  1. Replaced the knob with a bolt and tightened well down. Never going to shift and rock solid. Would rather have a longer saddle that holds the scope more securely.
  2. With a few more items sold over the last few days treated myself to this.
  3. When I had one just used a short Geoptik dovetail and an Altair Starwave mini saddle. Thought the ADM saddle was too short.
  4. Quite pleasant outside at the moment. Didn’t need a coat to do a bit of tidying up in the back garden.
  5. Dry and sunny here and only breezey. Supposed to be turning to sunshine and showers soon though.
  6. Thought it was an April fools joke when I came across it. Looks like something you’d find in a dodgy road side burger van.
  7. It’s set in the Star Trek universe but intended to suit the adult with darker themes as well as some humour. Picard is now too old to serve in Star Fleet so no commanding the Enterprise but rather a private mission to put right a wrong. Has depth to the plot that will take a while to play out.
  8. It has already been officialy renewed for a second series with rumours of early work on a third series given the go ahead apparently.
  9. Ah you must be a member of the Seven of Nine appreciation society.
  10. There was a thread on plastic grid mats recently.
  11. Tolerances can stack up in your favour if you are fortunate.
  12. Dual-Fit Desiccant Cap Red - FLO As new with a pack of 10 new desiccant sachets. S O L D This popular desiccant cap has a dual diameter nosepiece to fit both 1.25" and 2" focusers. Red anodised screw cap and black-anodised cup. Made entirely from CNC-machined aluminium (no plastic!). Designed and manufactured in the UK. A sachet or two is placed in the cup then the lid screwed on. A captive O-ring ensures the cap fits snugly into 2-inch focusers and the lid is air-tight. The desiccant draws moisture from inside the telescope tube through the cap's breathing holes. Used regularly the cap will prevent moisture harming the telescope optics. The desiccant starts yellow then turns green when it can no longer absorb moisture. The desiccant sachets can be dried on a radiator then reused several times. Replacement sachets are available. Payment: PayPal (buyer pays fees) John
  13. Explore Scientific 3mm 52° LER Series Eyepiece As new. Only bought a few weeks ago to test in my new StellaMira scope to see if a 3mm eyepiece would be usable. Have now bought a Nagler 3-6 zoom so no longer need this eyepiece. W I T H D R A W N Very nice flat-field eyepieces with an apparent field of view of 52 degrees and a minimum of 15mm eye relief. Fully multicoated edge-blackened optics deliver high contrast, maximum light transmission and freedom from ghosting. Resolution and edge-to-edge field correction are both impressive! All Explore Scientific 52° eyepieces are Argon purged (the air inside is replaced with Argon, an inert gas) and sealed so the inside will never suffer from condensation. The interior optics will remain clear, bright and dust-free, year after year. Payment: PayPal (buyer pays fees) or Bank Transfer John
