia and has not been able to use it.
It has not been used, I have unboxed it for the first time yesterday to assemble and photograph, it has been packed away now in its original boxes and bubblewrap

We are selling this as it won't be used and we are making some changes to his home.
It is a fairly high end hobbyist scope that cost over £400 new but now retails at £300 or so.
It is very heavy and will cost a fair amount to ship safely but that is included in the price

£200 shipped RMSD

SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGS
Most reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surface and then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it. Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide but requires specialized equipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive. Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to the elements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution of the telescope.ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxide as standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.
