  1. WANTED.Lumicon (preferred) or Baader Variable Polarizing Filter 1 1/4". Must be "as new" condition and "boxed".
  2. Thanks for the replies. Received this interesting "link" in a reply to my similar topic on "Cloudy Nights" : http://www.lpod.org/archive/LPOD-2004-11-19.htm
  3. Mine is the the 1992 (Astronomy) edition by Kalmbach Publishing.
  4. Yes I've seen them and those on Amazon.com and Abebooks !! What is the "jist" of the preface to your revised edition ?
  5. Just purchased a nice copy of the original edition of the Atlas of the Moon by Antonin Rukl on eBay for the princely sum of £20.38 and wondered what are the differences between that and the later revised and updated 2007 edition ? Many thanks.
  6. WANTED. A ("hard") copy of the May 2007 issue of Sky & Telescope magazine.
  7. Thanks for the reply. How do you actually "turn it" to "vary" it ?
  8. I have a WO Megrez 90 with a 2" : 1.25" Adapter, a 2" diagonal and and Televue 1.25" and 2" Eye-pieces. My questions are: 1. Would it be best to get a 1.25" or a 2" VPF? 2. How do you attach and use thIs type of filter ? 3. Any videos about VPF's anywhere. Many thaks and sorry to be "thick" !
  9. I ordered a Tele Vue Brass Equalizer from Altair on 18 April 2011 and received a confirmatory email. My subsequent emails and telephone calls (as to progress / delivery) have been ignored. As I am fed up with "wasting my time", I have today via landline, mobile and email cancelled my order and will now look elsewhere for a more professional company to take my business. Avoid this company at all costs, their "customer service" (sic !!) is totally non-existant !!
  10. Hi James, Just ordered the Sky at Night (makes 6 items) "kit" (£9.99) from (as mentiuoned in the article) Rapid. Free postage offer if you spent over £10, so I also ordered a few "spares". Thanks for your help !
  11. Hi, Does anyone know a UK supplier for the red flashing LED's that attach to each of the legs of a tripod, to avoid tripping over it ? Are they any good ? Cheers.
  12. Hi, Came across these (variable) lights from Rigel Systems which are specifically designed for astronomers and are strongly recommended by our American friends. Does anyone know if they are available in the UK ? Cheers.
  13. Hi, What are generally considered to be the "Rolls Royce" of: 1. Red light hand torches. 2. Red light head torches. Cheers.
  14. Hi. Received a 9mm T6 Nagler this morning from Green Witch (outstanding service as usual) and it came with a black cap (without TV logo) at the (larger) "eye end" and a black cap (with TV logo) at the (smaller) "barrel end". Green Witch confirmed this configuration was "factory fresh - as supplied by TV" Cheers.
  15. Thanks Brian - just wondered what are the other reasons you don't like them ? Cheers.
