SKYNYX2-1 CCD FOR SALE

Morning all

I'm a very keen photographer and whilst I had a plan to further my interest into astrophotography, it's just not happening. Time, and a bit of a recent life epiphany mean that I'm giving things 'a bit of a haircut' so I can focus (apologies for pun) on other important aspects.

In short I have never gotten around to using my SkyNyx cameras. They're still in the static bags and are completely unused. I thought I'd drop a line here to actual enthusiasts before I offer them on a wider sale to opportunists.

I have a SKYNYX2-1M and a SKYNYX2-1C. Basically one is colour and the other is mono. The specs can be found on 365astronomy

I'll keep them on here for a few days before advertising them elsewhere.

Best wishes one and all

Will

What sort of price are you looking at? 365 have them at about £1350 new.
I'm not in a position to offer, but if you suggest a price, someone else may.

I think if you are selling something you need to post the specs not ask people to look for themselves.

I did a search because I am always on the look out for gear, very low pixel count just 1.4Mp

It may be great cameras but I think people are expecting more these days, 6Mp and higher, my ZWO 6Mp ASI178MM was only £350 and offers double the frame rate.

However I wish you the best but I also think you NEED to state a price

Wow. I had posted in complete good faith.
I feel very told off Eizo. I had posted here because the forum was recommended but hadn’t expected quite that response. I’m sorry you felt that I needed to add the spec. I had tried but post wouldn't except links. It was very easy to find though so I do hope it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience for you
As for not stating a price that was an oversight, but now I have an idea, I’ll be open to offers. I’ve had them a while so not in any real rush.
Sure I’ll post photos. I’ll sort that out tomorrow hopefully.
I’m very grateful to Gfamily2 for the help. Thank you so much

Not "telling off", simply that if you sell and I am a good seller on Ebay with 1,500 and 100% feedback you inform people fully of the item and show images, why, because people like to "see" what they are getting.

Offers mean as little as this.

OK I am interested, I will offer you £25.00 each.

Just a note that uploading photos isn't working on this site - so your best advice (if you still think it's worth it) is to post them elsewhere (such as a public album on Google Photo or Imgur) and post the url of the image between the [IMG] tags.
I've PM'd you as well
