  1. Adapter Sold. Reductions on Pier before it goes on Astro Buy n Sell. - See main posting Regards, Terry
  2. Hi I have a new and unsed Altair Astro observatory pier and (N)EQ6 adapter. Pictures and details can be found here: http://www.altairastro.com/altair-skyshed-8-observatory-pier.html ** Reduced to £300 - Buyer Must Collect *** http://www.altairastro.com/pier-adapter-skywatcher-celestron-ioptron-multi-mount.html ** SOLD *** I'm looking for £370 for the Pier and £35 for the Adapter. This represents about 70% of the current list prices. The buyer must collect from Redditch due to the weight. Kind Regards Terry
  3. Optically Polished Black Plastic I thought it was an April fools joke. At £30 I guess they will be laughing all the way to the bank. What next, A white lens cap for flats!
  4. If you need to get more back focus, unscrew the barlow lens from a 1.25" barlow and use that as an extension tube. Thats how i mount my lodestar on my orion 50mm finder/guider.
  5. I think you have started a run on those truss clamps - out of stock at Phase One If anyone else is hunting them, then have a google for Rhino Narrow Truss Clamps. Terry
  6. Lots of cloud and drizzle. OK lets take a closer look at those bottles of whiskey Sent from Mike's drinking den.e
  7. Just honk if you see a mobile astro/camping shop heading up the M6
  8. Hi All, I've got everything together and I'm looking at it all thinking "How am I gonna get this all in the car!!!" To be sure the Jaffa Cakes and Talisker will not be left behind. Google says its 5.5hrs, but im sure we can shave a little off that so hope to be onsite around 3ish tomorrow. See you all soon
  9. What will jafa cakes buy me on a Wednesday when I arrive? My tent helper (Jane) probablly wont arrived until Saturday.
  10. Oh it is very expensive and as you say you often need a custom adapter made to fit it in the focuser as it pushes the focal point intra focal quite a bit. That said it does have a nice large back focus of 75mm in most cases which gives lots of options for kit in the imaging train like a decent oag which would be a godsend compared to the TS oag. I'm tittering on ordering one, but I'm having difficulty commiting given how much I've spent recently
  11. Did you get the riccardi reducer in the end? If so I would be interested to see how you get on with it.
  12. Hi What scope do you have? If its a newt/mirror based scope an OAG will help eliminate any mirror shift and flexure. The TS 9mm OAG will fit a cannon and still leave room for other accessories in the chain like a flattener, etc. Not the best quality OAG in the world, but it does work.
  13. I have been assured by Markus at APM, that the lens spacing is the same, just the back focus required is different per scope.
  14. Hi All I'm in the process of considering a x0.75 Riccardi Reducer/Flattener for my AA115/805 F7 which would bring the scope down to f5.25 and give me a slighly larger fov on my 460ex. They are relatively new on the market and quite pricey and was wondering if any one has had any experience with them, before I take the deep dive? Im not sure if this is true, (im currently asking APM) that there various models with different internal lens spacings optimized for different focal lengths? Regards Terry [forum has mucked my siggy up!]
