  3. Due to moving to Spain, I am unable to make the April 19 kelling star party. I have a pitch booked on the dragonfly area (yellow) with electric arriving 4th April to depart 8th April. I have contacted kelling heath and they have agreed we can transfer the name of the booking. If anyone is interested please let me know, I paid £58 for the pitch I'd be happy to accept £55. Thanks Dave

  5. Selling this scope as I have several scopes and want to downsize on the amount of scopes I have. I upgraded the focuser from the standard ACU-2S to the ACU-3S at time of purchase at an additional cost of approx £90 I have the original receipts showing costs of £1560. I also have a copy of the zygo wavefront analysis of the mirror. The scope is in immaculate condition and I also have a bathinov mask included for easy focusing. Collection only Cash on collection. Questions welcome and feel free to arrange to look at the scope. Here are some links to images I have taken with the scope. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nightcasper/25076194551/in/dateposted/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/nightcasper/17346624915/in/dateposted/ www.orionoptics.co.uk/CT/ct8.html Here's some info on the optics off Orion optics website All our CT range primary mirrors are made from Schott Borosilicate Low Expansion Suprax glass (virtually identical to Pyrex), as are all our primary mirrors on all ranges of telescopes. The mirrors are all produced to exacting paraboloidal standard configuration to Ultra accuracies. How exact are they? Well, we don’t release one to our coating department unless it achieves a surface accuracy of 1/20 wave (1/10PV wavefront) or better. How do we know when we have achieved that very high degree of accuracy? The CT8 is the introductory model in our incredible CT range of telescopes. Not only will it enable you to see things thought impossible with a 200mm telescope but, we know you will find in using it that images overall, even the ones you are perhaps familiar with in the night sky, become so much more detailed and interesting. Having a 1/10PV primary mirror which, along with the secondary are both Hilux coated, fine detail on the planets becomes a far easier target, contrast is enhanced because of the super smooth reflecting surface which collects all the light into a highly detailed image plane, perfect territory for high magnification viewing. Price: SOLD
  6. It is indeed a great scope I wouldn't be selling it except I got offered a tec 140 which I couldn't refuse. I also agree its a bargain. Thanks Dave
