Intresting auction item bidding can be done online but obviously you will have to take shipping into account looks a loveley telescope https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/jefferys/catalogue-id-srje10025/lot-0c67331c-7dbf-4211-847a-a70d00a018e8

Just seen this. I actually saw it on the saleroom when browsing local auctions the other day.

Maybe worth a go but the auction room is down Cornwall and even if you got it for a song the packaging that auctioneers charge is rather astronomical sometimes so beware, make sure you check with them before bidding.

I have been tempted many times n the past with auctioneers low estimates and folks in the know have bid against me and the hammer price usually finds a realistic level, depending on whos around.

Reckon the Meade ETX comes with an eyepiece set as well, the middle ali case is typical of the Meade set

 

Oh and if you are tempted to bid for the WO + HEQ5 make sure to get a condition report and specify that they must check what is in the lot. e.g. mount/scope/tripod as we can see from the pics but what about the controller, leads, counterweight etc. It is very rare for auctioneers to know about stuff like that. Beware.

And no I am not bidding, I am trying to get rid of stuff not add to it :D

Yes I did enquire regarding shipping , they don't ship you have to use a third party to do it , to much hassle though if it was a drive able distance then it would be worth the effort , interesting to see what it goes for though

18% buyers prem plus £70 delivery and you don't really know what condition is like or what condition it will turn up like. If you got it at £200 that  over £300 - maybe just .  

Bet it turns up on ENS :laugh3:
