  1. Are you still interested in the Porta Mount that I have up for sale?

  2. I may split the items if I get enough enquiries for the majority of the items. Please feel free to ask.
  3. William Optics FD80 telescope 10th anniversary edition complete with paperwork. Vixen Portamount with wooden legs, William Optics red dot finder, William Optics quartz 2 inch diagonal, William Optics UWAN 28mm & 3mm SPL eyepieces, Baader Hyperion 13mm & 8mm eyepieces, TMB 5mm & 4mm eyepieces, TS 2.5mm eypiece. Kendrick anti-dew strap for scope and rdf, 2x set of anti-vibration pads. also included ruck sack, tripod bag, Portamount table top kit, William Optics 45 degree terestial diagonal, William Optics dovetail mounting plate and t
  4. I was going to say if it has the same tube diameter as the ZS66, it would be smaller and lighter than the Megrez 72, but looking at specs on their website, they both weigh the same and the Megrez 72 collapses to a smaller length.
  5. Floaters are one thing, I have a piece of loose jelly in my right eye that has to be check once a year. The hospital won't do anything about it unless it causes a cataract. If I move my eyeballs left to right a few times quickly, It looks like someone squished a spider on my eyeball and it still kicking it legs about . It destroy the view in an eyepiece, though with a binoview it looks like frogspawn.
  6. If you want to go down the Vixen Portamount route then I would go for the Portamount II than the mini version.
  7. Backlog????????????????? Yesterday, I ordered two eyepieces and an adapter................today they arrived. What's going on?
  8. Thanks for the coments so far, something for me to think about.
  9. As it says in the title. At the moment I am using a Baader Hyperion 13mm and that is the best I have got for the PST. I would like a zoom eyepiece that is at least equal in performance. The contenders are:- Baader Hyperion MkIII Meade Zoom Lunt zoom Pentax XF 19.5-6.5mm Any others, I'll be happy to hear about.
  10. Can't help you with the labels, but the image is great, nice catch.
  11. Another tip is to get the Vixen Tripod accessory tray http://www.vixenoptics.co.uk/Pages/mount_tripod_accessories.htm . It clamps on easily and helps reduce vibrations, especially if you have heavy eyepieces that you can keep in there. I would also reconmend Vibration Supression Pads First Light Optics - Celestron Vibration Suppression Pads. They certainly help at higher powers.
  12. William Optics 7x50, the view is very clear and sharp with these.
  13. I always thought it was Astreya Optics who did the optics on the WO158, the same as the FLT98. I could be wrong about the 158 though.
  14. Looking good, I was out with my PST this afternoon and that large prominence did look good.
