  1. Having now wiped the drool from my keyboard I hear Topol singing that song from Fiddler on the Roof ...... I am guessing from the rings that that is the FC76 mounted. I would love one of these but sadly my astro account is empty! Good luck with the sale Nicos. Andrew.

    Stu's Big Sale - updated

    Hi Stu, I already have a standard one so I will pass on this one. I have been thinking about the amici one for day and night use. All the best, Andrew.

    FS128 set up and ready for Jupiter

    Managed about an hour or so on Jupiter last night. Out with the Takquisition in FC76 mode. I needed to fiddle with extension tubes to get eyepieces to reach focus - 1 inch focuser travel sheesh! At least once sorted they all focus with the same arrangement. Saw the GRS on the limb at one point - salmon/orange colour. 3 - 4 bands starting to see more details the more used to looking for it I get. Seeing was variable as always. Sometimes I think my eyes are the problem as things go a bit ... er watery? Then suddenly clearer and sharper. I was getting nice views at about 120x with the ES 82º 4.7 Moved to the ES 68º 24 and scanned around enjoying non-specific stargazing. Very relaxing. Must sort out a chair!

    BNU5 Russian Binoculars

    My Dad had a pair when we were kids. They were great. I didn't realise how good they were until I got to look through a pair of Zeiss bins. Sadly got dropped many times and went the way of all things! I still have one of the objectives on my desk that I use as a magnifying glass. Really worth a fiver!

    That's what I was thinking. My left eye sees more colour and my right eye is a bit sharper. I can't afford to go the bino route yet though!

    Now SOLD - Tele Optic Giro Mini -SOLD

    Although I would prefer to sell as a lot, I am prepared to split if that helps people. Derek [DRT] has dibs on the 1.6Kg weight and long 15cm bar.
