  1. Sorry, should have mentioned the price! £2200 for the lot, £1000 OTA QHY8L £600 Hyperstar III Unit £600 Thanks
  2. All in excellent condition, Hyperstar new and with a choice of Canon, Atik or QHY adapters. C11 is 4 years old and no damage or issues; comes in a great solid flight case. Comes with upgraded Feathertouch focuser, dewshield and Bahtinov mask. QHY8L is well suited for Hyperstar photography May split. and I may also sell my belt drive converted EQ6 and heavy duty pier to go with it if anyone is interested. Please contact me for more information/photos etc. Adrian.
  3. Hi,

    What is the price for the C11, sorry if I have missed it in the advert, I am on my mobile. :-)

      Hi Stephen,

      lim looking for about £1600 including the Hyperstar and a nice wheeled flight case.


  4. I'm not using my C11 very much at all these days, so I'm thinking it has to go in favour of something like an Equinox ED120 that would be a bit more grab and go for when the clouds clear. My C11 is 3-4 years old and in excellent conditon fitted with Bob's knobs and the usual dewshield and focus mask etc. It also has the Feathertouch focuser upgrade that is a lot better than standard. The Hyperstar unit has not been used and comes with adaptors for Canon DSLR, Starlight CCD and QHY CCD. Price is negotiable and i'll consider a trade for a suitable 5" apo
  5. There's a Meade one on Astro Buy Sell at the moment for £250. Bit of a bargain as the cheapest ones usually go for £300.
  6. I agree; I have been very pleased with my Olympus DPS-1's
  7. Hi FiB from across the mountains in Llanfairfechan! Fantastic skies in the Bala area- lucky chap. I have recently purchased a set of Olympus DPS-1 binos (10 x 50) and they are generally considered a good starter. I'm very pleased with mine and they are about £45 on Amazon. Welcome!
  8. Greetings from North Wales. I have fond memories of North Carolina and the time I spent by the John C Campbell folk school near to Murphy. I remember nice dark skies!!
  9. I completely agree about the C11; the planetary views are outstanding and the week before last I managed a quick look at the moon down the terminator and you could have reached into the craters - fantastic. I too had focus problems when I tried my WO binoviewers on a Megrez 110 that I used to own, but now it's sold. Apparently, if you go to Siebert Optics, you can buy an optical corrector that will allow binoviewer focus with any scope for $149. Not tried it myself but an interesting thought nontheless......
  10. I use a bathtowel bungeed around the EQ6 head before I place the scope coat over the lot. My thinking is that the towel will absorb any stray moisture that is around (if any). It's been out there all winter with no issues at all, so all seems to be working!
  11. I dont know how you found Saturn in the first place. I'm just down the road in Llanfairfechan and it's just a cloudy windy mess here.......
  12. Hi Ben, I'm in LLanfairfechan so quite close and have got a planetary imaging setup so feel free to contact me if you want to have a look while you make your mind up!
