  1. Hi. Am definitely selling this time: Skywatcher ED80 in Black Diamond, with aluminium case, tube rings, dovetail bar, compression ring adapter on drawtube, Scopestuff 99% 2" diagonal. All in excellent used condition, and very well cared for. Case has a very few marks of use, and the scope has none. I've had it several years, and used it mostly with a Herschel Wedge. Superb colour correction and contrast. A GREAT 80mm ED. Pictures will follow in next day or so hopefully. Thinking £250 ono. NOW SOLD!
  2. Bumped - as now open to offers!
  3. Nice wax, good resuls - but wow it can take some buffing!
  4. Amazingly, I have a tin of this too! I bought it when I was working on a project Skylight Telescope package, and it was recommended by Richard Day, but the project didn't take off and the tub went into the cupboard under the stairs! I'd forgotten all about it until I saw this post! I must dig it out. Got some time off, so I must treat my scopes to a coating! (specially as I need to polish the wooden tripods again too) Ant
  5. Meade SN6 6” f5 Schmidt-Newtonian OTA. In good used condition. Comes complete with fitted single-speed Moonlite2" focuser, dovetail bar and rings, red-dot finder, focuser extension tube & 1.25" reducer and caps. A very nice semi-classic scope in good working order. Some issues: the paintwork has some scuffs and nicks here and there (please see pictures) and both the corrector plate and primary mirror could do with cleaning, but do not seem to be damaged. Collimation may need to be adjusted too. Any questions, please feel free to ask. Selling on behalf of Highlands Astronomical Society (of which I am a member). Price is £150 £125 ** open to offers!** plus postage at cost, or free collection from HAS Observatory at Culloden (and get a tour and cuppa thrown in!)
  6. That's what I was doing with my Telrad, and what I wanted to get away from. But yes, it certainly works!
  7. It's not on the wrong side, it's just not on the right side. Which for me is perfectly right anyway.
  8. AZ4 is great with it. AZ3 (modified with counter-weight) is also great, but it really needs the modification. AZ5 I don't know as I haven't had one.
