  1. Atik Titan mono CCD. Due to clearing out and upgrading I am selling my Atik Titan mono CCD. This CCD camera is ideally suited to deep sky photography but also has a high speed mode of 15 frames/sec at 16 bit for planetary and solar system imaging. It does not come with the original box, but it does have the original certificate, manual and CD. As well as both a USB and power lead. Would ideally suit someone starting out in the world of mono imaging. These retail currently at £581, so way less than half price. Prefer local collection but will not rule out UK postage at buyers ri
  2. I do Steve, drop me a PM if you are interested. cheers Soupy
  3. Solid Metal Pier and Fork Mount. This unit was installed in a home observatory until a few years ago. It was my intention to reinstall it into a new setting but I never got round to it. It is now time to let it go to someone who can do something with it. This is an incredibly heavy pier and fork mount with wedge built in. Perfectly suited to Astroimaging. It has motors for driving the mount and I will throw in a Celestron handset. The last time this was installed it was all working but it will need someone who is quite proficient in electrics to get this installed and working to its full p

  5. Aye Chris, I must admit I am still a bit reticent about it all, but all good things must come to an end, and it's the right time to move them onto someone else who will enjoy them. Hopefully the sale goes through OK as they are being viewed on Friday.
  6. Sorry chaps, been so sad to put this on I forgot the price. All resolved now!
  7. Based on twin Helios 6" 150mm Parabolic Newtonian Reflector Telescopes and badged 'Terrascan'. 1.25" Eyepiece Fitting, Right Angle, With Altaz Mount. This is a pair of 150MM Terrascan Binoculars made by Peter Drew. They are six inch Reflector binoculars which Peter made to order at The Astronomy Centre, Todmorden. The binoculars take standard 1.25" eyepieces and come with a pair of each 4mm, 10mm and 20mm plossl EPs as well as a pair of 2x barlow lenses. The eyepieces rotate for easy observing and are fully adjustable. It comes with an altazimuth mount also made by Peter. These perform extreme
  8. some images of the 12" for those enquiring minds.
  9. no problem Wormix, I'm struggling to find a box that might keep it safe in transit at the minute anyway.
  10. Sploo, I used to use one of the ST80s for a guide scope on my 200pds, so makes perfect sense. I live near jnt41 of the M1.
  11. yeah I'm sure i could find a box for it, not sure on price though.
  12. Having a clear out of some OTA's etc. I don't use. drop me a line if any interest you. I am having a good clear out as looking to upgrade on my equipment. I have had this stuff for a while as I was looking into an big observatory project, but unfortunately not to be, so have now decided to sell these. The OTA's were originally bought for mirror sets, so they do not come with mounts and there are a few dents and scratches on the tubes but apart from a need of a clean the mirrors are in reasonably good nick. (Edit, the Orion does have a small scratch) I will try to post some pics as soon as
  13. Cheers Damian. Aye Messier never had the highways agency to deal with so no excuse! Lol
  14. Yes John, I've browsed the moon a few times in passing and at outreach events, but always viewed it as a hindrance due to imaging. However just having a visual night it certainly stole the show!
  15. We were at the visitors car park Alan, it's a lovely area through the day and dark as a cave at night so usually very good. Shame they decided to upgrade the roads on the only clear night we have had for ages!
  16. Is a great little galaxy David. And don't worry I was laughing myself.
  17. Cheers galen, Aye there is always something trying to put us off
  18. Now that I have gotten your attention, listen to my tale and see what you think! After, putting my little one to bed I decided to make the best of the clear night that was promised and duly packed the car with my 12.5" dob, EP's, my astrotrac and a variety of other (rather heavy) stuff with the intention of doing some visual observing as well as some wide-field imaging. Car loaded, I headed up the A1M to one of the darkest sites around in Yorkshire at the minute. After a non eventful drive up I arrived at the observing carpark to find some of our society members gathered around doing a mi
  19. Wahey, our own little corner of SGL! Hasn't the weather been absolute rubbish. Up and kielder with very little sun then loads of snow now some biblical deluges. When will it all end and the clouds go away! Oh that's right, in May and June when the skies don't get dark! Lol
  20. Sounds like a great night. Looking forward to the images!
  21. Great images chaps and good to see so many of you getting out observing. Nick I presume the scope wasn't tracking well as you don't have the full setup. Vicky has part of it. Also you do realise that you shouldn't be using it, if it gets damaged on an outreach event that is not linked to the society you are solely responsible and it is not covered by our PLI. On another note, we will need it for Saturday night at the RSPB event so if you could drop it off to one of the members this week that would be great. Cheers mate.
  22. I won't book you a place at the curry table afterwards lol. Have a good trip and look forward to your observing report.
  23. all gone very quiet on here! next meeting is on the 23rd at the Old Mill pub Horbury. Guest speaker is Julian Onions. Of course we will be doing the obligatory curry Afterwards.
  24. Lovely Galaxy shot Dec, looking forward to the Kielder wide field shots too. Was a Great weekend. Nice shots Ben, have you done any processing on them? I feel there might be some detail waiting to pop out with a little tweaking.
  25. Excellently report buddy, and lots of faint fuzzies to be proud of! shame I couldn't get a pass out. Lathe looking cracking as well, I'll have to get a trip over to see it .
