  1. Hello, and Welcome to the forum from across the pond ! Nice photos.
  2. We have two, a Half / Hitch Mk-2 with Sky Commander which is the preferred mount for our Intes-Micro M-500, and a versatile Zeiss equatorial T-Mount which quickly adjusts to Alt-Azimuth configuration. .
  3. Both last night and tonight showed clear skies through the night here at home, but Venus disappeared into the clouds as my scope came to ambient.
  4. Yeee Haaa, been waiting for ages. Finally a clear night in my neck of the woods; yes, playing tonight.
  5. I have it penciled in also, and wishing clear skies and a Happy New Year to everyone.
  6. Interesting ! Thanks for posting.
  7. Just caught up on recordings and enjoyed the episode. Not mentioned, but it appeared that they also flocked the inside of the wood tube.
  8. With my style of observing, there is none. I only have tracking, with two scopes requiring just a single power cord.
  9. Sky-Watcher 150 with two Long Eye Relief eyepieces . . . . . . . Super 10 mm and Super 20 mm Excelent condition with clean mirror. £ 100.oo Collected from Rhondda Cynon Taf area South Wales. .
  10. If higher magnification is not an absolute requirement, consider looking for a Zeiss " 6x20B " on the used market; I paid much less than your budget and am confident you would not be disappointed. The resolution is superb, and its diminutive size of one inch by four inches makes carrying it in a pocket barely noticeable. Edit: I consider it a lifetime keeper.
  11. For 2" eyepieces, a Gaviscon cap fits "perfectly"; and being white makes finding it in the dark easy.
  12. Its a finely made metrology stand which most likely came from the Zeiss factory works. A great help when a third hand is needed for micrometer measurements and other inspection uses. I stumbled upon this on ebay in a listing which was unrelated to Zeiss.
  13. Hello, and welcome from me too. You have found a great forum for the hobby.
