I have decided to sell my telescope setup. Unfortunately, I don't use this as much as I would have liked, so I am going to put it up for sale.

The Telescope is an Explore Scientific 127mm Achromatic Refractor.
It was a package deal that came with the Twilight I mount.
Details on mount and telescope here:

I am selling it with a Celestron 2" eyepiece set

SKB water proof case:
(case is different -larger- than case listed in link)

Baader Planetarium 5mm hyperion eyepiece

Orion 2" moon filter
Orion lens cleaning kit

I also built a custom rack for a Yakima or Thule style care roof rack with tie downs which I will include.

I am not looking to separate the package.

Asking $1450 or best offer.

I Optron Mini Tower II $425

I have too many mounts currently and am thinning the herd a bit! I have two of these, both great little mounts, but its time to move on and sell one. This is iOptron's original MiniTower II, alt-az mount with iOptron's upgraded 1.5" tripod. Mount and tripod are in very good to excellent condition. The mount includes all original accessories that came with it: carrying case, AC power supply, DC power cord, handset and cable, USB handset to computer cable, and Vixen secondary saddle and the retractable secondary telescope mount. Weight is limited to 30 lb. on the primary shaft and 10 lb. on the secondary shaft.

The tripod is the later upgraded 1.5" version that includes the star shaped levelers rather than the previous ones that only had the knurled knobs for adjusting. The star shaped ones are much easier to adjust. The mount ALT clutch has been upgraded with a Teflon Spacer to ensure excellent tracking.

This is a great alt-az mount, I've used it for observing holding a AR102 Refractor and a Celestron C8Edge HD. Once the mount is properly leveled and a slew and sync to object is complete, its dead on the rest of the night. This is the perfect size grab'n'go alt-az mount.

Mount ships from 84087 (Woods Cross, UT.) two boxes, one ~32lbs, then other ~18lbs, buyer pays shipping. I can demonstrate its operation and set up if wanted.

Thanks Patrick, Text or Call 801-865-2619

Celestron Skymaster 25x100 Astro Binoculars and Orion Paragon Plus Binocular mount and tripod. $500.00 for both, or OBO, to a good home.

I've only had them since January 7, 2016. Both the binoculars and tripod are monsters. Both the binculars and the tripod are a thing of beauty but I didn't realize how heavy they would be. My skywatching is usually done solo, and I'm just not able to haul them alone. I'm very sad to let them go, but I'd love for them to go to a home with someone that would appreciate them.
My name is Frankie Ellis and I can be contacted (by text): 801-809-1828
or email: I am in Salt Lake and would be willing to meet with you any time after school.
