  1. The OTAs on their own are just back ordered as far as I can see. In stock in some German shops and found a US shop that said a new shipment was due in two weeks. So it looks like just a shortage like many other scopes at the moment.
  2. Here you go. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Anthology-Visual-Double-Stars/dp/1316629252/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=anthology+of+double+stars&qid=1614888368&sr=8-1
  3. Looking for one of those basic 1.25” erect image 90 degree diagonals as is often included with lower cost scopes. For use with a finderscope that takes 1.25” diagonals. John
  4. Just got this and very pleased with it, Impressed with it so far. Not a really long focal length but a manageable size. Just barely within your max budget. http://astrograph.net/epages/www_astrograph_net.sf/en_NZ/?ObjectPath=/Shops/www_astrograph_net/Products/AGTEC125F78
  5. Indeed there are many kind, helpful and very knowledgeable people on CN. Just a shame that you have to wade through loads of repetitive......ahh “stuff” to get to the good parts.
  6. The Europa Clipper https://europa.nasa.gov
  7. The Tecnosky 125 and CC8 on the AZ100.
  8. All finder shoes now sold. One 6x30 and one 9x50 finder bracket left.
  9. The locking screws are there to lock in collimation. After I tighten the locking screws I recheck collimation and if it has gone off a bit recollimate by adjusting the tightness of the locking screws. Sort of a secondary collimation.
  10. It’s not going to bother anything if you stand the tube on the primary end or just lay it on its side. Big headed screws are the collimation screws and small headed ones are the locking screws. Loosen the locking screws then adjust collimation and afterwards tighten the locking screws. They should be tightened firmly. If you don’t tighten the locking screws firmly the scope will lose collimation easily.
  11.

  13. One thing I notice on CN is the passing judgement on an as yet untested bit of new equipment is a popular sport. Once someone has got their hands on one and actually tried it then I’ll take notice of their opinion.
