  1. As per title Good used condition £20+£4 signed for postage PayPal preferred
  2. Earthwin PFS-B Binoviewer with Baader T2 Prism and Precise Parts Adaptor This is the Newtonian version but can also be used with SCT and Refractors. The body of the binoviewer can be removed from the power switch and connected directly to the T2 Prism using the adaptor, giving the shortest possible light path and therefore the widest FOV, ideal for a wide field refractor. Also includes 2xGPC which screw into the nose of the bino for Newtonian use. All in good condition Please contact me with any questions £500+£10 shipping PayPal preferred.
  3. Key AF6-KL Observing Chair Excellent condition Height is easily adjusted by lifting the front of the seat and sliding, pushing the seat back down locks it in place. The seat swivels from side to side as well. You can also alter the pitch of the seat. Rubber feet and wheels on the back side of the base. Approx 10kg Reviews online £65+£10 shipping

  7. Hi I have one I'm selling it you're still looking. Cheers Duncan
  8. Congrats..... Let us know when you get to have a look through them. If you can stretch to a pair of 24mm Panoptics, you will be in heaven.
  9. If you have a look on Cloudy Nights forum, you will find a dedicated section for Binoviewers, which is very informative. One thing to consider is that the FOV will be much smaller with the BV. 15x70 is 4.5 degrees and the BV will be between 1-1.5 degrees depending on scope and set up. Rule of thumb would be BV for planets and doubles, Binos for all else.
  10. These are mind-blowing bins, the first real detailed look at the MW I had was through these. I sold that pair in search of other instruments but recently bought another as I found myself missing them. They are also good to look at, as well as good to look through. They are on the heavy side but worth the effort IMO. Highly recommended.
  11. Glad to hear it's sorted ........has it made a noticeable difference under the stars?
  12. There's a lot to be said for two-eyed viewing......and when you start off with two eyes, it becomes hard to leave it behind, I keep coming back to it :-)
  13. One thing you have to watch for is the lubricant that is used to faciltate the movement of the primary leeching out and dripping down onto the corrector plate. It's not hugely common but I have heard of it happening on occasions. On balance, I'd say horizontal would be the safest but you probably would be ok with it stored vertically, just make sure to check it now and again.
  14. Have you considered using your C9.25 for planetary imaging.....? I've captured some reasonable images with my CPC925 and a Pentax DSLR and I'm no imager. Damien Peach, widely regarded as one of the best planetary imagers around, uses a C925 a lot of the time. It will beat an achro hands down for this kind of thing. The achro will excel at Deep Sky wide views where the 925 will not.
