What to do with unwanted gear

Post by skyhawk »

I am sure there are many of us who have cheap items that are not worth selling on Ebay such as the odd old perfectly good cheap eyepiece.

Any ideas other than a bin

Charity shops I have asked say they wuld probably end up just getting binned ....... shame
Celestron 8" Edge HD Evolution, Esprit 120mm triplet, 72mm APO, Sky Tee 2, 6" reflecting scope, William Optics Binoviewer, Quark Daystar Ha Chromosphere on 72mm ED, LVW8mm eyepiece and Celestron 19mm Axiom, matched W.O 10 and 20mm, and a few others, D4s, D810,

For info, I am Autistic, Aspergers, ADHD, therefore if I come over as a little "short" on occasions it is not intended, thank you

Some flea-market stallholders will take virtually anything if it's free. It's worked for me.
