C14/Paramount/STV Setup for sale
« on: September 12, 2015, 09:43:00 AM »
I have over the years been building a rig to eventually do some photometry, but with lack of further funds, and declining eyesite (uncorrectable, I am afraid to say :'( ) I am finally coming to accept that I must part with my baby.  I would prefer to sell this locally, and will deliver within the greater bay area.

I am asking 15.5k, but will entertain any serious offer.  Please contact me at for any inquiries.

I am not interested in parting out this setup, so please don't ask  :)
